We will be visiting the Aeolians in September. Since we will be travelling with our large suitcase (15kg) we are thinking it might be best to take the ferry, since the hydrofoils have restricted baggage allowance right? Also we have plenty of time, and think it would be nice to stand/sit outside on the deck.
We will be arriving in Milazzo by train at 12.27. Will there be enough time to get to the docks to take the 13.20 Siremar ferry to Lipari? Also, what is the most convenient way to get to the docks? Is it necessary to book the ferry ticket in advance for travelling at the 24th of September? Do you have to pay the booking fee also when buying the ticket at the docks?
