  baziluzzo,in the middle of the view

Favorite thing: once upon a time...panarea island was only one island with the other isolated islets ...before a volcanic explosion breaking down the crater under the sea....

in the middle,baziluzzo ,a amazing islet, formed of vitrified eruptive rocks.much visited during the harvest of capers.you'll find there roman remains and mosaic traces.
20m under sea level,by dead calm, you can see traces of a village and a 24 centuries old harbour entrance....

on the left:panarea
background:stromboli

Fondest memory: going for a tour of the island with a boat and discover formiche,bottaro,dattilo panarelli,lisca bianca,lisca nera... islets of pumice and obsidian,deserted excepted by wild rabbits!
wonderful sea bottoms...
