The Aeolian Islands, well known as the “seven sisters” archipelago, emerge from the crystal clear sea like majestic queens. So beautiful, so different one from each other!
The boat trip to Vulcano, Panarea and Stromboli will give you a taste of this “great beauty”, leaving you the desire to come back again…
Departure from Milazzo at 9.30. Having left the Port of Milazzo we will proceed towards 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 degrees° panoramic view of all the other islands. Finally we suggest you visit “La Valle dei Mostri” (The Monster Valley) and “La Grotta del Cavallo” (The Horse Grotto).
Departure from Vulcano, short navigation and arrival in Panarea.
Panarea, the smallest and less elevated island of the Aeolian archipelago, is also the most glamorous, frequently visited by the VIPs’ who love its sea, its beaches as well as its lively nightlife.
The historic centre, a canvas coloured deep blue and candid white, illuminates the narrow streets that lead you to Saint Peter’s Church (the main religious building of the island). After visiting the Cala Junco Bay, in the shape of an amphitheatre defined on its sides by strange rocky masses, creating a spectacular natural swimming pool, ideal for underwater swimming, we recommend a lie on the sandy beach Cala degli Zimmari.
Having left Panarea, we will sail along the route of the inlets Basiluzzo, Spinazzola, Lisca Bianca, Dattilo, Bottaro, Lisca Nera and the rocks Panarelli and Formiche. All these, form a micro-archipelago between Lipari and the island of Stromboli.
Stromboli, one of a kind, is the island of one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The rhythmical explosions of ash and lapilli give the island a fascinating and wild appearance. During our stop over, you will be able to visit Saint Vincent’s Square, named after the church dedicated to the same Saint, and the house in which Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman lived during the shooting of the film “Stromboli terra di Dio” (Stromboli land of God). Looking out from the square, the panoramic view of the port with the Strombolicchio, the oldest volcano of the Aeolian Islands, can be enjoyed.
Furthermore, there are breath-taking scenarios at night, when the fire of the eruptions and the dark clash with each other providing ever-changing colourful creations in the Sciara del Fuoco, visible from the sea during the return journey. Arrival in Milazzo between 22.00 and 23.00 depending on the sunset.
** Departure times from Milazzo and from Stromboli will be changed during the season depending on the time of sunset.
