Caicco Cruise Aeolian Islands

Discover the wonders of Sicily

 

Caicco Isole Eolie


Weekly program

Day 1:
Arrival at Catania or Palermo airport and transfer to the port of Milazzo. Boarding after 18.00 at Milazzo, welcome drink - allocation of cabins. Free time to visit Milazzo.
Travel briefing by the Captain and explanation of safety rules for the
cruise Dinner and overnight on board.

Day 2: Milazzo&Stromboli
Breakfast and departure from Milazzo to Stromboli.
Arrival in the late morning.
You can admire the Volcano and the small flows of lava, hear the roar of explosions from the top and smell the pungent odour of sulphur. Surrounded by the blue of the sea, Stromboli presents a fascinating spectacle. This small dot on the map offers us a glimpse of what is constantly happening in the raging furnace beneath the Earth's crust.
In the afternoon, free time to visit the island.
Possibility of organising guided tours for those who are interested in going up to the crater.
From the port, you need to climb up the narrow streets of the village to find the "Ufficio delle
Guide", the departure point for ascent of the volcano.
The path follows the coast and then climbs steadily, becoming increasingly steep
towards the summit. At the top, the bursts of fire offer a truly unique
spectacle. After watching the show, you make your way back to the boat.
Those not interested in climbing the volcano can take advantage of the free time to stroll up to the old observatory or to explore the village.
Boats rarely spend the night in Stromboli, because the water is very
deep and it is difficult to find
a safe anchorage. The captain will decide where to anchor, based on the
weather conditions. Dinner and overnight stay.
 
 
Day 3: Stromboli&Panarea

Breakfast on board and departure for Lisca Bianca, Panarea's second island,
