Getting to Filicudi is easy, but it's good to book and check everything before you leave!
We have collected here for you the phone numbers and addresses of the sites of the major shipping companies.
We suggest you always book (especially for cars) and check the timetables and routes available for each company.
Note: If you want to come to Summer Car, you will need to show in writing (on the dashboard) that you have a hotel reservation or a private home for at least one week, and you have a private car park. By municipal decree.
Note: Siremar and Ustica lines have merged into becoming the "company of the islands" and "Liberty lines".
Their sites sometimes go from one to the other, so it's good to know that they are by now the same company.

from Reggio Calabria:
I think from Reggio Calabria the shortest way to get to Filicudi is going to Messina, (the station is close to the port).
You can reach Catania by plane or train.
There is a shuttle service from Catania to the port of Milazzo, which is better to book.
it's a service from Alibrando Company. Autolinee Alibrando - Catania Aereoporto - Milazzo porto
Or you can take the buses to Messina and then for Milazzo.
At the Messina railway station you will find the bus stop Sais (Catania and Catania) and Giuntabus (from and to Milazzo, with port terminus). :
