Enjoy Your Time on Lovely Lipari

The largest of the Aeolian Islands, Lipari is lively with bustling streets, a beautiful harbour and charming locals. There’s evidence of settlements dating back to 5,000 BC on Lipari, with visitors able to step back in time and visit Bronze Age ruins. Wander down quaint streets, admire flower covered buildings, and sample some delicious local cuisine.

Volcanic Vulcano

This famous volcanic island has long been charming its visitors and it’s not difficult to see why. The island’s volcano last erupted more than a century ago, but echoes of this momentous event can still be seen today in the rich black sandy beaches and the magnificent volcanic crater.

See Spectacular Salina on Your Yacht Getaway

Covered in a blanket of floral blooms, ancient woodlands, and elegant vineyards, stepping foot onto Salina feels like stepping into a dream world. You’ll feel so far away from everyday reality in the best possible way, leaving you feeling thoroughly relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to face anything.

Stroll Across Stromboli

Home to Europe’s most active volcano, prepare to feel the ground quite literally rumble away beneath your feet as you hike up to the very tip of the volcanic crater. Watch lava bubble away, see the world beneath the waves as you snorkel through crystal-clear waters, before surfacing to witness one of the most beautiful sunsets you’ll ever see.

Small but Perfectly Formed Panarea

This exclusive island lures jet-setters from across the globe to its shores, proving year after year it’s the place to be during the summer season.

Incredible Isola Filicudi

Tranquil, peaceful and unquestionably relaxing, Isola Filicudi is truly heaven on earth. The island’s untouched natural beauty will take your breath away in a way that can’t properly be described in words. Isola Filicudi has to be seen to be believed, it’s really that special.
