We had a great walk, down towards the lighthouse and struggling back up the hill to the Visitor Centre by which time the cloud had settled in and you couldn't see a thing. Should have looked at the Volcano while we had the chance.

5€ per person entrance fee if you want to walk along the rim of the crater. This also entitles you to entry to the visitors centre and cafe. If was quite windy the day we went but it was a fairly steady walk, might be...More

You can park outside the vistor centre compound for nothing and walk around the base of the volcano on the public footpaths like GR131, but then you don't get to see inside the crater cone. For 5 Euros per head entrace fee you get to...More
