Aeolian Islands Day Tour: Lipari and Vulcano from Cefalù

Your adventurous day exploring Sicily’s volcanic archipelago begins with a pickup at your Cefalù-area hotel. You’ll be transported via a comfortable, air-conditioned coach to the port of Milazzo. At Milazzo, board a yacht and head to the island of Lipari, the largest in the Aeolian archipelago. After you arrive in the port, head off on a guided tour of the island's archaeological sites, after which you’ll have time to yourself to explore Lipari Town. Go for a shopping excursion, or sit down for a fresh, Mediterranean lunch. The next stop on the tour is the neighboring (and appropriately named) island of Vulcano, which, with its crater and thermal activity, is a memorable destination. Take advantage of its geological activity and enjoy a mud bath and a paddle in its thermal waters. On the way back to Milazzo, take the opportunity to admire the views from the yacht; you’ll pass beautiful grottos, rock formations, and natural pools as you go. Once you arrive at the port of Milazzo, board a bus back to Cefalù, where you’ll be returned directly to your hotel in the late afternoon.
