Explore Italy's Volcanoes
Italy is located just north of the boundary between the African Plate and the Eurasian Plate. As such, it experiences a lot of volcanic activity. The country is home to more than 30 volcanoes, most of which are dormant. These volcanoes are mostly located within one of three clusters of volcanism in Italy, and these clusters are situated along the central region of the mainland, in the northeastern part of Sicily, and around the island of Pantelleria. Now, there are three active volcanoes in the country, they are Mount Etna in Sicily, Stromboli on the Aeolian Islands, and Mount Vesuvius near Naples. Mount Vesuvius is the volcano that destroyed the city of Pompeii, and it is presently the last remaining active volcano in the European mainland.
