The Italian islands have been enticing travellers to their shores for centuries. Here are a few reasons why we’re collectively unable to resist the allure of this very special part of the world.

Tuck in to unique Italian dishes - Unleash your inner foodie

For Foodies

You don’t need us to tell you that Italian cuisine is impeccable. You’ll find a selection of wonderful cafés, restaurants and tavernas throughout your sailing getaway, each with its own set of specialities. The island of Salina is a particular highlight for foodies. Spend your afternoon on a tour of an award-winning vineyard before making your way back to town to enjoy a delicious evening meal. Ask for a table with views across to the island of Stromboli to see the volcano smouldering in the distance.

For Relaxation Seekers

Treat your skin to a restorative sulphur-rich mud bath on the island of Vulcano, marvel at the untouched natural beauty of Isola Filicudi, sit back and experience pure tranquillity in Panarea’s Carla Junco, and explore bubbling sea springs, secret beaches and tucked away coves in Lisca Bianca. Whatever your idea of uninterrupted relaxation looks like, the Italian islands are certain to deliver.

For Adventurers

From hiking to the tip of Stromboli’s crater to soak in incredible views from the top and feel the ground gently rumbling underfoot, to snorkelling the region’s sparkling waters, kayaking rugged coastlines, cycling through Salina’s wildflower meadows and fruit tree groves, and paddle boarding through some of the most incredible natural landscapes, you’ll have the opportunity to indulge your adventurous spirit on your Italian island getaway.

For Sailing Getaway Sightseers

Isola Filicudi’s spectacular walking paths offer unmatched panoramic vistas over untouched sea grottos, the vast blue ocean, and the island’s untamed landscape. Similarly, the walk up to Vulcano’s highest peak rewards every sightseer with stunning views over its majestic lunar landscape. Additionally, there are an array of charming ports and villages to explore, each with intriguing winding streets, atmospheric churches and beautiful boutiques. Celebrate the best of Italy in this UNESCO-listed archipelago that’s sure to capture your heart.
