Day Tour Lipari

During your stay on the island, we recommend, to visit the Lipari Castle, a 16th-century building surrounded by walls built during Charles V’s reign. Inside the complex is the regional archaeological museum “Bernabò Brea”.

You can walk along Corso Vittorio Emanuele, the island’s shopping street, where you will find many shops, restaurants and typical bars.

We also recommend, to visit the Cathedral of San Bartolomeo, the most important cultic site of all the Aeolian Islands, and the geophysical observatory in San Benedetto to admire the panorama of Vulcano and Vulcanello.

Around 1:00 p.m., we will leave the the port of Lipari in the direction of the island of Vulcano.

On Vulcano we will also have a stop for about 2.5 hours to explore the island or to take a bath.

During your stay on the island we recommend a visit to the Vulcano thermal pool, where you can enjoy a real “wellness treatment” with the clay mud and the Baia delle Acque Calde. It is a “natural whirlpool” which you should definitely try.

For swimming we recommend the Baia delle Sabbie Nere, a characteristic volcanic sand beach with shallow and clear water.

It is also possible to climb the volcanic crater, take a walk in the nature to enjoy the unique landscapes and a beautiful panorama.

Around 4:00 p.m. we will depart from Vulcano for the island tour by boat.

The return to the port of Milazzo is scheduled around 5:30 p.m.

Perfect tour for a family with kids

Well prepared and organized. The transfer from the hotel to the port was comfortable. We went up the crater of the volcano on Vulcano with our two teenage kids with the amazing view.

Great day!

We had a great day on both islands. The swim at the black sand beach was nice. We had the perfect mix on that day with a bit of a hike, swim and culture.

I would recommend this tour. Had a great time with my girlfriend there. Everything was punctual and well organized. Was plenty of time on both islands to enjoy a lunch and to walk around.

Very nice day trip

Was a nice mixture of possible activities on the Islands. Some went hiking, some went for a warm bath in the hot pools or a swim in the cold ocean. Little bit of culture on Lipari with the visit of the old church and the museum. So there was something to do for our whole group. Thanks for the amazing day.
