Description

As soon as we leave the port of Milazzo we will sail towards the island of Panarea, the smallest and most 'fascinating' of the Aeolian Islands, with arrival and disembarkation at the port of San Pietro. Panarea is truly unique in its charm and beauty. From the port there is direct access to the picturesque village of San Pietro with typical white houses arranged next to each other, set in a colorful nature. From here, among the many meeting places, restaurants, small shops, and boutiques scattered along the narrow streets that cross it, it is possible to reach the main points of attraction (on foot or with typical local taxis): the Church of San Pietro - with its valuable mosaic and the terrace from which you can enjoy a beautiful panorama, Drauto, the Cala degli Zimmari – with its particular sandy beach. A path of steps leads to the promontory of Capo Milazzese and the suggestive Cala Junco bay, an incomparable cove with breathtaking colors and a crystalline sea that hosts a small pebble beach. Above, in the frame, a prehistoric village dating back to the Bronze Age (1400 BC) with the remains of 22 oval-shaped stone huts and one with a quadrangular shape, perhaps a place of meeting and worship of the community. ** At 16.00 a.c. there is a direct connection that will allow you to reach the island of Stromboli. During this connection you will cross the ancient volcanic caldera of Panarea, you will be able to see the volcanic remains that have emerged, islets and rocks that have formed a mini-archipelago: Formiche, Dattilo, Panarelli, Lisca Nera, Bottaro, Lisca Bianca, Basiluzzo and Punta Spinazzola. Stromboli, 'iddu', the black giant that emerges in all its grandeur from the deep blue sea. For millennia it has been one of the most active volcanoes in the world, with its 'Strombolian shots' - explosions of lapilli, ashes and magma visible at regular intervals of 15/20 minutes - it is like a beacon for sailors. From the port of San Vincenzo 'Scari', immediately attacked, long black beaches of pebbles and sand alternate. From here, a road crosses the village and allows you to reach the Church of San Vincenzo with its panoramic square in front of which you can see Strombolicchio, also known as the 'grandfather of Stromboli', above which the lighthouse of the island resides. Continuing along the same road, it is possible to reach the 'Casa di Ingrid', today a house museum, where the famous film 'Stromboli Terra di Dio' by Roberto Rossellini was filmed with Ingrid Bergman. At dusk, while in all the other islands the evening is spent in a conventional way, with an aperitif, dinner or two visits to the disco, in Stromboli we embark and, passing under the Sciara del Fuoco, it is possible to watch from the sea to the show of incandescent lapilli. When there are effusive eruptions, as happened in 2019, the lava river slides down the slope and ends up in the sea, releasing large columns of steam.
