Few charter destinations in the Mediterranean offer more drama than sighting an erupting volcano from the aft deck. Fiery Mount Stromboli, located on its namesake island off of the north coast of Sicily in the Tyrrhenian Sea, is one of Italy’s three active volcanoes that light up the night sky in a flurry of molten lava. Away from the action, the zesty aroma of Sicilian lemons and green olive groves carry on the breeze. Italy’s coastline is freckled with sleepy fishing villages and craggy coves where guests dine on freshly caught oysters, lobster and sardines. Vernazza’s tumble-down, pastel-hued Cinque Terre walking path pulls the crowds on land, but it’s best experienced by boat while snorkelling the clear, blue waters.
