The mother Island

The coast around Lipari is wild, rocky and undeveloped, with splintered rocks offshore and extraordinary views.


The main characteristic of the Aeolian gastronomy is the wide use of natural local spices, that enrich and enhance the particular flavours of the culinary recipes. Their world most famous capers & tomatoes make their cuisine as unique as their location.

Seafood takes primary place in the hierarchy of ingredients and very often fresh fish is grilled and served with “salmoriglio” (a sauce made from olive oil, fresh lemon juice, oregano and chilli pepper).

A section which deserves it’s own particular attention is oenology, where liqueur wines win the prize for their excellence. The most famous of these is Malvasia of Salina, a sweet dessert wine considered one of the best in the world. 


Snorkeling is one of the most famous activities on the islands, the possibility of places are endless. 

The colors of the Liparota sea are extremely varied. Under the pumice quarries you will find an uninterrupted sequence of small and large caves, where the water is coloured with fluorescent turquoise.

Get lost in the untouched nature ideal for trekking & hiking. You will be surrounded by cliffs overlooking the sea from where you can admire breathtaking views, beautiful beaches, vineyards and cellars.

Walk by the port Marina Corta for an aperitif in front of the sea, the best end of a day in Lipari.Enjoy life in a boat. 

Rent a yacht and love everything that the ocean has to offer.

Inhabited since ancient times and characterised by intense volcanic activity, the Aeolian Islands have been the subject of exceptional archaeological finds.
