Lipari’s HistoryLipari (Roman Lipara, ancient Greek Meligunis) is the biggest of the Aeolian Islands, in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the north coast of Sicily, and also the island's main town. It has approximately 11,000 inhabitants and during the tourist season (May-September) its population reaches up to 200,000. The island lies 22 miles from Milazzo, which is its natural link to the mainland. Its volcanic nature is revealed by its dominating colours: the white of the pomice-stones scattered all around the coastline and the black of the obsidian of Castellaccio Vecchio. Thousands of years ago obsidian represented the islands principal export with the continent because it was extremely suitable for the manufacturing of sharp tools and arms. The volcanic phenomenon can also be observed in the island's thermal springs (up to 600), in its solfataras and in its 12 volcanic systems converging towards the 602 metres of Monte Chirica (although this is not the only mountain of Lipari). This elevated and craggy island (once called "Meligunis") has spectacular beaches and breathtaking ragged coasts whose walls rise precipitously from below the sea. Besides the town of Lipari there are four more villages on the island: Canneto, Acquacalda, Quattropiani and Piano Conte.

LipariLipari due to its mild climate and serene sky in winter presents itself as an ideal resort and in Summer as a sought-after seaside resort and also for pleasure boating. This island is a centre for unforgettable excursions owing to its fascinating countryside. Interesting is the excursion to Quattrocchi where one admires, amongst a variety of colours, as in a dream, picturesque inlets with high slender rocks which reflect in the sea. In the background, as though fading away, rises from the sea the smoking Vulcano, which encloses the enchanting spectacle.

LipariOf great tourist interest is the trip by boat around Lipari. There follow, one after the other, pictorial episodes which form a composition of great beauty and variety: deep grottos, delightful beaches, high shores, ample bays, perforated rocks, small inlets and steep, wild cliffs. Lipari is a Perfect destination to enjoy your yacht charter in Italy.
