"Vulcano: hot rocks and sulphuric gases" Sicilia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by call_me_rhia

Sicilia Warnings and Dangers: 27 reviews and 14 photos

If you go to the volcano's crater you'll see some clear warning signs.
1- the ground is hot and you can burn yourself, and the earth crust is thin
2- the sulphuric gases can choke you if you go too near
Both warning are very real: on the crater's edge you should walk very carefully: the soil (over and underground9 is extremely hot. About sulphuric gases, you should avoid walking inside the crater: if the wind changes direction you may well find yourself stuck in there chocking - like many others who disregarded the warnings
