Stroll through the streets of Lipari and Corso Vittorio Emanuele, dotted with small shops and bars where you can enjoy a refreshing ‘granita‘. Here you can also find characteristic ceramic objects, capers and the characteristic Malvasia liqueur. Explore the Lipari Cathedral, an extraordinary testament to art and history, and the Lipari CastleIts history dates back to prehistoric times and has seen a succession of civilisations over the centuries. From this fortress overlooking the sea, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the island and the surrounding sea. Finally, don’t forget to make a stop at the Geophysical Observatory, from where you can admire one of the most beautiful views of the island, with a panoramic view of most of the Aeolian Islands.

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.

The second destination is the picturesque island of Panarea, a magical island that holds archaeological and natural treasures. While sailing, you can admire the islets surrounding the island (Basiluzzo, Spinazzola, Lisca Bianca, Dattilo, Bottaro, Lisca Nera) and the Panarelli and Formiche rocks.

What to see on Panarea Island

  • The prehistoric village of Punta Milazzese dates back to the Middle Bronze Age (1500-1300 BC). It can be reached on foot in about 45 minutes or by Panarea’s typical electric taxis.
  • Cala Zimmari, a secluded bay nestled among the rocks. With its crystal-clear waters and characteristic red sand, this corner of paradise will provide you with moments of absolute relaxation and serenity.
  • Cala Junco is 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-shape.

To conclude your minicruise to the islands of Lipari, Panarea and Stromboli, sail towards the island of Stromboli, the island of fire. While sailing, you can admire the picturesque village of Ginostra, isolated from the rest of the island and accessible only by sea, and the imposing Strombolicchio, a volcanic rock islet on which a lighthouse was installed for navigation. Arriving at the port of Stromboli, you can disembark for an independent tour of the island. Reach the beaches with their characteristic black sand and relax by sunbathing and taking a refreshing swim.

What to see on Stromboli Island

  • Forgia Vecchia beach is a small bay with crystal-clear waters and a relaxing environment.
  • Ficogrande beach is an equipped beach ideal for families.
  • Church of San Vincenzo, from whose square you can admire a beautiful panoramic view. Here you can admire the house where Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman stayed during the shooting of the film ‘Stromboli, Land of God‘.

Stromboli is known all over the world for its constant volcanic activity that gives spectacular explosive eruptions. The most fascinating moment of the tour is reserved for the Sciara del Fuoco. At sunset, the boat will pass in front of this slope in order to witness from the sea the impressive spectacle of the explosive eruptions that this perpetually active volcano gives us. Its incandescent lava will pour into the sea, creating a surreal and spectacular scenario.
