Our program day by day

DAY 1

Welcome to Sicily

We will meet at Catania airport, reach the incredible city center and walk around it after an unmissable Cannolo or Granita for breakfast. Catania will leave you speachless with its beautiful churches, the squares and the typical Vucciaria market. In the afternoon we sail (public boat) to Lipari island where we will find our hotel. We will have a walk and nice Aperitivo by the sea

DAY 3

An E xplosive Day!

After breakfast, we will reach Volcano Island, we walk to the top of the volcano and have time to explore the crater surroundings, getting to know everything about it.

We descent and meet our friend Rosita who will offer us the wine she produces and some local delicacies. Geyser Beach is our next stop, there we will find hot water to swim in and we will relax in the natural mud. Back lo Lipari and ready to enjoy the night with a typical dinner

DAY 5

Our last day together!

We enjoy our Cannolo for breakfast and take time to shopping and wandering around Lipari village. In the afternoon we will sail to Salina Island where we will visit a salted lake and its caves with their fascinating story. We will enjoy the best granita ever da Alfredo and then back to Catania where we will reach the airport and sadly say goodbye to our beautiful Sicily.

We will meet again on the next trip together!

About This Trip

DAY 2

Around Lipari

We will start our trekking experience by exploring Lipari Island with its Pomice Caves and in the afternoon we will restore with a nice swim in the blue sea. The sun is shining and the water is warm: perfect retreat for us today.

 

Back to the hotel and ready to spend the night on this beautiful island

DAY 4

Unbelievable Sunset

We wake up early in the morning, breakfast and transfer to Panarea. We will walk around this tiny and magic island and have lunch with a tasty Arancino, we need energies: in the afternoon we reach Stromboli and walk up the volcano Stromboli * to catch an unforgettable down. We descent in the dark, we can only hear our steps and the only light is made by our torches ... Can you imagine it?

* This activity is not always possible because the Volcano is active. The alternative is a spectacular sail under the volcano at sunset. We will follow and respect the rythm of the nature

Trip Highlights!

Walk

We think that the best way to discover a new place is "walking around it" , you will conquer Aeolian Islands and have the chance to catch the perfect glimpse while enjoyng a tasting aperitivo on top of a Volcano or right on the beach

Discover

We like to match colture and lifestyle: narrow streets in the city of Catania, little villages, churches, squares will show us the history of the region, but what about lifestyle? Local food, wine and traditions will be our gate to discover "Sicialian Way"

Relax

Did anybody say relax, sunny beaches, hotsprings and ittle villages?

Oh yes, Sicily is well known for its unbelivable blue sea and jumping into the deep blue will be the best reward after an amazing trekking day
