Roccamonfina Volcano, Italy - December 9th, 2008

The extinct volcano Roccamonfina, which was active between 630,000 and 50,000 years ago, is found in Campania, Italy, between Rome and Naples.

Inside the caldera, two volcanic cones are visible: Mount Santa Croce and Mount Lattani.

Moving to the coast, the city of Gaeta can be seen on the piece of land hooking outward into the sea. To its right is the city of Formia, and to its left, Sperlonga.

Offshore, currents in the Tyrrhenian Sea are visible, swirling west-southwestward.
