Lipari is the largest of the islands of the Aeolian archipelago, its inhabitants are called Liparesi or Liparoti.
On this island you find fumaroles and the thermal springs, known since the Greek-Roman age for their therapeutic properties, as well as by the flows of obsidian and pumice, object of a flourishing export already from the first settlements dating back to the Middle Neolithic era.
In 2000 the export of pumice stone ceased at the behest of Unesco, who declared the castings a World Heritage Site.
The disused mining structures are still present on the lunar landscape given by the white pumice mountains.
A lot of colonizers alternated on the island, as witnessed by the excavations inside the Acropolis (the so-called "Castle") and by the finds kept in the museum.
The Island of Lipari is rich in beautiful beaches with emerald-colored bottoms, some of which can only be reached by sea; and on the west side it offers suggestive views to the island of Vulcano and that of Salina.
In the town, in the evening in Piazza di Marina Corta you can admire the evocative atmosphere of the small harbor illuminated by the street lamps, while in the promenade of Corso Vittorio Emanuele you can buy the typical products in the shops.
In addition to Aeolian ceramics, the typical products of Lipari are Malvasia, a very precious sweet dessert wine, and capers, widely used in local cuisine.
