Begin your day trip in Taormina, where you’ll meet up with your guide and hop aboard your coach. Head north for roughly an hour before switching to a motorboat at the Port of Milazzo. Set out on the water toward Lipari, learning about the volcanic island’s history and pumice production as you go.
Enjoy some free time to explore at your own speed when you arrive. Take a walk around the Old Town, or stop by the Lipari Archeological Museum (own expense), brimming with in-depth displays on the local marine life and volcanoes, as well as the history of the Aeolian Archipelago.
Pause to purchase lunch before journeying to the island of Vulcano by boat. Aside from the three steaming volcanoes you'll find there, Vulcano’s main attraction is its mud baths. Consider paying a relaxing visit to one of them, or use the time to spread out on the beach and swim in the Tyrrhenian’s warm waters.
On the return boat ride to Sicily, take a spin around the island’s coastline, passing the Faraglioni Rocks and the Grotta del Cavallo (horse cave).
Your day trip will conclude with a coach ride back to your original departure point in Taormina.
