The Aeolian Islands are a volcanic archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea north of Sicily. The largest island is Lipari, and tourism marketing often names the entire archipelago the Lipari Islands because of the ease of pronouncing Lipari compared to Aeolian. The other islands include Vulcano, Salina, Stromboli, Filicudi, Alicudi, Panarea and Basiluzzo.
This isle is the largest of the Aeolian Islands, 36,7 sq km. Its volcanic nature is revealed by its dominating colours: the white of the pumice-stones and the black of the obsidian. The island has also spectacular beaches and breathtaking ragged coasts whose walls rise precipitously from below the sea. Formerly volcanic, Lipari is now the chief source of pumice-stone that gives to the sea a peculiar colour that goes from white to light blue, actually, the most famous beach is called “Spiagge Bianche” (White Beaches)
The Greek wind god Aeolus was said to have lived on this island, then called Hierà. The name for the entire Aeolian Island chain descended from the mythical residence of Aeolus. The Roman name for the island Vulcano has contributed the word for volcano in most modern European languages.
The Romans believed that Vulcano was the chimney to the god Vulcanus's workshop.
a land of lava and fumaroles, yellow sulphur rocks and black sands all worth a visit. There are three volcanoes on the island: the first extinguished since the prehistoric age; the second is Vulcanello (123 metres high and dormant since 183 B.C.); the last is “Gran Catere” (only the fumaroles are still active). The nicest beaches are Porto Ponente and Porto Levante and Spiaggia dell’Asino (Gelso).
Salina has a total surface area of 27 km². Salina is the most fertile of the Aeolian isles, and grapes grown on Salina are used to make Malvasia wine. This centrally located isle, lying two miles from Lipari, is the only Aeolian island (out of seven) covered with blooming vegetation.
The Aeolian island is highly admired by élite tourism. The main village, Contrada San Pietro, consists of a group of white houses clustered along the eastern side of the island.
Panarea has scenic beaches, which offer views across the sea to the volcano-island of Stromboli; you can see ash and steam clouds from the volcano's frequent, small eruptions. Very intresting to visit the small junco bay.
Stromboli is the most spectacular of the islands, as it's the only one that is currently volcanically active. Stromboli town has pretty narrow streets and, further from the centre, beautiful black sand beaches in rocky coves. The must-see attraction is the night-time climb up to the crater. The going is tough (you will be climbing approximately 850m) but you will see an amazing sunset and the eruptions are incredible. Stromboli is exactly a 924 metre high lava mountain (Serra Vancori) which drops abruptly down to 2000 metres below sea-level and is Europe's biggest active volcano after Etna. During the night, the glittering "sciara del fuoco” (the red-hot flow descending towards the sea) can be seen from the boats and from Panarea. On the western side of the island, named by local inhabitans "Pertuso", there's the village of Ginostra, characterized by the smallest harbour of the world... just one boat at a time can tie up! From San Vincenzo to Piscità it's a succession of extraordinary coves and beautiful black sand beaches.
This ideal holiday island, light-years away from traffic and noise has two villages lying on a small peninsula stretching out towards the south: Filicudi Porto and Pecorini a Mare. A boat tour is highly recommended to “La Grotta del Bue Marino”, a cave which once used to house monk seals and a legend says that a monster had its refuge.
Alicudi This island 5.2 sq km, is an extinct volcano that rises out of the sea to reach the summit of Monte Filo dell'Arpa. It is not part of the mass tourism circuit and the only landing area is near the Scoglio della Palomba. The boat tour along the 4 kilometres of the island's coast slowly exposes enchanting spots and peculiar red and black rocks separating the little beaches from each other. The stair-shaped eastern side is really peculiar. You can see the church of San Bartolomeo rising above the houses of Alicudi and offering a wide panorama
