LIPARI TOUR

DEPARTURE FROM LIPARI ``PORTO PIGNATARO`` AT 10:30 AM

The ancient Greeks called it `` Maligunis`` for its mild climate: renowned for the variety of its landscapes and its territory, it is the largest and most populous island in the archipelago. Twelve volcanoes have shaped it over the millennia, making it unique and extraordinary. If Vulcano is famous for its black beaches, in Lipari, it is the white of the coast, the whiteness of the landscapes and the crystalline waters which delight the visitors. from the thin beach of Canneto to the shredded Porticello, the island is characterized by the variety of coastlines, different but equally wonderful. During our visit, you can visit many pristine beaches accessible from the sea: Campobianco, with its blue waters, and Spiaggia Bianca, one of a kind with its beautiful pumice bay will enchant you when visiting the island .

Tour Overview

Destination

Lipari Island

Leaving behind the sulphurous air of Vulcano, the mother of all volcanoes, and sailing due north, one soon comes to Lipari, the largest of the seven inhabited Aeolian Islands. Translucent waters give way to green hills and the ancient fortified walls of Lipari Town rise protectively above its two ports.
More than an Island

The heart of the Aeolian Islands

Lipari, apart from being the largest and most populated of the Aeolian Islands, is also the archipelago’s hydrofoil hub, meaning that anyone wishing to island hop a little should consider staying there as a base. Before setting off to explore other islands, however, there is plenty for visitors to discover on Lipari itself. A stay in Lipari would not be complete, however, if you didn’t take to the sea to discover the island from the water, stopping off for swims in otherwise inaccessible coves.
Local Life

Lipari By Night

At just 9km long and 7km wide, discovering Lipari is easily done in a week and the panoramic road that circles the island provides great driving, whether by car or moped. Heading north up the east coast from Lipari Town one soon comes to Canneto, a fishing village with a long pebbly beach and plenty of lidos for the summer. Further up the east coast, passing a couple of shingle bays, are the old pumice quarries, whose bright white stone gives the sea an extraordinarily tempting crystal turquoise colour. A swim here is something to remember.
History

Eye on the past

Many centuries of relative obscurity passed, Lipari following the general flow of Sicilian history as Arabs and Normans came and went, until 1544 when Barbarossa, the Ottoman Admiral, attacked Lipari and cast the entire population into slavery. Charles V, the Aragonese Holy Roman Emperor, quickly took back the island, resettled it with Spanish subjects and built imposing fortified walls on the site of the Greek acropolis, thus securing the town from future incursions.
