ALICUDI TOUR

DEPARTURE FROM LIPARI ``PORTO PIGNATARO`` AT 9:30 AM

The wildest and most isolated of the sisters, of all that can be defined as modern. Here time has stopped making man and the environment a unique thing, it is a real natural temple, where the sound of the sea and the rustling of the wind are the only audible sounds while walking on the island.
Mooring at Scalo Palumbo, you can admire some of the most representative villages of the Aeolian architecture, while the beaches of Bazzina and Le Punte frame a crystal-clear sea and breathtaking views.

Tour Overview

Destination

Alicudi

Formely called "Ericusa", by the presence on the island of Erica, a plant that still abounds in the valleys and on the inaccessible slopes of the extinct volcanic cone, Alicudi is the least populated and together with Filicudi is the most ancient volcanic island of the Archipelago. Inhabited since prehistoric times and in the Hellenistic age, the island conserve some memory of the past in the remains of a settlement from the early Bronze age, extending near the rock of "Palumba".
Origin

There is always a volcano somewhere

Its shape is almost perfectly conical; the result of a volcano that had its origins more than 1000 meters below sea level, but it has been inactive for a long time. The walls of the structure are very rugged and steepest in the western part of Alicudi, while on the eastern side you can see the old terraces, now abandoned. On the same side, note the church of San Bartolomeo, located in a picturesque location.
Architecture

A unique way of building

Houses are arranged in six "clusters" reachable only by mule. The only means of transport are in fact the donkeys especially for those who must carry heavy objects, as there are no roads, but only paths and stairways made of lava stone. The Port of Alicudi is the main centre between the new pier, where hydrofoils and ferries dock, and the old pier, from which in the past a rowboat carrying passengers was shuttling to the ships offshore. At the small harbour village you can find only two groceries and a post office.
Magnifitude

Alicudi Sunset

Due to its location and lack of moorings near the coast, Alicudi remains the most isolated island of the Archipelago especially in case of bad weather conditions when the sea rises and becomes impossible to reach the mainland. An ideal destination for those who enjoy living in absolute silence and hiking on the slopes of prickly caper plants. It is a dimension of life rarely seen nowadays, a fascinating memory of what once was. The seabed are still totally unspoilt and rich of fish of all species.
