See the stunning Aeolian Archipelago on a day trip to the islands of Vulcano and Lipari from Milazzo. Take a boat to Lipari and go on a walk in the Old Town. Then, sail to the UNESCO-listed chain of volcanic islands. Enjoy a mud bath in Vulcano, swim in the Tyrrhenian Sea, or relax on the beach. 

Discover the 2 beautiful Liparian Islands north of the coast of Sicily. Begin your tour in the morning at the Port of Milazzo and set out along the foothills of Capo Milazzo to Lipari. Explore the land with its wonderful old town and archaeological park. Walk down the little streets and wander into tiny shops. Admire the impressive needle- and cone-shaped rock formations of Faraglioni, Pope John Cliff, the Angels' Grotto, and the Mummy Cliff. Then return to your ship and continue on to the island of Vulcano. Relax here in the sulfuric mud spa or on the dreamlike black sand beach, or enjoy lunch in a local restaurant.

Nothing was explained in english, so we did not get any information onboard the ship (unlike the Italians who seemed to have gotten plenty). Otherwise a fine boat trip with easy to find pick up and hop off points, as well as well-chosen time slots for each island. The boat was quite full, so try to be there early. We were punctual and almost didn’t get a seat! Part of the sulfur beach (and the bubble bath in front of it) are currently closed, which was not advertised in the activity description.

The tour brings you up close to some attractions of Vulcano and Lipari before stopping in Lipari. They then spend about two hours on each of the islands. In Lipari there is not much time and the beaches are not close to the port where you disembark because the only option is to wander around and visit the old part of the island. In Vulcano you disembark near two beaches, so you have time to swim and have a drink at any of the two beaches near the port.

I believe the time spent in Lipari is not good, that is 2 hours for walking around in August, is too much especially with a teenager. If you want to go to the most nearby beach, it is 5 minutes by car, and a taxi costs EUR30 one way hence you need Eur 60 to go to the nearest beach. Vulcano have beaches within walking distances which are beautiful and would have loved to spend more time there. The mud baths have been closed for quite some time now for refurbishment. Overall though it was a nice trip and I would recommend.
