Do the ferries from NAples to Stromboli only go in summer?? Also what is the rate for ferries to the volcano islands from Naples? I REALLY want to visit these islands for my trip to Italy but I do not have lots of time.

no, some also run in winter season but not as much as in summer time

[quote]so what is the rate for ferries to the volcano islands from Naples?[quote]

depends on what typ of ferry you take

in case a day trip is enough for you travel there - otherwise I would recommend to stay minimum 2 nights. so you have the chance to see the red lava at night time, it is wonderful !

you can find more information when you yahoo or google ;)

Hi JJforever,

Stromboli is a great island to visit with a really impressive volcano and great walking routes.

Ferries are still going in the winter months but remember if the weather is bad they don't go as the docking at stromboli can be difficult. So you may have delays going or worse sometimes you can get held up on the island waiting for weather to calm down.

I would spend two days there so you can see the volcano's fireworks at night. Just remember to check the forecast.

Guides are available for tours and the hotels on the island are great. Let me know if you want any suggestions and I can put you in touch with some.

Rob.
