Low season accomodations (mid-Nov)?

by coral04

Hi,

I am traveling to Sicily and the Aeolian Islands this mid-November and have been having trouble finding accomodations on Stromboli.

Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I hate to be a party-pooper but you might also want to check out how you're getting to the Aeolian Islands. The reason many hotels are closed is due to the season... as winter approaches, the seas get rough, and ferry services are also severely reduced.

Hi SierraLyndon,

Thanks for warning me! I have been having a sinking feeling about this part of our trip - noticed that some hydrofoils may not be running, but found a timetable for N.G.I. that seems to have daily service up to Lipari but only reaches Stromboli 2x a week between Oct-Dec...do you think that these timetables are pretty suspect (i.e., even though scheduled, will likely not run)?

Our new (as of this morning!) plan, should the islands just not work out, is to spend our week exploring Sicily - which I think is as exciting, but just started thinking about a possible itinerary. Any recommendations? =) We'll be travelling by rail and by bus (no car) and would love a mix of hiking, lazing about, and of course, beautiful scenery and delicious food!

Thanks!

Yes, the ferry companies have the right to cancel their runs even a few hours before the scheduled trips depending on weather conditions. That's just the way it is. I'd strongly advise a Plan B... about sticking just on Sicily. You don't want your holiday to hinge on something so risky (of course now having said that, the weather in mid-November will now be the most sunny on record!!).

I don't know Sicily well, so you'd best go through all VT members pages on Sicily to get some ideas. I was there in August but on the western coast covering Cefalù to Palermo to Trapani and down to Agrigento. We travelled by car and found it the most convenient thing to do.

Good luck!

Don't worry about the rest of Sicily! There are plenty of buses:

Since the tourist season is over, even Taormina will be quiet but there's always something there and it IS gorgeous. Otherwise, cities are a sure bet for life. Try Siracusa with its harbour front bars on Ortygia. Agrigento is also lovely and the southern coast will be the warmest this time of year as it is closest to Africa.

stromboli,a film made by rossellini with ingrid b.

by cbeaujean

pictures lovers and ingrid bergman's fans have to do the pilgrimage to the pink house where ingrid felt madly in love with rossellini,when making "stromboli terra di dio" during spring of 1949.
ingrid berghman ,in this picture,is simply sublime (only natural,was the beginning of their relation...)

where?

Stromboli is one of the aeolian islands, like Lipari or the most exclusive Panarea, which are situated in the Thyrrhenian sea. The archipelago is volcanic - actually Stromboli is still eruptive, so be careful :)- and part of Sicily. Stromboli can be reached by ferry for example from Milazzo in Sicily, from Napoli or from Tropea in Calabria.
The type of the buildings on the island reminded me of Greece, there were a lot of little white houses with blue window frames like I saw on the Cyclades.
Unfortunately on the trip from Tropea to Stromboli I experienced the worst time I ever had on a boat, the condition of the sea was terrible and consequently many people got seasick. The way back was rather pleasant though, and seeing the the volcano during sundown compensated all my suffering on the journey there.
To prepare yourself for your trip to Stromboli you could watch Roberto Rossellini`s film "Stromboli" with Ingrid Bergmann :).

As soon as you put your feet on the island of Stromboli, a sign reminds you to climb the volcano only with a guide. And doing a tour to the volcano is the main thing you can do there, the island is rather small. Of course it is nice to go for a stroll through the narrow streets and try some sicilian sweets as well. The beaches I saw were small with- due to the emission of Lava- of course black sand.

Stromboli

You really would not visit the island of Stromboli without making the effort to see the amazing sight of the live volcano erupting at night. The island has a number of tourist guides willing to take your money and walk you up the hill but in reality it is an easy walk if you have a torch. If you don’t they can be hired from the camping supply shop in the square near the church. After you have marveled at the eruptions ever fifteen minutes or so head back down to the foot of the volcano where you can dine at the pizza restaurant and continue to watch the show

STROMBOLI

by mel_bee

Stromboli has to be one of my favourite locations in Europe!! It looks so tropical with colourful flowers and palm trees that its hard to believe you aren't in South America. Its only a small island with a large active volcano in the centre but its great for the beaches and getting away from it all. The streets are so narrow that only bikes and golf cart type cars can drive down them and there are no streetlights at night but this makes the errupting volcano against the backdrop of stars even more magicial. Stromoboli is definitely the jewel of Europe!
