The senses tell The Sciara del Fuoco

Rolling down the Sciara

On the edge of the Sciara you will hear nothing but explosions, followed a few seconds later by blocks and volcanic bombs rolling down the slope. Listen closely to this rolling, trying to catch the moment when the blocks fall into the sea.

The 4 elements: water, fire, earth and air

The Sciara del Fuoco is ideal for appreciating the view of the 4 natural elements: the fire of the volcanic products; the earth of the Sciara; the blue sea water and, not to be underestimated, a very pure air that carries the brackish sea air.
