Lipari Island, Italy Port


The name Lipari is shared by both the island itself and its main town where the port is located. When you disembark at Lipari port, you’ll find yourself in the middle of everything, with plenty of attractions and activities just a short walk away. If you’d like to explore further afield, Lipari boasts a comprehensive and easy-to-use bus service.

The largest of the Aeolian Islands found just off the northern coast of Sicily, Lipari is known for its perfect weather and beautiful scenery. A popular stop on many Mediterranean cruise itineraries, this Sicilian island offers visitors a wealth of things to see and do and thanks to its small size, you can travel across it in one day. So whether your stay is long or short, you’ll always be able to explore, soak up the atmosphere and really get to know Lipari during your visit.

Sightseeing in Lipari

Lipari is famed for its natural terrain and a series of active volcanoes are a particular highlight. But that’s not all the island has to offer, with everything from walking trails and historic castles to sun-kissed beaches and fantastic shopping opportunities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Museo Archeologico Eoliano

Without a doubt one of the very best museums in Sicily, the Museo Archeologico Eoliano traces the volcanic and human history of all the Aeolian Islands. The museum is divided into three sections – an archaeological area dedicated to artefacts from the Neolithic Period and Bronze Age up until the Roman era, a classical section with discoveries from Lipari’s necropolis and a comprehensive section on vulcanology.

Cattedrale di San Bartolomeo

Located in the very centre of the Lipari, the Cattedrale di San Bartolomeo overlooks the island from a volcanic crag. You’ll have to make a challenging uphill trek past Greek settlement remains, Spanish fortifications, a few decaying churches and the former bishop’s palace, several of which have been included in museums, before finally reaching the cathedral itself.

Parco Archeologico Contrada Diana

Outside the citadel, the Parco Archaeologico Contrada is one of the most popular attractions to visit. Here you can see what remains of the original Greek walls which date back to the fourth and fifth centuries, as well as several Roman houses. The south-western section of the park is the acropolis, where you’ll find authentic tombstones visible in the overgrown grass.

Shopping in Lipari

With markets and artisan shops galore, Lipari is packed with places to pick up a souvenirs and gifts for friends and family back home. As well as trinkets and presents, the shops across the island sell a wide variety of other goods, including clothes, electrical items, perfumes and traditional food products which are a must-try.

Via Maurolico and Via Garibaldi in the east of Lipari are two top locations for shopping. With a vast array of stores and boutiques offering stylish clothes, accessories and shoes, these areas are a trend-setter’s dream. Peppered amongst the fashionable shops, you’ll find plenty of arts and crafts kiosks offering traditional pottery, sculptures and jewellery.

The lively Corso Vittorio Emanuele is Lipari’s main road and it’s the best place to go if you want to indulge in some retail therapy. Here you’ll find many of the island’s most popular shops and services, including a tourist information office, bookshop, supermarket, fashion boutiques, souvenir shops and speciality food stores, as well as plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants where you can pause to re-energise.

Eating out in Lipari

Lipari is full of traditional restaurants which serve up delicious authentic Sicilian and Aeolian cuisine alongside a variety of local wines. These cuisines are similar to Italian and include delicacies such as lobster ravioli, freshly grilled swordfish, stewed lamb and homemade pizzas. If you’re just looking for a snack, there are plenty of ice cream parlours and pastry shops to be found – be sure to try some pistachio profiteroles.
