    1. From Taormina: Chic Panarea and Stromboli Full-day Tour

    Take a tour of Stromboli and Panarea, both belonging to the Aeolian Archipelago.  Enjoy this is unique chance to see volcanic eruptions and learn the history of these ancient islands. On a private motor boat equipped with toilets and bar, you will arrive at Panarea onto Calajunco Bay and the small Zimmari Beach. Take in the quiet beauty of these stunning beaches as you explore the second smallest of the islands. Meander along its winding streets and gravel beaches, taking in the the perfect Sicilian backdrop.  Back on board again and sail around the rocks in front of Panarea and then proceed to Stromboli, home to one of Italy’s 3 active volcanoes. Constantly active, you will be able to see the eruptions from the sea and the many viewing points on the island. This spectacular phenomenon has given the island the nickname of 'Lighthouse of the Mediterranean'. After looking over the small ...

    The tour guide Alexandria was great! She told different things along the way in Italian, English and German. We first went to Panarea, which was really nice. We had 2 hours to walk around and visited the prehistoric village. Next was de island Stromboli with the beautiful black beatches. Here we could walk around for about 3 hours. Our tour guide organised a little tour and showed us the highlights of the island. When we were on the boat again we went to the other site of the island and saw an amazing sunset and a lot of little errutions of the vulcano Stromboli. It was a really great day!

  • From Taormina: Lipari and Vulcano Mini Cruise Aeolian Tour

    2. From Taormina: Lipari and Vulcano Mini Cruise Aeolian Tour

    The Aeolian Islands are a fascinating volcanic archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea north of Sicily. They are named after Aeolus, the demigod of the winds.  Lipari is the biggest, most populated Aeolian Island and has historically been the most significant. Lipari offers a grand archaeological museum housed in the buildings around the Duomo. Also impressive are the white shiny pumice quarries, which, overlooking the sea, give the water an amazing turquoise hue. Vulcano, which gives its name to all volcanoes, is particularly famous for its sulfurous mud baths and its smoking main crater. A man named Stevenson lived on Vulcano until the last major eruption in 1888. He never returned although his villa is still visible and intact. The tour departs from Taormina by bus to Milazzo harbour on the North coast of Sicily then continues by private boat to Lipari. In Lipari there is plenty of time ...

    This was a wonderful trip. We went on August 5, leaving early morning from Taormina. The tour guide on the bus was excellent. She also made some of the announcements on the boat. She spoke English, German and Italian and took good care of us. The islands are beautiful and the boat tour around Vulcano and Lipari before disembarking was especially amazing. We took the 10 Euro bus/taxi tours around both islands and got to see some beautiful places. The drive around Lipari even allowed for a brief, 20 minute swim at a beach on the north of the island. Both of the bus/taxi excursions around the islands were in Italian, and we do not understand the language, but it was still worthwhile for us. I highly recommend this experience.

Bathing at the foot of a volcano and then seeing it pour lava is impressive

The first part is hard. Palmarés has a very small beach and far from the port, a limited number of restaurants are very hot and many people arrived at the same time (several boats full) which implies that if you do not bring food the best thing you can do is just set foot in land is looking for a place to eat. But it is worth paying this toll for the subsequent experience of reaching the island of Stromboli, bathing on the black beach at the foot of the volcano .. Tips. Be ready for boarding soon to go on the upper deck of the ship. Especially in the last section that you will see the eruptions. Do not catch macarronada. You will be eating school macaroons with reduced visibility while the volcano show takes place outside. Take sandwiches or buy arancinas or similar before in the boat bar. The organization is really good. Of course, there are many people and if in Spain the rows do not go very well, in Italy they are directly riots. Patience worth the pain

Super experience, really nice to be able to see the islands from the boat, Lipari with not much to visit but very nice and great for buying souvenirs, really top volcano if you are looking for a swim in clean and beautiful waters, the beach with sand black is easy and quick to reach once you land on the island, crystal clear water and perfect temperature, the beach with warm water is less exciting .. cloudy and not very clean water, however particular the fact of bathing in really hot water .

A great and rewarding experience. Climbing the Vulcano was a good time to master. Sturdy footwear is recommended. The sulfur fumes coming from the columns look impressive. Alexandra as a travel guide a gift: she answered all questions gladly, made an island tour on Lipari for interested and brought us closer to country and people.

Super nice trip. I can only recommend. Our guide went out of his way to explain everything to us. Gladly again an excursion with Get your Guide. Everything went just fine, including pickup directly from the hotel.
