Alicudi Guide

Forming one of the 8 islands that make up the Aeolian archipelago, the island of Alicudi is the westernmost Aeolian islands, which is a volcanic chain of islands to the north of Sicily. There are around 120 inhabitants on the island which is around 40 km to the west of Lipari, with a land mass of around 5 sq. km. Most of the island's inhabitants live off fishing, with some involved in the small amount of agriculture that takes place on the island. Visitors should note that there are not many facilities on the island which has one restaurant serving whatever fish has been caught or what supplies the ferry brings.

The island is accessible by conventional ferry or hydrofoil from Palermo, Messina, Reggio Calabria and Napoli. The primary port of departure for the Aeolian Islands, and hence also for Alicudi, is the town of Milazzo in Sicily. Ferry services generally operate all year round but are weather dependent. Alicudi is the farthest Aeolian Island from Milazzo and therefore the crossing takes around 3 hours by hydrofoil, with stops at the islands of Vulcano, Lipari, Salina and Filicudi.


Filicudi Guide

The Italian island of Filicudi is one of the Aeolian Islands and lies off the north east coast of Sicily and is popular with scuba divers. A large part of the volcanic island is now designated as the "Natural Reserve of Filicudi Island". The island is made up of several layers of lava with oldest being located in the sea in front of 'Fil di Sciacca' with the largest being 'Fossa delle felci' and the most recent being 'Montagnola'. The island's slopes tend to be steep and rocky with houses located around the "Porto Pecorini" and "Valdichiesa" where the Church of St. Stephen, the island's patron saint, can be found.

To the north of the island is the spectacular “Punta Zucco Grande” (with ten layers of lava) with the eastern side of the island being a less harsh environment. Perhaps the most beautiful landscapes on the island are the “Punta Perciato” and the giant boulders of the “Rupi delle Sciare” ["Cliffs of the ‘Sciara’”], which are steep vertical cliffs overlooking the sea.
