Full description
Depart the port of Milazzo at 10:30 AM to travel to the smallest of the Aeolian Islands, Panarea. After sailing for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, arrive at Porto San Pietro, where you will have two free hours to visit the small seaside village. With the buggies, you can reach the ancient prehistoric village of Capo Milazzese and the magnificent bay of Cala Junco, where you’ll be dazzled by the blue of crystal-clear water. After some time exploring, depart for Stromboli at 3:15 PM. Pass by the islets of Basiluzzo, Spinazzola, Lisca Bianca, Lisca Nera, Dattilo and Bottaro, a micro archipelago inside the main archipelago, formed by the collapse of an ancient volcano into the sea. At about 4.30 PM, reach the port of Stromboli, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Visit Piazza San Vincenzo, where you will have a panoramic view of Strombolicchio, a volcanic sea stack with a picturesque lighthouse on its summit.  Spectacular views present themselves on the journey back, when you will have the opportunity to see Sciara del Fuoco and the crater’s eruptions from the sea.

    Der Ausflug war schön, wir haben sogar Delphine gesehen. Die Bucht auf Panarea kann man sich sparen. Sie ist sehr klein, total überlaufen und es gibt keinen Schatten. Für einen Sonnenschirm mit 2 Liegestühlen wollen sie 20 EUR für 2h und das Taxi zur Bucht kostet nochmal 15 EUR ein Weg. Lieber in der Hafengegend flanieren, macht mehr Sinn. Der Stromboli war toll, die Lavaströme die auf allen Flyern und im Internet zu sehen sind, bekommt man allerdings nicht zu sehen. Also nicht zu viel erwarten! Auf jeden Fall ist die Aktivität aber deutlich zu sehen, bei Tag und auch bei Nacht, man braucht allerdings etwas Geduld. Sehr beeindruckend! Gestört hat uns, daß man auch draußen auf Deck einen Mundschutz tragen musste. Auf jeder Fähre sind die Außenbereiche mundschutzfrei, bei diesem Ausflug leider nicht.

    The crossing is wonderful, especially at night. The only negative note is little time in Panarea and too much time in Stromboli. I would stay an hour longer in Panarea, so that I can spend more time on the beach, which is already difficult to reach and you have to do everything quickly. Both islands are very characteristic and beautiful to live. Some more info, even on paper would be welcome.

    Exciting and nice trip

    Unfortunately we had bad weather so the eruptions on Stromboli were only easy to see. Unfortunately, there was no German brochure. In return, we received a lot of information about the Aeolian Islands in less than perfect English. The return trip took a really long time. You should really be sea-proof on the trip because the sea was a little rough on the way back. I highly recommend it. Panarea is really worth it. A very nice village and delicious ice cream.
