The itinerary had changed slightly due to unrest, so the Captain had some extra time and brought us to a small volcanic island in the middle of the Mediterranean off the north coast of Sicily Italy. Stromboli's population is between 400 and 850. The volcano has erupted many times, and is constantly active with minor eruptions, often visible from many points on the island and from the surrounding sea, giving rise to the island's nickname "Lighthouse of the Mediterranean".
