Aeolian Islands – Lipari

July 21, 2019

Lipari is the largest of the The Aeolian Islands, an archipelago of seven islands off the North Eastern coast of Sicily.  Other Aeolian islands can be found in the Aeolian Islands category in this blog.

The most direct way to reach Lipari is by taking the hydrofoil from the town of Milazzo, on the Northern coast of Sicily.  Hikers can enjoy breathtaking views around the island.  There are hiking trails for different levels and the trails’ maps can be purchased at the book shop on the main street in Lipari named Corso Vittorio Emanuele.
