Shop in Lipari’s flower-filled streets, and then escape the heat by visiting a bar to try a granita (cone of crushed, flavored ice) and a slice of local brioche. Whatever you do, don’t forget your bathing suit; the deep-blue sea around Vulcano is one of my all-time favorite places to swim.
The tour was excellent. The right amount of time on each island to enjoy everything they had to offer.
Great Tour, Lipari was a great little island... the hike up Vulcano is pretty good as well, not all of us made it to the top, we didnt come prepared with the correct shoes... the caves, the views along the way were beautiful
Lipari is a beautiful island and where we stopped was very picturesque with lovely streets and lots of shops, bars etc We then went on to Vulcano where we wandered and had lunch didn't try the mud baths though they looked like fun. Franco our guide was very informative throughout the trip and readily made himself available to answer the groups questions. Would definetly recommend.
This tour was amazing!
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.
Great day out. We had plenty of time on both islands. We didn't go into the mud baths as our guide put us off a bit but we spent a really enjoyable time in the sea and the whole experience was really worthwhile.
A very nice experience
We really enjoyed this tour! When visiting Lipari the taxi tour around the island is essential. The tour costs 10 Euros and lasts about 75 minutes! It had incredible views as the taxi had photo stops along the way. The only downside was on our stop at Vulcano. There simply was not enough time if someone wanted to hike up to the crater. We were told the hike was 50 minutes to the top. After a brief introduction by the guide to the island, we had 1hour and 40 minutes to hike up, take in the views and pictures, and then hike back down. The risk was not worth missing the boat so we reluctantly never tackled it as it was too rushed.
