South Italy and most of its little villages, is an area so little known to the European tourism yet in a delightful land wealthy of natural beauties, such as the Arch of Arcomagno, a natural arch of rock, entrance to an attractive coved beach,  with calm turquoise sea; the Faraglioni of Capri, beautiful sea rocks in the sea of Capri, one of many in the Amalfi Coast; or the Etna Volcano, still active and one of Sicily's biggest tourist attractions. History and architecture are also very important factors of southern Italy's culture and tourist attractions, like the temple ruins of Agrigento - Sicily; Capri offering one of Italy's most beautiful piazzas (town square) in the middle of town, Piazzetta, completely closed up, giving the impression of a courtyard, surrounded by many shops and cafes and the Torre dell'Orologio (Tower of Clock); or the over 40 mt. high statue of the Christ in Maratea situated on a hill over 300 mt. high offering a most breath-taking site over the port of Maratea.

Great tourist attractions for both rural and coastal holidays are also the town of Rivello, based on the graceful Basilicata mountains with its typical hystorical houses that can be found in all old parts of most of southern Italy's towns, and the Trulli, typical Apulia houses with cone shaped roofs. Not to mention the delicious cuisine and friendly people, all part of a world waiting to be explored and taken advantage of.

Stromboli - Travel and Holiday to south Italy, accommodation by the sea or rural

STROMBOLI EOLIAN ISLAND - SICILY - SOUTH ITALY

Stromboli is the northernmost island in the Aeolian Islands: its territory is approximately 13 square kilometers and about 450 inhabitants live there.
The island of Stromboli is dominated by the imposing volcano. In the crater terrace are visible eruptive vents that often expel lava fragments. This activity is moderate and therefore not dangerous for the inhabitants of the island since the outpouring of lava flowing down the slope of Sciara del Fuoco. In 2002 there was a big eruption whose lava material did fall off some rocks that formed the wall of the Sciara del Fuoco: the fall of rocks that caused a small tsunami that hit some of the Lipari Islands.
The coasts of the island of Stromboli is very steep and rugged and there are few beaches. The towns of the island are Ginostra and Stromboli and the inhabitants live mainly by fishing, viticulture, harvesting of capers and especially tourism.
