Islands of untouched nature, the Aeolian Islands are a World Heritage Site. Included in the World Heritage list in the naturalistic section, they are one of the pearls of the Mediterranean Sea.

It is an archipelago of volcanic origin consisting of seven islands of rare beauty characterized by a wild nature and a clear and turquoise sea.

The strong contrast between the volcanic rocks and the blue of the sea makes the view of these islands a sight to behold at least once in a lifetime!

The two still active volcanoes, Stromboli and Vulcano, are popular with tourists for their majestic beauty.

Vulcano and Stromboli, two islands characterized by the presence of the volcano

Both characterized by a strong volcanic component, the islands of Stromboli and Vulcano are an experience to be lived.

Vulcano, famous for its fumaroles, jets of steam visible both on the surface and on the seabed, opens around two volcanic cones: the volcano della Fossa and the Vulcanello. These are volcanoes considered to be still active, although the last documented eruption dates back to 1888.

Stromboli is home to the most active European volcano, which frequently produces spectacular eruptions to be admired: spectacular is the Sciara del Fuoco, a lava flow that reaches the sea. But the island is not just the Volcano, to visit absolutely are Borgo San Vincenzo, with its white houses and Ginostra, to be reached via a mule track. The beauty of these islands is universally recognized and the panorama that can be enjoyed from their coasts is certainly one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.

The rest of the archipelago, made up of five other islands, is also a perfect destination for vacationers, especially for sailors. These islands have a different characterization than Stromboli and Vulcano, and each has its own personality that makes it special.

The whole archipelago is breathtakingly beautiful and is an ideal place to plan a vacation, especially on a sailing boat!
