Stromboli & Messina

On our first day at sea we sailed past the volcanic island of Stromboli. To the best of my knowledge there are 2 settlements on the island and access between them is by boat. The volcano is still active.

We next sailed through the straits of Messina which is between Sicily and mainland Italy. The tower in this photo is replicated on the Italian side and used to be the means of telephonic communication.

The town of Messina - or maybe it is a city.
