Aeolian Islands ferry Ports, ferry companies and routes

Aeolian Islands ferry is the only way to reach this wonderful archipelago off the coast of Sicily, only a few miles from the port of Milazzo.
A popular tourist destination during the summertime, the Aeolian Islands welcome thousands of tourists each year, who reach their destination aboard hydrofoils.
Whether seeking relaxation on the tranquil beaches, exploring ancient ruins or hiking to panoramic viewpoints, the Aeolian Islands offer a diverse range of experiences. Each island has its own allure, from the lively atmosphere of Lipari to the romantic ambiance of Salina.
The seven islands of the Aeolian archipelago are Lipari, Vulcano, Panarea, Stromboli, Alicudi, Filicudi and Salina and they can be reached only by sea. Remember that Salina and Stomboli island both have two ports: Salina Santa Marina and Salina Rinella for the first one, Ginostra and Stromboli port for the second island.

The ferry companies
All shipping companies travelling to the Aeolian Islands are featured on MrFerry, a safe and reliable retailer that always guarantees the best price available on the market and real-time availability.
Most departures take place from the port of Naples, which is connected to the ports of Lipari, Panarea, Salina S.Marina, Stromboli and Vulcano by the shipping companies SNAV and Alilauro.
Siremar, which is the only shipping company to offer ferry service and therefore used for vehicle transport, connects the port of Naples to the port of Ginostra on the western side of the island of Stromboli and departures from the port of Milazzo to the other islands, mainly operating on the Milazzo Lipari route.
Finally, the Liberty Lines company, covers all fast connections from Milazzo, Vibo Valentia, Reggio Calabria and Palermo to all the Aeolian islands.
All rides are mainly active in the summer period, when demand increases exponentially. In the winter period, the service remains active to provide a connection to Sicily for the population living on the Aeolian Islands, with connections mainly from the port of Milazzo.
One of the most popular connections of the Aeolian Islands ferries, as it is more frequent throughout the day and active all year round, is the Milazzo Lipari route, which by hydrofoil has a duration of 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Departures from Naples have the longest crossing duration, ranging from a minimum time of 10 hours for the Naples Stromboli route to a maximum duration of about 14 hours and 30 minutes for the Naples Vulcano. The fastest connections are those made by hydrofoil departing from the port of Milazzo.
