How to get to Salina?
To reach this wonderful piece of paradise, the closest airports are Catania, Palermo, and Naples. Catania Fontanarossa (CTA) is the closest and suggested airport. From Catania, you will need to take a bus (approx 1,5hours), and finally, a hydrofoil /Aliscafo (approx 1,5 hours). To ensure you catch the last departing boat to Salina, the arrival time of your flight should not be later than 3 pm. On your day of departure, please make sure to book your flight after 11 am to ensure enough time to get off the island and reach the airport. If you manage to depart in the afternoon, you will have a more comfortable commute.
The best port from where to depart is Milazzo, as it offers many options to the island.

From May till September there are mini/cruises tours
We suggest getting out of the mini cruise at the first island, Vulcano, and then catch the hydrofoil from Vulcano to Salina.
While for the return is better to reach Stromboli via hydrofoil and then join the mini-cruise departing from there in the evening.
