I appreciate that they are a donation based organization and restoring the history and story of this area. If you are in the area go, but otherwise can skip. Not enough intersting stuff

Island of Lipari is small, with beautiful passionate people. The Greek baths of San Calogero are being restored by volunteers, and there is a small art gallery. Baths are around 3000 years old, and fascinating. Admission is free, but remember to donate a few Euros....More

A very good guide took us around and showed us one of the only remaining saunas from Roman times. The pools are still 70c. Worth a detour.
