We start from "il Castello", the Greek acropolis surrounded by walls, known as "A citati." Within the complex we find the Cathedral of St. Bartolomeo, the Archaeological Park (do not miss the incredible view from the terrace) and the Aeolian Museum, one of the most important in the Mediterranean. The museum is divided into sections relating the history of the islands, it has the largest collection in the world of theatrical masks. Among the rooms also have a dedicated to obsidian, the famous natural glass erupted from volcanoes, and in Lipari, just by Monte Pelato seven thousand years ago. At the entrance of each room there are two explanatory panels: one with some basic facts and another more detailed, for a thorough visit.
Along Via Garibaldi leads to Marina Corta square, one of the most beautiful squares and lively island; the last night of the feast of St. Bartolomeo (August 24) is illuminated by the light of the fireworks that leave directly from the sea.
After the Marina Corta is the turn of Marina Lunga, Via Francesco Crispi, a promenade that connects the Lipari town with the Canneto town.
We advise you to get lost in the lanes, browse the local craft shops and eat you a nice granita! If you feel like a spritz go straight to the center of the liparota nightlife, "il Corso", Corso Vittorio Emanuele.
