During the first part, we move along the coast of Lipari, the castle, Monterosa capo bianco (pumice quarries) and then pass by Panarea and admire the unparalleled beauty of its coves and the islets of Dattilo and Lisca Bianca. After Basiluzzo, the majestic Stromboli will appear before us.
The height of this legendary volcano is about 920 m above sea level. It is in perpetual activity and, for this reason, it’s also called the lighthouse of the Mediterranean. The cobalt blue waters, the almost perfect cone shape, the blackish lava-coloured slopes and the smoke are a unique sight. Especially at sunset, with the contrast of the white Aeolian-style villages perched on the slopes stretching down to the sea.
During your stop here, you will have a chance to walk through the village of Scari with its narrow alleys dotted with typical shops. We will resume our journey in the evening, moving along the northern part of the island. We will see the sunset between Strombolicchio and the villages of Ficogrande and Piscità. Once beneath the Sciara del Fuoco, we can admire the natural phenomenon of pyroclastic explosions and the village of Ginostra.
