What to see on Lipari Island

  • For the architecture lovers, we recommend the Baroque church of San Giuseppe and the Sanctuary of Maria Santissima della Catena, from whose terrace you can enjoy a panorama that will leave you breathless. For another marvellous view, go to the Quattrocchi viewpoint, from which you can also admire the island of Vulcano.
  • If you are an archaeology lover, don’t miss the Luigi Bernabò Brea Aeolian Archaeological Museum, containing artefacts from different eras found during excavations on the Aeolian Islands.
  • Not far from Marina Corta, you will find the Piazza Arti e Mestieri, nicknamed ‘Sopra la Terra’ (‘Above the Earth’), which has become a tourist attraction for its murals depicting the inhabitants themselves in glimpses of their everyday life.
  • If you want to enjoy relaxing moments by the sea, Lipari has many seaside places. Among the most important are the Spiaggia Bianca and the Spiaggia di Canneto.
  • For those who love nightlife, in the summertime, Lipari offers many opportunities, such as concerts, folklore and theatre festivals, as well as many clubs and discos where theme nights are organised.

Be captivated by the majesty of the Baia delle Sabbie Nere, a unique beach of black sand of volcanic origin. But the adventure doesn’t end there! Get ready for a thrilling ascent to the crater of Vulcano, where you can admire views that will leave you breathless and remain etched in your memory.

On the island it is possible to rent bicycles or scooters, even for a few hours.

What to see on Vulcano Island

  • Vulcanello, a vantage point over Lipari and an excellent location to admire its famous Faraglioni.
  • The Valle dei Mostri (Valley of Monsters), characterised by the presence of lava rocks that, depending on the point of observation and the shadows cast on the ground, form monstrous figures.

Next, you will reach the Gelso locality and the Piscina di Venere, a natural pool surrounded by tufa and basalt rocks. This magical place is shrouded in legend.
