Sicily is a unique and very special island, a world of its own, and navigating around its islands is both fascinating experience and chance to discover the natural world, tradition and culture. The Aeolian Islands, Alicudi, Filicudi, Salina, Stromboli, Panarea, Lipari and Vulcano, are seven ‘jewels’ each with their own distinguishing features and individual characteristics.
Stromboli towers over them all with its active volcano and imposing presence. The islands do have one thing in common and that is the Aeolian cuisine that you’ll be able to enjoy in some truly remarkable settings. One opportunity that should not be missed is the walking trip up the Stromboli volcano where, with the help of a local guide, you’ll enjoy one of the most amazing natural panoramas nature has to offer. Don’t forget to bring your trekking shoes!
Lipari is known for its famous pumice-stone caves, Vulcano for its breath–taking views and sunsets. Salina is perhaps the most elegant of the islands, Panarea the chic and fashionable spot, Alicudi and Filicudi, more challenging to get to know but well worth the effort.
No matter which of the islands you explore, and whether you find yourself in the house of a local fisherman, a cozy restaurant, or simply on board with us, Aeolian cuisine will make your cruise even more special.
