Travel Guide to Ustica, Italy

Ustica is one of the smallest and the most charming islands of Sicily. An area of the island is a little more than 8km2, so it’s very convenient to explore the place on foot. Like many nearby islands, Ustica is of volcanic origin. A significant portion of the island is covered by rock formations that look pretty grim and mysterious. The island has substantially changed its appearance for hundreds of years; today that’s a storehouse of precious natural attractions.
