Sometimes called the Aeolian Islands (as the domain of Aeolus, god of the winds), the Lipari Islands are a volcanic archipelago visible from Sicily's eastern Tyrrhenian coast, easily accessible by ferry or hydrofoil from Milazzo and also Messina.

The most important islands are Lipari, Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi, Stromboli,

Panarea and Vulcano. Here you'll find beautiful scenery, volcanoes, castles, thermal resorts, water sports, good fishing and, of course, some great beaches.

Lipari is the largest island and in Summer, the most crowded. Dominated by Mount Chirica, Lipari has an area of almost 37 square kilometers. It's almost 10 kilometers in length and about 5 kilometers wide. Lipari's natural ground water sources haven't been fully been utilized; freshwater arrives by ship from Sicily, which is about an hour away depending on which transport service you use...

Vulcano is located very close to Lipari, separated by a wide strait. The highest points of the island are Mount Aria (501 meters) and Mount Saraceno, almost as high. The last major eruption of Vulcano (386 meters) was in 1890. Vulcano's thermal bath resort, operated by Geoterme Vulcano (090-985 3012), is open year round.

Salina named for its salt mines, is the second-largest of the islands, and also the greenest, with extensive viticulture. Its twin peaks give Salina a strange appearance.

Stromboli which with Vulcano is probably the most famous of these islands, is closer to the Calabrian coast than it is to Sicily. Its Greek monuments are not spectacular. Far from the other islands, dominated by a single large volcano, Stromboli itself is impressive from a distance.

We are pleased to pick you up from your hotel and drive to Milazzo port, where under our help and suggestion you will take an hydrofoil to one of the Islands: Vulcano, Lipari, Salina or/and so on... You do not need any guide at the Island, since you will enjoy a day through special local foods, nice beaches, shops and cultures. We will wait your return at the most convenient time you wish to come back from the Islands to bring you back to your hotel.
