By purchasing our package, you will benefit from a shuttle service that connects Catania Fontanarossa Airport and the port of Lipari, and vice versa (click here for the return trip).
Passengers are transferred by shuttle, minibuses, private coaches and hydrofoil.
The Catania Airport > Lipari connection by Clarissa Viaggi is a collective transfer service. The round trip from Catania Airport to the port of Lipari operates every day from Monday to Sunday, including public holidays, and is available from April to late September.
In the Spring/Summer season (1 April – 30 September), the package includes the transfer from Catania Fontanarossa Airport to the port of Milazzo, with pre-arranged timetables and meeting points with the driver, and a hydrofoil ride from Milazzo to Lipari.
The Catania Airport > Port of Milazzo shuttle bus is a quick transfer service. Our vehicles follow the motorway route, with a journey time in regular traffic of approximately 2 hours. The Milazzo-Lipari hydrofoil makes the crossing in about 1h20.
Catania Fontanarossa Airport is the closest airport to Milazzo, where you can board to reach the Aeolian Islands. There is a large influx in the summer, so we recommend booking well in advance to take advantage of the transfer service.
Passengers arriving by plane at Catania Fontanarossa Airport with destination the Aeolian Islands are recommended to choose daytime flights arriving at Catania Airport during the hours 9 a.m./5 p.m., as the Liberty Lines hydrofoil service makes the last run by 7.30 p.m. These schedules allow you to take advantage of Clarissa Viaggi’s transfer service from Catania Airport to Lipari.

Upon arrival at the meeting point, the driver will assist the passenger in arranging luggage onto the vehicle designated for the transfer. Once all passengers have occupied their assigned seats, the driver will start the journey at the scheduled time. Those not present at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time cannot benefit from the transfer. They will not be entitled to any reimbursement of the sum paid. The passenger can travel on the next ride, subject to availability, paying the transfer cost directly to the driver.
