Aeolian Islands

Aeolian Islands

Often overlooked by holidaymakers to Sicily, the seven Aeolian Islands are the ultimate away-from-it-all destination, a chance to step back, breathe deeply and just enjoy your surroundings. The islands’ volcanic origins have produced dramatic views, lush nature reserves and hot mud pools but top attraction for water-babies is the swimming and diving.

With the best views of the islands obtained from the sea, chartering a boat for a spot of island hopping is the ultimate excursion and anyone staying on Salina will want to visit the bay of Pollara, the opening location in the film Il Postino.

Combine a stay on the Aeolian Islands with a stay in chic Taormina or hop over on a hydrofoil from Palermo or Naples.
