BEST TIME TO VISIT
May and October are also off-peak months, ideal for those who prefer to visit the island with the crowds a little calmer. Although the weather can be cooler, it's still a pleasant temperature to enjoy the outdoors and tendering along the water.
If you'd like to time your private yacht charter in Lipari with one of the island's cultural festivals, you will want to consider the following:
The most popular event is the Wine Festival, which takes place in May. This festival celebrates the wine made on the island and features wine tastings, concerts and food stalls.
Another popular event is the Archaeology Festival, which takes place in June. This festival celebrates the rich history of the island and features tours of archaeological sites, lectures and exhibitions.
Activities & Experiences
There is no shortage of things to do while on a luxury yacht charter in Lipari, the largest of the Aeolian Islands. Some of our personal favourites include:
The Lipari Cathedral is a beautiful Baroque church located in the heart of the old town. It was built in the 18th century on the site of an earlier church and features a magnificent façade and interior.
Museo Archeologico Eoliano
This museum is located in the old town of Lipari and houses a collection of artefacts from the Aeolian Islands. It is one of the most important archaeological museums in Italy and is definitely worth a visit.
Valley of the Mills
The Valley of the Mills is a must-see for any visitor to Lipari. It is an ancient volcano that has been inactive for thousands of years. Today, it is a beautiful valley with hiking trails and a stunning view of the island.
Punta Castagna is a beautiful spot on the north coast of Lipari. It is known for its clear water and stunning views. There is a small beach here that is perfect for swimming and relaxing.
E Pulera restaurant
E Pulera is a Michelin-starred restaurant located in the town of Canneto. It offers an exquisite dining experience with stunning views of the sea.
Other Aeolian Islands
While so close to the other islands, with your very own Lipari yacht charter, it would be remiss not to explore some of the other Aeolian Islands. If you have to pick just a few, we recommend Vulcano, Stromboli and Panarea. Each island has its own unique charm; definitely worth visiting to understand better the island chain and how they each differ.
