Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Aeolian Islands Day Trip from Taormina: Lipari and Vulcano. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
What can you say other than WOW about this trip? Volcano's, black sand beaches, sulfur baths, and of course Italian food along with a boat ride. It was delightful. We loved Taormina anyway, it was almost our favorite place, (sorry Florence is still top of the list). There is no place like Taormina though and the views are incredible. We could see lava flowing from Mt. Etna from our patio. WOW!
This tour is worth the money. The information provided was insightful and the restaurant chosen for lunch was nice.
We had a great time on both islands it was worth the money we spend the tour leader was very helpful and he speaks good English and he gave us enough information of both islands too.
Really good day. The boat to the islands was quite packed and the journey to/from fairly long but we weren't disappointed when we got there. Lipari was beautiful, whilst Vulcano was a little basic and smelly but had a great black sandy beach.
The boat or ferry ride over to the islands is crowded and again you feel like cattle being herded into a cattle liner. Most people didn't have a place to sit down if they wanted to be outside. Lipari is fairly crowded but has great shopping and restaurants. Vulcano is quite smelly with the sulphur from the volcano but you can swim at the beach for an hour which is quite nice
Well organized transport, nice bus and boat. Very good use of time.
only problem was guide was hard to find and stay with off boat at lipari.
Very well organised and enjoyable. Lipari was delightful. Would have preferred more time there and less in Vulcano's Portr di Levante - which was tacky and unpleasant
Our second trip in our 2 days - better dressed for all contingencies this time! First stop was Lipari - and we could have stayed there all day!! This island is a terrific place for an extended holiday,particularly as getting to the other islands by ferry is much easier! Volcano was interesting to see, but not a place for us. Both islands being closer to Milazzo, the boat was much bigger and so much more comfortable - the snack food was fresh and the coffee was good - did enjoy our Molinari sambucca with our last cup on the way back!! The two tours we took were an excellent way to get a look at the Aeolian Islands for first-timers to Sicily,particularly as we had started from Palermo travelling for 3 weeks anticlockwise as far as Taormina.
