What people are saying about Aeolian Islands

Bathing at the foot of a volcano and then seeing it pour lava is impressive

The first part is hard. Palmarés has a very small beach and far from the port, a limited number of restaurants are very hot and many people arrived at the same time (several boats full) which implies that if you do not bring food the best thing you can do is just set foot in land is looking for a place to eat. But it is worth paying this toll for the subsequent experience of reaching the island of Stromboli, bathing on the black beach at the foot of the volcano .. Tips. Be ready for boarding soon to go on the upper deck of the ship. Especially in the last section that you will see the eruptions. Do not catch macarronada. You will be eating school macaroons with reduced visibility while the volcano show takes place outside. Take sandwiches or buy arancinas or similar before in the boat bar. The organization is really good. Of course, there are many people and if in Spain the rows do not go very well, in Italy they are directly riots. Patience worth the pain

The tour guide Alexandria was great! She told different things along the way in Italian, English and German. We first went to Panarea, which was really nice. We had 2 hours to walk around and visited the prehistoric village. Next was de island Stromboli with the beautiful black beatches. Here we could walk around for about 3 hours. Our tour guide organised a little tour and showed us the highlights of the island. When we were on the boat again we went to the other site of the island and saw an amazing sunset and a lot of little errutions of the vulcano Stromboli. It was a really great day!

Superb excursion! A moment out of time. We followed the program with the cave, the venere pool, a stop for swimming and a disembarkation on the island of Vulcano. We also had the choice of staying two or four hours on the island. The crew were very friendly, a great atmosphere on the boat. Well worth the price. We highly recommend!

Great organization

Very nice and competent team. The well-being of his guests was very important to Francesco. Thank you very much for this great day. The Stromboli gave "everything". Lava flows and explosion ... the boat has extended the stay there. A must for every Sicily vacation.

Volcano and sea

Nice day trip with lots of information on a comfortable ship. The activities of the volcano on Stromboli are very impressive; the observations from the ship are a unique experience at sunset.
