What people are saying about Sicily
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.
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!
The boat was on the crowded side, but there was plenty of ventilation and the staff was vigilantly instructing guests to keep their masks in place. Time on each island and after dark to watch Stromboli do her stuff was just right. Unfortunately, only a little bit of eruption action to see, but that’s just how it goes sometimes.
Great trip, had ample time on both islands (just over 2 hours on each) guide gave good information about where to go and even offered a free tour on Lipari
This trip could be easily accomplished in 9 hours . We had to kill time in Lipari 1 hour and Vulcano 2 hours.
