Visit Lipari the Biggest of the Aeolian Islands

Lipari is the "capital"of the Aeolian Islands and gets the most attention from tourists during the summer months and therefore as a result can get pretty crowded. This charming place is dominated by Mount Chirica. A pretty small island by anyones standards being only 10 km long and about 5 km wide!
The town has a reconstructed Norman church and archaeological museum nearby. Definitely worth a journey for a true snapshot of how things were in simpler times.

There is a hydrofoil that will take you to there and I have included the link below that will give the the departure times from Reggio.

Please note during the winter timetable (up until 1st June) the return boat isn´t until the following day. The service is pretty regular during the summer, to facilitate the number of visitors.
