Departure for Panarea from the port of Milazzo at 12:00. While sailing, we will admire the promontory of Milazzo dominated by the castle and the ancient village. Inside the walls, there are the Ancient Cathedral and the Palazzo dei Giurati.
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.
During the stay on the island, we recommend a visit to the prehistoric village of Capo Milazzese, dating back to 1400 BC, reachable on foot in about 45 minutes, or with the electric taxis typical of Panarea and the church of San Pietro, the main religious building of the 'island.
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. 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. It is also possible to climb to the crater of the Stromboli volcano up to the Observatory located 400 meters away, from where you can have another magnificent panoramic view of the island.
At sunset, we will return with the boat under the Sciara del Fuoco, to watch the suggestive eruptions from the sea.

Expected return to Taormina at about 24:00.
