DESCRIPTION OF TOUR

Lipari sights and sweets tour

Learn about the history of this Aeolian Island while tasting some of its specialties.

We’ll stroll down the narrow streets around Marina Corta, Lipari’s little fishing port, to reach the fortified citadel, commonly known as the Castle.

Finally, we will see the major monuments in town, such as the Cathedral, dedicated to St. Bartholomew, patron saint of the archipelago, and the outstanding Archaeological Museum of Lipari.

We’ll admire from above the little harbor of Marina Corta the exclusive heart of the island and the stunning panoramas all around us.

Let me also invite you to do what I really enjoy the most: sit on a terrace, taste the traditional biscuits and relax!

We will have a memorable experience in a small café to taste the Malvasia, our local sweet wine, and the delicious biscuits made with sesame seeds.

If you prefer, you can also enjoy a cannolo, a tube-shaped pastry shell stuffed with a sweetened filling of whipped ricotta cheese.
