The Gran Cratere della Fossa is the activ volcanic site of the Vulcano Island, Southern Italy. its last eruption occured in 1888. Since this date, its activity consists in fumarolles' emissions.
This video (made in october 2005) shows this fumarollic field in the crater and on the northern flank of the volcanic cone.

Hveravellir is a geothermal area in the central Iceland. A lot of hot springs are present with fumarolles.
One of the most fabulous places is a geyserite "volcano" . (Travel organised with Comptoir des voyages (http://www.comptoir.fr/))

At the foothills of the spectacular volcanic mountain Námaskarð is an expanse of hot springs called Hveraröndor Hverir that are known for their changing variety. You may also find a number of fumaroles, mud pools and mud pots that all seem to be boiling with relentless energy. The pass Námaskarð is strategically located at a short distance from the Krafla volcano system as well as other interesting geological spots like Búrfellshraun and the desert Mývatsöræfi.
Námaskarð earns its notoriety chiefly because of its sulphurous mud springs called solfataras and steam
springs called fumaroles. Though you will scarcely find any pure water spring in this wonderful geothermal site of Iceland, the beauty of the colorful minerals defies all comparisons. The gigantic size of the mud craters is what makes you go ‘wow’ at the sight of them.
The other thing that is sure to strike you about Námaskarð is the sheer lack of vegetation. However, if you give a thought to the high temperature range, it does not appear an impossibility altogether. The constant emission of the fumes has made the ground utterly sterile and acidic, unfit to sustain any floras and faunas.
