Itinerary

Full program

Boarding at 7.15 am, departure at 07.30 am by hydrofoil from the port of Milazzo.
It will land at the port of Lipari Marina Lunga. You will have to reach the port of Lipari Marina Corta (distance about 500 meters) to make the excursion of the islands of Alicudi and Filicudi at 09:30 (you need to show up for boarding at least 15 minutes before departure, equipped with our voucher / ticket).
During the crossing to Filicudi, we will meet the suggestive Montenassari, Giafante and Canna stacks, which have now become an unmistakable sign of this island. Specifically, La Canna is an 85-meter high volcanic neck and is surrounded by transparent waters rich in colorful fish.
We will then meet the prehistoric village of Capo Graziano and then continue towards the Ancient Quarries of Macine until we reach the Grotta del Bue Marino, the largest cave in the Aeolian Islands.
Arriving at the Port of Filicudi, a stop will be made for an independent visit of the island.
The port area represents the nerve center of the island, where small businesses can be found. During the stay on the island, we recommend a visit to the prehistoric village of Capo Graziano, whose findings testify to the presence on the island, during the Neolithic period, of a flourishing industry and processing of obsidian, the ancient quarries of Macine, where there are some remains of millstones.
Finally, it is possible to visit the headquarters of the Aeolian Archaeological Museum of Lipari, in Porto, where the finds found in the excavations of the Neolithic village of Capo Graziano and the finds made on the wrecks surrounding the island are kept.
In the early afternoon we will leave for Alicudi where we will stop to allow autonomous exploration.
In Alicudi it will be possible to enjoy the wild nature and the tranquility that distinguish it, walking along the mule tracks that run through it, with the characteristic Aeolian houses that wind along the sides. For an independent visit of the island, we recommend Località San Bartolo, climbing from the port to a height of about 330 meters. Here is the church dedicated to the patron saint of the Aeolian islands and Contrada Tonna, composed of a small agglomeration of rural houses representing the authentic Aeolian architecture.
We will leave to reach Lipari, where the arrival at the port of Marina Corta is expected at 18:30.
19:10 departure from the port of Marina Lunga di Lipari by hydrofoil to reach the port of Milazzo.
