Aeolian Islands

You'll love this tour if you like:

  • Island hopping 
  • Active volcanoes - Stromboli can be spectacular 
  • Atmospheric, family-run hotel with wonderful sea views from the terrace restaurant
  • Charming old-fashioned atmosphere 
  • Lovely Mediterranean climate

The seven Aeolian islands off the north coast of Sicily comprise an area of 1,216km squared and make up one of the most traditional regions of Italy, with a pace and way of life little altered for centuries. Unsurprisingly it was chosen as the location of the charming film Il Postino. The Aeolian archipelago is of important volcanic origin having fascinated volcanologists and tourists alike for years. The island of Stromboli contains one of the most active volcanoes in the world and presents an almost-daily show of red hot rocks. The archipelago's importance is evident from the life that has existed on the island since the Neolithic age, while approximately 900 plant species have been recorded on the islands, including four endemic species. 

The largest island of this UNESCO World Heritage Site is Lipari, and this is where you will be based. You will stay at the Rocce Azzurre Hotel, which commands a panoramic position and a sea-view terrace restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean, and is walking distance from the town centre and main harbour. The hotel boasts free Wi-Fi and a private sun deck that practically floats on the sea, plus there is also a public beach next to the hotel. 

Your days are free to either explore independently or join one of the reasonably priced local tours, which our representative can arrange for you. This is a fasinating, unique region of Italy, just waiting to be discovered.
