We will arrive at the Baia delle Sabbie Nere, a very black volcanic beach, and the Gran Cratere della Fossa. We will reach the Piscina di Venere and then we will arrive in Gelso, a small, sparsely populated village characterized by unspoiled nature.
During navigation, at the discretion of the captain and marine weather conditions permitting, it will be possible to make stops for swimming.
At the end, we will make a stop on the Island of Vulcano to allow the free visit of the island.
Vulcano is famous for the volcanic phenomena that characterize it, such as mud and underwater fumaroles, known all over the world for the health benefits of the skin and the treatment of rheumatism. Once we get off the island, we will be able to visit the Thermal Pool of Vulcano, the Baia delle Acque Calde, facing the mud, the Baia delle Sabbie Nere beach. Do not miss the climb to the Gran Cratere del Vulcano, a pleasant 45-minute walk through gorse, volcanic boulders and the black and sandy soil, made up of volcanic dust. From the top the view is breathtaking!
Afterwards we will leave for Panarea. Once in Panarea it will be possible to admire the bay of Calajunco, above which is the prehistoric village of Capo Milazzese and Cala Zimmari. The panoramic tour will continue between the islets, until we reach the port of Panarea, where we will stop for about two hours.
Panarea is the smallest island of the Aeolian Islands and, with the islets of Basiluzzo, Spinazzola, Lisca Bianca, Dattilo, Bottaro, Lisca, the rocks of Panarelli and Formiche, they form a micro archipelago located between Lipari and Stromboli.
In Panarea there are few beaches within walking distance including Zimmari, the only white sand beach in the Aeolian Islands.

In the afternoon we will leave Panarea to go to Stromboli. During the transfer, you can admire the picturesque village of Ginostra, isolated from the rest of the island of Stromboli and reachable only by sea. At the discretion of the Captain and weather and sea conditions permitting, we will make a stop for swimming. We will then continue towards the Sciara del fuoco, arriving at Strombolicchio, an islet off Stromboli which represents the northernmost point of Sicily.
Arriving at the port of Stromboli, we will make a stop on the island for about two hours for the independent visit.
While staying on the island, we recommend visiting the church of San Bartolomeo and Piazza San Vincenzo. Looking out from the square, you can admire a splendid panorama.
