Sea and nature
Full day excursion to Lipari, Panarea and Stromboli from Milazzo.
Depart from the port of Milazzo at 12 pm for the island of Lipari. 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 Castle. Its 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.
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.
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.
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.
