Full description

Visit 3 of the most beautiful Aeolian Islands on this day tour from Tropea. Climb aboard the comfortable excursion boat to start your adventure. Your first destination is Vulkano, the southernmost island whose sulphur baths are known for their medicinal properties. Spend 90 minutes on the island and explore it as you wish before continuing on the tour. On the largest Aeolian Island of Lipari, you can enjoy the sight of colorful fishing boats in the harbor and admire the views of the city. The castle towers high above the town, and the streets on either side are decorated with flowers of the Marina Corta and Marina Lunga districts.

Further inland you will find caper bushes, pumice stone mines, and fantastic viewpoints. You have the option of taking a bus tour or exploring the island on your own. Afterward, you will head to the volcanic island of Stromboli with one of the highest volcanoes in Europe. Watch the fantastic eruptions with plumes of smoke and let yourself be drawn under the spell of this natural spectacle.

Visit the village of San Vincenzo, which attracted Ingrid Bergman and Rossellini. Stroll through the small boutiques and souvenir shops, enjoy an “aperitivo”, or bathe in the crystal-clear water.

Fantastic experience, if you have never seen the Aeolian Islands, this experience is for you! We had time and space at our disposal, to be able to taste all the experiences that the islands could give us. The captain who led the ship "sciara del fuoco" of 09.08 was wonderful and a fantastic guide .. explanation and presentation of each island worthy of a tour, we really want to listen to him .. in fact we thank you for the wonderful experience that me and my boy we can in the heart!

We were on 2 August 22 at the Aeolian islands of Stromboli, Lipari and Vulcano with departure from the port of Paola. The experience was very nice and allowed us to visit what are for me the three most beautiful islands .. The captain told many anecdotes and was very thorough in explaining where to go and what to visit once landed. Overall the hours available to be able to turn were right, we did not run to see everything and we never risked losing the motor ship (sciara del fuoco) even if we always recommend arriving 10 minutes early as the captain is very precise on the times of departure and arrival. With the addition of € 10 there is the possibility to always visit various caves of Vulcano and Lipari by ship. The crew is very kind and attentive to any ills that the ship may cause. Always keep the ticket collected at the port at hand as it will be asked for each boarding. The beautiful and organized ship, complete with toilet.

The boat trip itself is very nice as it gives a good glimpse of what the Aeolian Islands have to offer. My main disappointment is the guide’s explanation in English. The contents were sparse and extremely limited compared to the version provided in the Italian language. I could appreciate the discrepancy from the limited knowledge I hold of the Italian language. I recommend that the English version is revised and possibly pre-recorded by someone with clear English accent. The audio system also lacked clarity in certain areas of the boat and suggest that this is checked out too. Otherwise, the captain was cordial and helpful and the boat itself was very comfortable. During our boat trip we saw some dolphins and also some tuna swimming close by. We took the optional boat trip available at Lipari port which was enjoyable and recommended. We also joined a bus tour when we reached Vulcano which proved to be a great option as it took us to some extremely beautiful viewpoints eg Capo Grillo.
