We booked the afternoon excursion to Stromboli from Lipari with the Merenda Navigazione company and were not disappointed. We had a short stop at a cove of the Panarea Island for a swim, then one hour stop at Panarea's main localilty (san Pietro), then a 2:30 hours stop at Stromboli for a swim and a snack and then, after sunset,...

In July we have been visiting Sicily. During our stay in we booked the tour "Panarea and Stromboli by night" with Tarnow Minicrociere Isole Eolie in Milazzo. Cutting a long story short, 95% of the guests were seasick - no kidding. At our first stop in Panarea 3 people were lying down right at the pier, one of them collapsed.... More

Went here just last week and what can i say, except BEAUTIFUL! Few tips I wish people told me: 1) TAKE mosquito repellant with you, because they will EAT YOU ALIVE! 2) The 4-5 souvenir shops they have are quite pricey, so just stick a lava rock in your bag instead! 3) There are no street lights at night, you...

The hilltop town of Stromboli with its winding lanes local souvenier shops and restaurants made the 3hr stop well worth it. The view of stromboli eruption at night time was also spectacular. The only down side is that it is a full 2hr boat trip to get there and back so check the wind forecast before booking. The round trip... More

The hostess on our boat from Tropea recommended an excellent Pizzeria "Da Luciano" about 30m down from the church on the main tourist street to the harbor. We were waiting for our pizza when we heard a great rumble as if a huge lorry had just driven down the cart width road outside. The clouds from the top of the... More

Take a boat trip to Stromboli for the sunset display, if like us you hit it lucky you may see the Volcano exploding into the air as well as the lava flowing down the mountain into the sea. A fantastic day. We normally avoid organized trips but this one we are glad we went on. We spent a few hours... More

We went to stromboli hoping to walk to the summit but this was not possible due to activity at the top making it unsafe. However you are allowed to walk to 400m without a guide to see the lava flows so we did this instead. half way to the lava flows is a restaurant which i recommend eating in before... More

The path to 400 metres was open but above that was closed due to the increased volcanic activity.but even from there the view of the lava flow as spectacular.to see it really glow you need to be there at around sunset. Bring a head torch to see your way down and walking shoes.
