Lipari in October - ferry, getting around, tours, weather

Hi,

We're looking to go from Milazzo to Lipari end of October, probably 27th to 30th or 31st October. Mainly we are interested in nature, doing some hiking in Lipari and the surrounding islands as a day trip. My questions:

1. Some people say that the weather is really bad at that time, we should pick another season, because ferries are often cancelled. Is that true?

2. Is it possible to ferry a car then in October? (even if it's less than a week)

3. Do we need to prebook the ferry or hydrofoil at that time of the year?

4. Do we need to prebook any boat tours/excursions to other islands at that time of the year?

Thanks a lot for your help!

1. Re: Lipari in October - ferry, getting around, tours, weather

Ferries are more reliable than hydrofoils at that time of year, so you will be able to take the car. But the end of October is out of season, and many trips/tours will have shut up shop for the winter. However, the weather is unpredictable and even ferries may be cancelled if the seas are too rough. island hopping is also weather dependent.
