Lipari is the largest of Aeolian Islands in Tyrrhenian Sea off Sicily's northern coast, southern Italy. Lipari Island is also the name of island's main town. In 2009 its population was 11,230 on a total area of 37 km2 (14 ml2). Most of the population of Lipari is concentrated in the 3 towns on the island. However, during the May-September tourist season, the population may total up to 20,000 people.
An interesting fact is that during the 1930s–1940s, the island was used for confinement of political prisoners including: Carlo Rosselli, Curzio Malaparte, Edda Mussolini, Emilio Lussu and Giuseppe Ghetti.
The archaeological museum in Lipari covers Aeolian Islands' human history from prehistoric to classical times, as well as marine history, vulcanology, and paleontology of western Mediterranean.
On July 25, 2013 Lipari's mayor issued an ordinance that banned the wearing of "bikinis, thongs or other swimming costumes in the town centre" to be punished with a 500 euros fine (equivalent to US$700 in 2014).
The port of Lipari is quite small but busy. The eastern slopes are cultivated and cruisers may also climb the narrow medieval streets to 16th century Spanish fortress, then discover a beach with the finest sand.
