very nice mix, well done! maybe Portugal makes the list of closest non-bordering? I guess it depends on what you mean by eruption but Stromboli is constantly active

You're from Rome, right? Can you tell me if Rome's really on the coast?

yes I'm from Rome - I'd say Rome isn't on the coast (the sea is about 20 km away from the ring road surrounding the city) and no one here considers it a city on the coast, however technically I guess it might be considered so, especially if you consider 'metropolitan area'. For example see http://www.laboratorioroma.it/progetti/Centralit%C3%A0/pagina%20Centralit%C3%A0.htm where you can see that the sea is well outside the ring road, however the 'comune' (which translates as municipality I think) does touch the sea.
