Lipari to Reggio. Reggio to Naples.

Appreciate some advise.

My wife and I have organised five weeks touring Sardinia and Sicerly by car finishing at Lipari on 25th September 2014.

We fly home to Australia out of Rome on 30th September.

I do not want to hire a car for these last few days.

Firstly, what is the best way to get from Lapari to Reggio?

Would it be better to spend a few days in Reggio and fly directly to Rome or ...........

If staying in the Reggio area, any recommendations.......or has anyone got a better plan between Lipari and Rome.

Many thanks.

To get to Reggio you would have to go back to Messina/Milazzo and train it over the straits to Reggio. Or you could get the ferry from Lipari to Naples or even the hydrofoil come to that.

You can take a ferry on Ustica Lines directly from Lipari to Port of Reggio. The REG airport is about 8km from the port with regular flights to Rome.

There are two ferries in the summer from Lipari to Reggio, 06:40 or 10:40

Take the Siremar ferry to Naples, and then take the train from Naples to Rome.



Alilauro is not running service from the Aeolians to Naples this year, and the end of September is past the service period for SNAV.

But if heading to Reggio Calabria, take the direct Ustica Lines hydrofoil service, but there would only be one crossing at 7.00 to Reggio Calabria during the time of your travel.

Further from peak season, there would be more to do in Campania then Calabria.

Thanks for all helpful replies.

We have decided to extend our stay at Lipari X one day.

Travel direct from Lipari to Reggio on the ferry.

Stay two nights and then fly to Rome.

Any must does in the Reggio area?

Any suggestion for accommodation?
