A beautiful isle surrounded by wonderful islands: the Sicily could be described with this words. And during your holidays in Sicily you’d like to visit Eolie islands but you don’t know how.

 

From Catania and Messina

Will your holidays be in the eastern side of Sicily? In this case, to reach Milazzo from Catania or Messina (the two principal towns of this side of the isle), these are the ways:

  • From Catania. Take the state road 114 to Messina and, once you’re there, take the A20 motorway and follow the road signs to Milazzo-Eolie islands. The trip takes about an hour and forty minutes.
  • From Messina. Take the A20 motorway and follow the road signs to Milazzo-Eolie islands. The trip takes about forty minutes.

 

From Palermo

To reach Milazzo from Palermo, you just have to take the A20 motorway to Messina and follow the road signs to Milazzo-Eolie islands. The trip takes about two hours and a half by car.

All you just have to do once you arrive in Milazzo is going to the tourist port of the city: everyday (especially during summer) there are a lot of ferries and hydrofoils that will take you to Eolie islands. You’ll find all the information you need at the port.
