"Day trip to Vulcano from Milazzo"
Booking with Ustica from the UK was simple and efficient. The hydrofoil from Milazzo to Vulcano was quick and reasonably priced. The speed of the journey made the day trip from Palermo to the island possible. A good journey.Read More Read Less
"Fast and efficient "
The Liberty Lines hydrofoil was fast and efficient- did feel a bit cheeky being asked to pay €2 to take on a piece of hand luggage though.Read More Read Less
"Fast ferry, but be sure to get out at your stop in time!"
The ferry was good, fast, punctual enough, spacious and comfortable. But we (and couple others) had "funny" problem. We went to lower deck and when our stop came they announced it adding "stay in your seats", so we stayed. After very short stop (no people were getting out around us) ferry went on to the next stop. Thank God that it was very near and it was the last stop, so we could come back with the same ferry rather fast.Read More Read Less
The Sicilian city of Milazzo is the third largest city in the Province of Messina and has a population of around 32,000. Located around 40 km from Sicily's capital, Milazzo is situated at the base of the peninsular that protrudes into the Tyrrhenian Sea. An important and popular sight in the city is the Castle of Milazzo, the building of which is believed to have been started by the Arabs and then enlarged by the Normans and restored by Frederick II. The castle's walls have round towers on them and also a 14th century Gothic portal. Other interesting sights include the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Rock Church of St Anthony of Padua, the Sanctuary of St Francis of Paola and the Baroque Church of the Holy Crucifix.
From the port of Milazzo ferries depart to the Aeolian Islands and Naples.
The small Italian island of Vulcano lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is roughly 25 km off the coast of the island of Sicily. It is the southernmost of the eight islands that make up the Aeolian group of islands. The island has a number of volcanic centres, including one of four active, non-submarine, volcanoes in Italy. The most recent volcanic activity on the island was at the Gran Cratere at the top of the Fossa Cone, with the cone having grown in the Lentia Caldera in the middle of the island, and has had around 9 major eruptions in the last 6,000 years. However, since the eruption of the Fossa Cone between 1888 and 1890, which deposited around 5 meters of material on the summit, the island has been quiet. For the brave, visitors are able to walk to the crater of a volcano where you can observe smoke coming out of the ground! Apart from the volcanos the island is popular with tourists because of its hot springs which are only a short walk from the island's harbour.
