3. From Tropea: Stromboli, Panarea, Lipari Guided Day Tour

The Aeolian Islands are natural wonders to be discovered and the best way to do it is undoubtedly by boat. Take part in a mini-cruise to the Aeolian Islands to get an overview of these splendid islands, each one different from the others, and in just one day, you will be able to grasp the peculiarities of each island. Wind and sun have forged the character and identity of the islanders. A sea still full of fish and clean, caves and very high cliffs, stacks, and beaches with fine black sand, solfataras and mountains of white pumice, and all the charm of the island's environments. Despite the vicissitudes of history and the changes imposed by the modern world, this identity has survived with its customs and traditions. The archipelago of the Aeolian Islands, north of the Sicilian coast, in the province of Messina, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000. Seven islands of volcanic origin some of which there is still a fair amount of volcanic activity. The largest island is Lipari, followed by Salina. The smallest, Panarea, is also the most exclusive island, preferred by VIPs. Stromboli, thanks to the intense volcanic activity of "Iddu" has seen a strong increase in tourism in recent years. Vulcano remains a very popular island both for the spa and for the tourist attractions. Finally, Filicudi and Alicudi, west of the archipelago and close to Palermo, are the islands for lovers of nature and tranquility. Alicudi does not circulate vehicles and is characterized by a wild and uncontaminated territory, ideal for a perfect Sicilian mix of beach holidays and trekking.

What people are saying about Calabria

My daughters and I loved Domenico. He was the best!! Very fun and personable. He spoke english well and gave us an amazing tour of all of the coast. He was in communication with other skippers to make sure the seas were in the best conditions for us to visit, and showed us the most beautiful areas. He even took us out of the way of other groups and gave us personal snorkeling tours of different beaches! All while giving us a history lesson of the coast. We finished off the tour with a cold bottle of Prosecco, and could not be happier with our day! Shout out to Skipper Domenico!

Nice skippers and easy-going nice and pleasant experience with prosecco and music ... There are those who complain that they wanted the "boat" instead of a super-equipped and new 10-meter dinghy. Profile rating 4.5 / 5 the maximum is never given to the next greetings from romaaaaaaaa

Beautiful ride and very good the captain / skipper Antonio who made everything more interesting. The sea describes itself! Super super

Very kind skippers! Swimming in fantastic sea water, away from the hustle and bustle of crowded beaches.

Highly recommended! Very nice skipper, very kind Rita and of course… wonderful places!
