What immediately catches your eye, once you arrive in Lipari, is the blinding color of the sea of beaches and coves, a shade deriving from the gravelly bottoms at the pumice quarries. Equally impressive are the coastal areas with views of Salina, the stacks, Vulcano and Vulcanello, often reachable only from the sea, thus making a boat ride essential to get to know the beauties of the island.
Even the hinterland of the island reveals important beauties, between concrete traces of the archipelago’s past and museums with perfectly preserved relics: through these testimonies it was possible to trace the historical stratification of Lipari, which from the Neolithic was subject to dominations that have left a tangible trace within the territory.
