Sailing Aeolian Islands
Situated just 25 miles north of Sicily, Aeolian Islands are noted for their diversity, active volcanoes, black sand beaches, famous filming locations and Malvasia wine.
Many ports in Sicily, Calabria, and Campania regions offer skippered and bareboat yachts for charter to the Aeolian Islands. Sail to Stromboli and climb the active Stromboli volcano or visit Vulcano and soak in its mud baths. Charter a catamaran and visit Lipari, an Aeolian island renowned for its rich history. If you want to hang out with the rich and the famous, you absolutely must drop an anchor in Panarea. For gourmets seeking a quiet sailing holiday, Salina is a great choice. On the other hand, adventurers and experienced mariners should set their compass to inaccessible Alicudi and Filicudi.
The Aeolian Islands are a paradise for island hoppers and a hot sailing destination in Italy.
