The Stromboli Vibo Valentia ferry route connects Aeolian Islands with Italy. Currently there is just the 1 ferry company operating this ferry service, Liberty Lines. The crossing operates up to 2 times each week with sailing durations from around 1 hour 30 minutes.
Stromboli Vibo Valentia sailing durations and frequency may vary from season to season so we’d advise doing a live check to get the most up to date information.
The small island of Stromboli is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea, just off the north coast of Sicily, Italy. The island is one of the Aeolian Islands and is the location of one of three active volcanos in Italy. For visitors to the island there are a number of things to do. You can stroll through the main village on the island and take in the lovely views. Alternatively, Stromboli is the perfect location for a boat ride around the island. From the sea the volcano is clearly visible with its steep black, lava scared, side. Finally, and this is for the more active, and perhaps brave, visitors, you can actually climb the volcano and get a much closer look at the crater and the eruptions.
There are some ferry and hydrofoil services from Sicily and the mainland that stop at Stromboli. Alternatively travellers can change on the island of Lipari for a connecting ferry. Stromboli is north-east of the other Aeolian Islands, and the hydrofoils from Lipari can take as much as 1 hour and 40 minutes. Services from Messina in Sicily take just under 1 hour and 30 minutes.
