There are two solutions to better know Lipari, which is rich in history, traditions, art and curiosities.
At a glance! Lipari Up&Down
During this guided walking tour from Marina Lunga to Marina Corta through the acropolis you can admire the wonderful narrow streets of the island. Then, go up to the so-called castle, walking on the acropolis and see the archaeological findings. So, you’ll retrace 6000 years of history. Moreover, visit the Cathedral of Saint Bartholomew with the Norman cloister and understand the deep devotion of local people to their patron saint.

Explore the museum! Guided visit to the Archaeological Museum of Lipari
The second choice is a guided visit to the Archaeological Museum Luigi Bernabò Brea. So, you can better know the thousand-year old history of Lipari. The richness of the ancient Lipàra can be recognized in the collection exhibited in the several museum’s rooms: from undersea archaeology to grave goods, which show the daily routine and the afterworld, then the unique collection of theatrical masks.
