lipari and the other aeolian islands – Top Yacht Charter Destination
If you head your yacht northwest from Sicily’s medieval city of Cefalu, you will reach Lipari in a couple of hours. The largest of the Aeolian Islands (a volcanic archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea) offers the most sophisticated infrastructure, dramatically beautiful coastal views, lively outdoor activities, cozy trattorias and fascinating Roman and Neolithic artefacts. The island’s main town is also called Lipari.
There is no shortage of cultural and artistic attractions. The Museo Archeologico Regionale Eoliano offers the best views of Lipari town and is a treasure chest of excavated Roman dwellings and fortifications, and perfectly preserved and comprehensively labelled pots and utensils created by people who lived on the island some 7000 years ago.
The Museo Archeologico Regionale Eoliano is ranked fourth among all European archeological museums for good reason. Its exquisitely preserved collection will offer you a glimpse into an ancient, fascinating past.
