The archipelago made up of seven splendid islands - Lipari, Panarea, Vulcano, Stromboli, Salina, Alicudi and Filicudi - is surrounded by a clear blue sea, characterized by an unexplored and uncontaminated nature.
The Aeolian Islands represent the ancient Eolia, the mythical abode of Aeolus the god of the winds, of Hephaestus, god of fire, and of the mythical Cyclops. Land of myths and legends, where the hero Ulysses landed.
Nowadays, the islands are one of the 54 Italian sites putted by UNESCO in the World Heritage List in the section dedicated to the naturalistic heritage. The Aeolian are wonderful islands, in a natural environment rich in flora and fauna with amazing beaches, coves, caves, inlets, stacks, and with a great variety and richness of sea bottoms.
Visiting them is a unique experience.
Salina is located in the centre of the Aeolian Archipelago and it is the second island in terms of size, after Lipari. It enjoys of a favourable position: it is the greenest and water-rich island, it is much loved by long-term tourists because it manages to offer the right mix of relaxation, comfort and social life.
Panarea, the red carpet of the Aeolian Islands, is among the most popular destinations in world tourism.
Its beaches and clear waters are ideal for a holiday immersed in nature, but the island with the setting of the sun turns into the glamorous living room with its aperitifs by the sea, its nightclubs and its famous discos.
Stromboli is the northernmost island of the entire archipelago and it is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The almost total absence of roads certainly makes it one of the wildest islands. On the southern coast rises an isolated village reachable only by sea, Ginostra, while at 1.6 km from Stromboli stands a small islet, Strombolicchio, characterized by the presence of a lighthouse only.
Vulcano is one of the smallest Aeolian islands: a small jewel of the Mediterranean Sea in an authentic context, which expresses a perfect balance between nature and human settlement.
The volcanic phenomena are very present: from the jets of steam that emerge from the terrestrial surfaces, to the submarine and thermal ones.
Alicudi is the westernmost island of the Archipelago and it has an area of only 5 square Kilometres.
It is the most unspoiled: there are no roads so you can move on foot or on mules.
It is a magical island to find relaxation and peace in direct contact with nature
Filicudi is the geologically oldest island of the Archipelago.
It is perfect for nature lovers and can be easily visited on foot, through the ancient mule tracks.
