Sicily Holiday on Sail Boat

Itineraries



  AEOLIAN ISLANDS:

Seven little volcanic islands surrounded by a warm and deep sea in an out-of-time atmosphere recalling a history of sea-adventures going back 5000 years: that's how long man's presence on these islands dates back. Holiday planning offers the chance of an extraordinary range of ideas in a natural and largely untouched environment: the main island Lipari
, the green landscapes of Salina, the wild nature of Alicudi and Filicudi, the sophisticated Panarea and the charming Vulcano and Stromboli.
Below we propose two similar sailing itineraries with two relatives  starting points from Sicily or from Calabry.

LIPARI
The main island, certainly the richest in history, inhabited since the Palaeolithic Age. The most striking feature of the ancient
remains is certainly the castle,dating back to the VI century and situated on the ancient acropolis. Today, the castle houses
the "Aeolian Archeological Museum" which relates the History of the Islands from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages.
Characteristic of the Island are: the pumice-stone quarries of Porticello,which render the beach and surrounding waters a
peculiar white colour; the Faraglioni to the south off Vulcano; the lively square of Marina Corta; Sottomonastero, or
Marina Lunga, a landing place with a quay reserved for boats in transit.
STROMBOLI
It has a typical volcano shape, and the spectacle it offers is unique. At night, sailing in front of Stromboli,you can see the
so-called "Sciara di fuoco" characterized by the free fall of fire lapillus in the sea; this "fire show" is simply breathtaking.
A sight worth seeing!
VULCANO
The island of thermal springs and mud-bathing, a destination of sport enthusiasts who can appreciate and enjoy the beauty
of its waters together with that of the volcano, from which there are breathtaking sights, for example, the view of the
surrounding islands and the isthmus connecting Vulcano to Vulcanello. The island offers a variety of sceneries but access
to the most beautiful spots are to be reached by sea: La Grotta del Cavallo, the pool of Venere, the beaches
to the South and the numerous caves to the West.
SALINA
This Island with its steep rugged coastline is the most unspoilt of the Islands. It is formed by two extinct volcanoes:
Monte Fossa delle Felci and "Monte dei Porri" which give it an aspect for which the ancient name of Island was derived:
"Dydime" or rather twins. Salina is named after the salt-works to the South-east, beyond  cape "Lingua".
The island is formed of numerous small natural bays, among which, Pollara, with its beaches and deserted fishermen's
cottages,very picturesque at sunset; Rinella with its black-coloured grottos , which has been transformed into a small port.
The very first tourist port of the Aeolian Islands was realized at  Santa Marina Salina.


PANAREA

Limpid waters, craggy cliffs and fascinating seabeds make Panarea a much sought after place for sub aquatic
sports. Young and lively tourists are attracted not only by the beauty of Panarea but by the vivacious nightlife.
By day one can visit the Bronze Age village located on the promontory of cape Milazzese where the cliffs form
a splendid calanque: Cala Junco, which is one of the most beautiful places of all the Islands.
FILICUDI
Beautiful island! In the past it was called Phenicusa that means reach of brackens. It's oval-shape and in the
south-east side it extends to Capo Graziano headland, a little peninsula linked to the main Filicudi part by a
part of land. The inhabitants (called "Filicudari") are scattered in the three main parts of the island: Filicudi
Porto, Valle Chiesa and Pecorini a Mare. There you can also find the very important and characteristic
85-metre rock,the so-called "La canna", which rises in the middle of the sea.
Its landscape and its breathtaking sunset seen from "Punta Stimpagnato" are also wonderful... what a mystical
experience!
ALICUDI
A real hermitage of calm and peace... the only means of transport you can find there is a mule!
In the past it was called Ericusa because it is reach of heathers in each part of its promenades.
Its 140 inhabitants live there, fishing and working the land, in the only centre of the island, near
the harbour. It is mainly formed by the extinct volcano of Montagnola, dating back about 150,000
years ago.
