The Aeolian Islands, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, make up a wonderful group of lands that emerge from the crystal clear sea.
Lipari and Vulcano are the closest islands. You can easily reach them just in an hour of navigation!
The boat trip is the most exciting way to discover them up close, admiring “from the sea” the most fascinating views, coasts and seabed of incomparable beauty, clear waters in which to dive and snorkel.
The planned stop on the two islands will make you experience the typical “island” atmosphere that animates those who once were only small fishing villages.
Departure from Milazzo at 09.30. Having left the port, we will proceed towards Lipari.
Lipari, where the contrast between the blue of the sea and the white of the pumice mountains provides the setting for the two famous rocks “Petra Lunga” and “Petra Menalda”, is the largest and most populated island of the Aeolian archipelago. We recommend a visit to Lipari’s Castle where you will find the Church of Saint Bartholomew, the Patron of Lipari, or an exploration of the archaeological site in ”Contrada Diana” visiting the archaeological Museum “Luigi Bernabo Brea”. Finally, a walk along the narrow picturesque streets of the historical town centre will offer you the chance to do some shopping and immerse yourself in the typical Aeolian life-style. In order to discover the best panoramic sights of the island of Lipari, we recommend a bus tour.
Departure from Lipari, short navigation and arrival in Vulcano.
Vulcano, born from the fusion of “ Vulcano della Fossa” and “ Vulcanello” offers the chance to take advantage of the therapeutical benefits ensuing from a bath in the thermal waters and in the Sulphurous muds , or simply relaxing on the beautiful black-sand beaches of vulcanic origin. For all trekking fans the climb to the main crater of Vulcano, is a must. From here you have a 360° panoramic view of all the other islands or you can visit “La Valle dei Mostri” (The Monster Valley) and “La Grotta del Cavallo” (The Horse Grotto).
Departure from Vulcano to Milazzo is set at about 16.30. Arrival in Milazzo at about 17.45
