It is less expensive to take this It is less expensive to take this tour than to get transport up to the Messina port, ferry, ferry between islands, etc. The islands are unmissable, especially on Lipari where there is a lot to see. However, they do not use a private motorboat, it is just a ferry that is VERY crowded.
All in all, this tour is probably the most convenient way to get to the Islands. More Less. Loved the islands of Lepari and Loved the islands of Lepari and Vulcano.

We were picked up at a bus stop near our hotel, and then driven about 2 hours to the port picking up people along the route until we had a full bus. The boat trip was beautiful- sea was so blue! We stopped at a few scenic places for photo opportunities. Plenty of time allotted at both islands. We did the mud baths. They did not smell nearly as bad as I thought they would. Went into the sea near plumes of hot geysers. Incredibly warm!
Do it! I found this trip not to be up to Ian Graeme W. I found this trip not to be up to the standard that we have come to expect from Victor. First at the collection point they were 20 minutes late in collecting us and secondly we understood for information provided by you that we would sail around Stromboli to see the active volcano in the evening this did not happen.
Pick up at 7. Raymond B. Relaxing tour with lovely scenery and a smooth boat ride. Tour instructed us to be early at port if you want to find a place upstairs as this tour is a crowd puller.

Not much to do at both islands but Lipari has much more history and places to visit. I did not do lunch at Lipari but at Vulcano as I was not interested in the stinky mud baths. Excellent lunch at Da Vincenzino especially their spaghetti vincenzino. The Mercedes 12 seater which drove us to port and back was very uncomfortable as it springs a lot at the back seats.
Every bump would respond on your back. Otherwise enjoyable day out. Good reliable transport and Good reliable transport and interesting Guide who had a heavy bias towards the German language! The trip was a relaxing break from the busy life of Taormina.
Lipari has a pretty town, interesting to wander the streets. A long day but good value for money. When we arrived on Vulcano, Santo Read more.

Together with the tiny islands of Basiluzzo, Spinazzola, Lisca Bianca, Dattilo, Bottaro, Lisca Nera of which little still remains and the boulders of Panarelli and Formiche, Panarea forms its own minuscule archipelago. The touristic port is at the San Pietro crossroads, where visitors can take in characteristic homes, bottegas and shops.
We loved the Aeolian islands, however for us this was the highlight.
It was a km or so gentle walk up from the port to the start off the path. At first, the walk up to Vulcano seems a bit daunting, however it is relatively We keep coming back as we enjoy the island so much. Very laid back, good restaurants and of course the mud baths to restore aching bones and muscles. Smelly mud pool, the sandy beach with the bubbling underwater, good restaurants and bars, excellent hotels, interesting sightseeing and lovely beaches, Most of all, peace and quiet.
You can also visit other Islands easily and I recommend it very highly - I will be back! Of the three volcanos we climbed this is the hardest the middle meters is The walk to the crater took us some 30 minutes. Be sure to wear the comfortable shoes, not necessarily trekking. Views from the top are absolutely stunning, especially taking to account the fact, that you are standing on the top of active volcano, where sulfur Stayed overnight at Casa Arcada - clean and cute. Walked up Scalata Vulcano - worth doing with closed shoes, great view.
Dinner at La Piazzetta - delicious and fresh tourist menu, wine was superb, staff very helpful with me being coeliac. The island is unique, If you visit Vulcano to make the walk to the top of the mountain, then the trip is worthwhile. Different corners of the small island are interesting, with impressive viewpoints over the other Aeolic islands.
