Overview

Explore the wonders of the Aeolian Islands with a 2-day, 1-night tour of Lipari, Vulcano and Salina

Welcome to the enchanting world of the Aeolian Islands, where breathtaking views and the magic of adventure await you! If you dream of discovering the natural beauty of Lipari, Vulcano and Salina, we have the perfect tour for you.

Our 2-day, 1-night tour will take you through three of the most fascinating islands of the Aeolian archipelago.

 

DAY 1:

Autonomous arrival in Lipari. It is necessary to be in Lipari by 8.30 am. Check-in is available from 1 pm, but the hotel offers you the option of leaving your luggage earlier.

9.30 am – Departure from the port of Lipari Marina Corta for a tour of the islands of Lipari and Salina.

The tour of the island will begin by coasting along the island’s most beautiful beaches – the Bay of Canneto and the Spiaggia Bianca (White Beach), so nicknamed because of the imposing white cliff in which it is set and the colour of the seabed. This is, in fact, characterised by the presence of pumice sediments deposited over the years. You can then admire the small village of Acquacalda as the island of Salina, the second largest island of the Aeolian archipelago, begins peering out on the horizon.

Starting to sail along the coast of Salina, you will encounter the small village of Malfa and the natural arch of Punta Perciato, a magnificent arch of lava rock that breaks away from the island and jumps into the sea. Then, you will see the beautiful beach of Pollara, where the film ‘Il Postino: The Postman’ with Massimo Troisi was shot and where you can admire the house where the filming took place.

You will then continue to Santa Marina, where you will stop for an independent tour of the island.

What to see on Salina Island

  • The Church of Santa Marina, an 18th-century church overlooking the harbour square, is famous for its bell towers and majolica floor.
  • The historic centre of Santa Marina, with its picturesque and characteristic narrow streets.

On the way back, you can admire the most beautiful caves around Lipari Island and Vinci Beach, right in front of the famous Faraglioni stacks.

Return to the port of Lipari Marina Corta is scheduled at around 6 pm.

Overnight stay at the hotel.

 

DAY 2:

Your 2-day tour of Lipari, Vulcano and Salina will continue with a visit to Vulcano Island.

8.00 am – Breakfast at the hotel. Check-out to head to the port and embark. Luggage storage offered by the hotel to allow you to enjoy the tour in comfort and tranquillity.

9.15 am – Reach the port of Marina Corta in Lipari. Here you will embark to be transferred to the island of Vulcano, a land of primordial strength and beauty. Stop for an independent visit.

Enjoy the thermal waters of the Baia delle Acque Calde, immersing yourself in a paradise of relaxation and well-being. 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.
  • Baia delle Sabbie Nere, a recommended location for bathing.
  • The old lighthouse at Gelso.
  • Spiaggia dell’Asino, a small bay set in volcanic rock.

 

2.15 pm* – While sailing, you will be able to admire the island’s beauties, such as Vulcanello, the Grotta degli Angeli and the Grotta del Cavallo, from the sea. 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. Indeed, it is said that the goddess Venus would dive into these waters every night to regain her lost virginity before joining her husband, the god Vulcan.
Weather and sea conditions permitting, stops will be made in the open sea to allow diving from the boat.

Around 5.30 pm – Return to the port of Lipari.

At the end of your 2-day tour to the islands of Lipari, Vulcano and Salina, you will return to the hotel to collect your luggage.
