How to reach the Vulcano island

The island of Vulcano is the closest to Sicily and is well connected from Milazzo: the journey by hydrofoil takes about forty-five minutes while that by ship (on which you can also embark a vehicle) takes about an hour and a half.
Between Milazzo and Vulcano there are also several connections with fast boats belonging to private companies.
Vulcano can also be reached by hydrofoil from Reggio Calabria, Messina, Palermo and Naples.
From Naples there is a direct connection by ship twice a week. In the summer season there are also several connections with the cities of the Calabrian coast with boats of private companies.
