Overview

Discover the wonders of the Aeolian Islands on an extraordinary one-day mini cruise to Lipari, Salina, and Filicudi from Capo d’Orlando. Embark on an unforgettable adventure through volcanic landscapes, stunning beaches, and enchanting, untouched places that will leave you in awe.

Set off from the port of Capo d’Orlando at 8.45 am towards the island of Lipari, where the majestic Faraglioni rock formations will greet you with their timeless beauty. Marvel at these towering rocks rising proudly from the crystal-clear sea. Explore the Cathedral of San Bartolomeo, a magnificent example of art and history, and visit the Lipari Castle, whose history dates back to prehistoric times and has witnessed various civilizations over the centuries. From this cliffside fortress, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the island and the surrounding sea. Don’t miss the Geophysical Observatory, where you can take in one of the island’s most stunning panoramas, offering a sweeping view of much of the Aeolian Islands.

Back on board, you’ll sail towards the picturesque island of Salina, known as the “garden of the Aeolians” due to its fertility. Here, the prized grapes used to make Malvasia wine and the famous Salina capers, exported worldwide, are cultivated. Once you disembark at Santa Marina di Salina, you’ll have time to explore the island on your own. The centre of Santa Marina lies at the foot of Fossa delle Felci, the highest peak in the archipelago, also known as the “Roof of the Aeolians.” This enormous crater is covered in lush vegetation. Santa Marina is the liveliest spot on the island, with charming shops perfect for buying souvenirs and local eateries where you can savour island specialities.

What to see on Salina Island

  • Church of Santa Marina: An 18th-century church overlooking the small port square, famous for its bell towers and tiled flooring.
  • Historic center of Santa Marina: With its characteristic and picturesque alleyways.

Finally, you’ll sail to the island of Filicudi, which still feels remote from modernity and the hustle and bustle of civilization. The port area is the island’s hub, where you can find small shops and businesses.

What to see on Filicudi Island

  • Prehistoric village of Capo Graziano: Discover remnants of a thriving Neolithic industry and obsidian processing, as well as ancient Millstone Quarries. The trek to the top is worth the effort for the incredible views!
  • Aeolian Archaeological Museum of Lipari: Located in Porto, where you can see artefacts from the Neolithic village of Capo Graziano and finds from shipwrecks around the island.

On board our mini-cruise, you’ll be welcomed by a professional and friendly crew. Let the sea breeze carry you away as you admire the breathtaking scenery of the Aeolian Islands.
