The Aeolian are an archipelago of seven different islands situated in the Tyrrhenian Sea, two of them, Stromboli and Vulcano, are of volcanic origins. The legend says the archipelago was named after Aeolus, God of the Wind, who used to live on the islands; he would tell the weather by looking at the smoke coming out of the volcanos.


Lipari is the largest island and more developed compare to its neighbors, presenting all the commodities one should need. Panarea is a renowned spot for the international jet set, with its quiet and calm atmosphere and few small boutiques.

Stromboli and Vulcano are recommended spots for adventures lovers, with their active volcanos and trekking paths. Filicudi and Alicudi are the farthest islands of the archipelago, with few small settlements, perfect for relax and unwind.

Last but not least, Salina, located at the center of the archipelago, is called Green Island because of its lavishing vegetations, and it is home of the famous Malvasia sweet wine. Salina is also known for the famous Massimo Troisi movie, Il Postino (The Postman, 1994), where it was filmed.


Through a panoramic flight, you will fully admire their pumice mountains, black beaches, white caves and some very high sea stack and cliff; not to mention the bluest sea you would ever see. Although each island has its own colors, the stunning natural beauty of the Seven Sisters, so called, is undeniable and breathtaking.
