Full description

Go on a trip to Lipari, Panarea, and Stromboli by speedboat. Hop on board in Tropea and enjoy the ride to the various islands, taking in the sites at each stop. Get a taste for Aeolian life and see typical streets, shops, and nature. 

Begin by meeting your guide at the Port of Tropea in the morning. After a short boat ride, arrive at your first stop in Lipari, the biggest, most populated of the islands. Visit the Basilica of San Bartolomeo and the Castle of Lipari. 

Have the option to go on a boat tour of the area for an additional cost. Next, continue on to San Pietro, Panarea. Explore the island for a few hours, passing through the winding streets full of shops, clubs, and restaurants.

Pass by Capo Milazzese and the famous beach of Cala Junco. Visit the charming village of San Vincenzo and discover more traditional restaurants and shops.

Come face to face with Mount Stromboli, said to be one of the most active volcanoes on earth, where small explosions can be felt every half an hour. Head back to the boat and circumnavigate Strombolicchio.

Stop under the volcano to admire the Sciara Del Fuoco. As night falls and the evening approaches, return to Tropea on the boat.

Mr. Gaetano, the soul of this day, involves and thrills while observing Vulcano (spin-off absolutely recommended, once you arrive in Lipari: duration approx. 50 minutes; cost 10 euros each) and above all Stromboli: the view of the Sciara di Fuoco from alone would deserve the price of the ticket. The stop in the islands, my personal advice, is too short to embark on transfers, equipped taxis, to crowded beaches for the customary bath; better get lost in the villages where you disembark: in this sense, Lipari, splendid and welcoming, is definitely better than Panarea. On the way back in the evening / night, an impracticable Scirocco wind made waves able to wash all the people on the second deck rise for over 1 hour: it was not pleasant at all and each of those present protected themselves with what they could. I recommend, just in case, to equip yourself with oilskin, towels and anything else you need to return to Tropea in minimally bearable conditions.

I traveled, my husband and the 5 year old daughter. We chose it because the departure time was more "sweet" than the others, being at 10 in the morning, and therefore more suitable for the child. The cruise went very well and the timing of the stops on the islands were right .... the only flaw was that there was no swim stop except in Stromboli, on the last island. For those like us who do not want to give up snorkeling in Lipari, where the stop is 2 hours and a half and therefore allows more movement, there are taxi boats that offer boat rides with stops also for swimming and snorkeling ... We have it done at about € 10 per person each way .... and it was one of the most beautiful things that we have dedicated to ourselves.

A once in a lifetime experience, if not more than once. Mr. Gaetano, also known as Talking Cricket, with his sympathy, has brought us to the knowledge of really curious history pills! Panarea and Stromboli the most beautiful islands, extra trip to do from the island of Lipari to visit all the surrounding area absolutely to do! The Aeolian Islands are all that is around. Experience highly appreciated and to be redone! The only flaw for foreigners is not understanding what is explained during the trip
