Your Itinerary In Detail

Day 5: Filicudi and Alicudi (9.15am - 6pm) Optional Excursion

Breakfast is served at the hotel. Join another optional excursion, starting at the crossing to Filicudi and passing between the Faraglioni. Sail along the coast to the Grotta del Bue Marino for an unforgettable swim in brilliant blue waters. Next, head to the chimneys of Montenassari and Giafante and gaze up at the Canna, a unique volcano rock standing 85m high.

 

Once at the port, visit the prehistoric village of Capo Graziano. In the early afternoon, depart for Alicudi, which is the least populated island of the archipelago and perfectly preserved from mass tourism. A walk along the dusty mule track will take you back in time to cool down and enjoy another refreshing swim. Return to Lipari once again in the late afternoon.

 

DAY 6 : DEPARTURE / PANAREA AND STROMBOLI (2PM - 10PM) 

If choosing the 5-night tour, today is the day to pack up and head back home. Enjoy a final breakfast before leaving for the port of Lipari. Take a shared transfer back to Catania Airport at around 8am, 10am, 1pm, or 3pm. 

If choosing to stay an additional 2 nights, slow things down with a relaxed breakfast at the hotel and an easy morning in Lipari (lunch not included.) Depart from the port in the early afternoon, along Mount Rosa and the bay of Canneto towards Panarea. Panarea is the smallest of the seven islands, and renowned for its refined beauty and VIP clubs.

 

Arrive at Calajunco, famous for delightfully clear waters, and on Capo Milazzese try to spot the remains of a prehistoric Bronze Age village. Next, discover the beautiful Cala Zimmari, where the longest sandy beach on the island is located. Once past the beach, admire its many surrounding islets. From the port of San Pietro there are several walks venturing further in land, perfect for discovering picturesque corners and enchanting views. Don’t forget to visit the vibrant boutiques, restaurants, bars, and small nearby villages.

 

Depart for Stromboli and pass the wondrous islets of Basiluzzo and Spinazzola. Peer out at Iddu, the most active volcano in the world and a beacon of the Mediterranean. Arrive at the port of Scari and choose the perfect way to pass the afternoon: in the turquoise waters of the salty sea, exploring little beaches and coves, or walking through the colourful town to a terrace in front of the charming church of San Vincenzo. Stop here to enjoy a spot of people-watching with splendid views of Strombolicchio.

 

Continue on to the famous house where Ingrid Bergman and Rossellini lived during the filming of the film 'Stromboli'. In the early evening, arrive at Strombolicchio, a small island in the shape of a medieval castle, emerging at a height of 43 metres and topped by a lighthouse. End the day at the base of Sciara del Fuoco, a steep slope criss-crossed by lava streams, and marvel at the spectacular eruptions of this volcano in perpetual activity. Finally, leave Sciara and return to Lipari, where the trip concludes at around 10pm. 

 

DAY 7 : FREE DAY IN LIPARI

 

DAY 8 : LIPARI, MILAZZO AND CATANIA AIRPORT

Enjoy a final breakfast at the hotel, and depart from the port of Lipari by hydrofoil/motorboat, back to Milazzo. Take a shared transfer to Catania airport at around 8am, 10am, 1pm or 3pm.

Your itinerary begins with departure from the port of Lipari, where beautiful views will include the ancient castle, Mount Rosa, the bay of Canneto, and the villages of Acquacalda and Porticello. Arrive at the curious pumice stone quarries, where the white of the mountains reflects in the blue of the sea.

 

Next: Santa Marina Salina, the most important town on the second largest island of the archipelago, famous for malvasia vineyards and the cultivation of bitter capers. Wander through narrow streets and sample its famous wine, before exploring little boutiques and visiting the church of Santa Marina.

 

Why not rent a vehicle and explore this lush island deeper? Next, enjoy a traditional lunch including half a traditional Pane Cunzato, granita and a drink, before deparing for Lingua. Pass the bay of Pollara, made famous by Massimo Troisi's film 'Il Postino.' In the afternoon return to Lipari, admiring the little caves and creeks covering its western coast.

Start the day with breakfast at the hotel, before joining an optional excursion to the island of Vulcano, the third largest in the archipelago. Marvel at the shores of Vulcanello, home to the famous 'Valley of the Monsters' where fantastic shapes have been moulded in molten lava. Pass through the enchanting bay, behind which stands the 'Gran Cratere della Fossa', an active volcano whose summit can be reached by a one hour walk from the port.

 

Continuing your journey, reach a stunning amphitheater, home to Grotta del Cavallo (Cave of the Horse). Admire the 'Pool of Venus', rumoured to be an ancient bathing spot of the beautiful Goddess. Finally, visit Gelso, an tiny village at the southernmost part of the island. Gaze out at a charming lighthouse and the fine black sand beaches that characterize this part of the island.
