Hi Paul L,

Service between the islands doesn't run very late, and the last Ustica Lines hydrofoil would depart Lipari at 19.55.

Hi Paul L,

I am pretty sure you would be able to get excursion to Stromboli - usually combined with Salina and Panerea- directly to and from Vulcano.These trips usually stop at less accessible bathing spots on the way.

On a personal note we have found Salina the moist restful and Lipari a better touring and family holiday base than Vulcano - unless you are a vulcanologist or want daily sulphurous mud baths that is.

Enjoy

Hi Paul,

You could surely base on Vulcano and enjoy excursions from Vulcano to the other Aeolians.

Excursions to Stromboli typically pair Panarea and Stromboli, but not Salina.

These companies run excursions from Vulcano.

thanks for the info. i picked vulcano since it's suppose to have the best beaches ( for the wife ) and i used to work as a geologist, so the crater is for me. we can still spend time on other islands since their all close by. paul

Prego Paul,

Yes, Vulcano attracts nature lovers who trek the volcanoes, boat the gorgeous grottoes, and enjoy the (radioactive) Laghetti di Fanghi, and black sand beaches.

The beaches on Vulcano have been awarded the Bandiera-Blu! www.bandierablu.org/common/blueflag.asp…

Vulcano's Gran Cratere is a relatively easy trek, but the reward is high, both for the volcano, and the stunning views.

Many Italians also own very expensive villas on the island.
