After departing from Milazzo, sail to Panarea, the smallest of the islands. Soak up the glamorous atmosphere of the island, favored by VIPs, as you stroll around the narrow streets of its historic center. You will continue to pay a visit to the prehistoric village of Capo Milazzese, where you can learn more about Panarea's ancient origins. Visit Cala Junco Bay, a spectacular beach in the shape of an amphitheater that is ideal for underwater swimming. Finally, relax on the sandy beach of Cala Degli Zimmari before continuing your journey.

Enjoy some free time to discover this island, which is home to one of the most active volcanoes in the world, at your own pace. Visit Saint Vincent’s Square, named after the church dedicated to the same Saint, and the house in which Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman lived during the shooting of the film "Stromboli terra di Dio" (Stromboli land of God). As the sun sets over the island, enjoy panoramic views of the port and volcanoes from the main square. Watch as the fire of the eruptions and the dark sky clash with each other providing ever-changing colorful creations in the Sciara del Fuoco, which will be visible from the sea during the return journey.

What people are saying about Milazzo

Be sure to hike up to the church, plaza and viewpoints at the top of the hill when you get to the town on Lipari island. One takes the right road off the plaza after one gets off the boat rather than the left one which takes one to a fairly uninteresting tourist street. It is quite an adventure up on top of the hill. There are also a few archaeological museums up there. However, we were happy just walking around and exploring and looking at the views over the cliffs. On the island of Volcano we just crossed the island which is about 150 m across, went to the beach on the right side of the road and rented two reclining chairs with an umbrella. They had change rooms which were nice. The water was absolutely delightful. It is definitely worth the five euros per person to rent the reclining chairs and umbrella. So the fun and excitement of exploring a very old town is complemented by a relaxing time swimming at the beach.

The cruise is pleasant and allows you to visit each of the islands. We were lucky enough to see Stromboli erupt even though it was less intense than earlier in the week. The boat stayed long enough in front of the volcano for us to enjoy the show. And what about the sunset over the sea. We didn't know where to look, I recommend this activity

Based on the information sent on the application, it was possible to plan well (arrival time, parking time, etc.). The route plan sent took me exactly to the meeting point. The ship left exactly from Milazzo and from the stops according to the program. It is a good idea that the departure time is indicated on a sign when leaving.

Great value for money. Stromboli erupted quite a few times - but travelling on a Sunday meant few restaurants were open.

lovely day island hopping. lots of free time on islands
