Lipari, Aeolian Islands, Italy

Jun 25, 2019 - Sea Cloud

After two days of early disembarkation, our morning was spent quite leisurely, cruising between the different Aeolian Islands and listening to staff presentations. After lunch, we headed ashore to Lipari, the main and largest of the islands, for a sightseeing bus tour and a visit to the Archaeological Museum to see one of Europe's finest collections of ancient finds.
