Depart from the port of Milazzo at 09:30 to the picturesque island of Lipari. During the voyage, you will admire the promontory of Milazzo, upon which the great Castle dominates, and the island of Vulcano. Reaching Lipari, you will be greeted by the majestic Faraglioni, imposing rock formations that emerge proudly from the crystal-clear sea. Stroll along Corso Vittorio Emanuele, lined with local shops, restaurants and cafés. Explore the Lipari Cathedral, an extraordinary testament to art and history, and visit the Lipari Castle, whose history dates back to prehistoric times and has seen a succession of civilisations over the centuries. You can enjoy breathtaking views of the island and the surrounding sea from this fortress overlooking the sea. Finally, remember to stop at the Geophysical Observatory, where you can admire one of the island’s most beautiful views, with a panoramic view of most of the Aeolian Islands.
In the early afternoon, set sail for the island of Panarea, the smallest and also the most exclusive island of the archipelago, chosen as a holiday destination by many VIPs. Explore the prehistoric village of Punta Milazzese, dating back to the Middle Bronze Age (1500-1300 B.C.) and reachable on foot in about 45 minutes or by Panarea’s typical electric taxis. Take a dip in the crystal-clear waters of Cala Zimmari, a hidden bay nestled among the rocks, the only sandy beach on the island. Enjoy the sun at Cala Junco, one of the most beautiful inlets in the Aeolian archipelago. Here, you will feel as if you are suspended between sky and sea, surrounded by rocks that give it a peculiar u-shaped.
Once back on board the boat, you will take a tour by sea to admire the micro-archipelago in front of the island and then continue on to Stromboli. There, you will stop at sea in front of the port of Ginostra to admire the picturesque village that can only be reached by sea.
When you land on the island of Stromboli, you will have the opportunity to stroll through its colourful streets and along its typically black beaches, such as the Forgia Vecchia beach, a small bay that offers crystal-clear waters and a quiet, relaxing environment, and the Ficogrande beach, an equipped beach ideal for families. Reach the church of San Vincenzo, from whose square you can admire a beautiful panoramic view. Finally, treat yourself to an aperitivo or a good granita at sunset in one of the cafés overlooking the sea.
To conclude the minicruise of the islands of Lipari, Panarea and Stromboli, you will continue by sea to Strombolicchio, an islet of volcanic origin that represents the northernmost point of Sicily. Finally, reach the Sciara del Fuoco, where you can admire the suggestive spectacle of the volcano’s eruptions from the sea. Stromboli is a volcano in perpetual activity, and its incandescent lava will pour into the sea, creating a surreal and spectacular scenery. You will feel fortunate to witness one of the world’s most exciting natural phenomena.
