Italy Itinerary

yacht getaways italy explorer itinerary portorosa

Perfectly placed to start and finish your Aeolian adventure, you can easily explore mainland Sicily from here. From glorious Mount Etna to historic and picturesque Palermo, make the most of your trip to the Aeolian with an extended stay on the largest island in the Mediterranean.

yacht getaways italy explorer itinerary vulcano

Vulcano

The first of two active volcanoes we encounter on this trip, Vulcano is well known for its sulphur rich mud baths and smoking fumaroles. The lunar landscape echoes the last eruption in 1890, with soft black sand beaches dotted around the shore. Walk up to the main crater and witness the astonishing views to the sea.

Isola Filicudi

The most isolated of the islands, Filicudi is known for its wild, natural beauty and untouched sea grottos. Now extinct, this was the first of the Aeolian volcanoes to emerge from the sea and offers panoramic walking paths. The rocky shores are a beachcomber’s dream and the top spot to spend the evening.

Salina

Instantly recognisable by its twin peaks, Salina is a green, fertile island that is famous for the production of the local sweet wine Malvasia. Wind your way around the lush landscape on a scooter to sample the local vintage, before heading back to town for a signature Italian treat, refreshing granita. At sunset you can admire the view towards smouldering Stromboli in the distance.

Stromboli

Early morning we make our way to the most active volcano in Europe. Pack your hiking shoes to join a tour to the tip of the crater, the gentle rumbling beneath your feet hinting at what lies beneath. Sunset invites the full spectacle, with bursts of lava on show! For the less adventurous, secluded sandy beaches and crystal clear waters are ideal for snorkelling.

yacht getaways italy explorer itinerary panarea

Panarea

The most beautiful of the Aeolian Islands, Panarea impresses on every level. Popular amongst the yachting elite, expect delicious seafood, boutique shops and the perfect setting for sunset cocktails. A short ride away is Cala Junco, a secluded bay ideally situated for a tranquil afternoon, and nearby Lisca Bianca’s multi coloured rocky shores offer hidden coves and bubbling sea springs.

Lipari

A trip around the island by scooter lets you explore the white washed villages and admire the breath-taking views of the other islands. Cast a last glimpse at the smouldering peaks of this UNESCO Heritage listed archipelago and celebrate the best of Italy.
