These islands have some of the most adventurous and unique travel experiences anywhere in Europe. The Aeolian Islands is an island paradise offering stunning swimming, boating, diving and of course volcano watching!

You must already be in Sicily to reach the islands. This tour can be added to any existing Sicily trip as an extension to the islands for a few days.

The islands are easily reachable from the Catania airport or Taormina with easy connections to mainland Italy. The average stay in the islands is just 3 days so you can make the Aeolian Islands an extension to any trip.

Day 1: Arrival to the Island

The islands are easily reachable from the Catania airport or Taormina with easy connections to mainland Italy. The average stay in the islands is just 3 days so you can make the Aeolian Islands an extension to any trip.

The start of the tour, you will catch a boat to Salina, which is the second- largest island of the volcanic archipelago it belongs to. Boat tickets will be provided and the trip is just over an hour long.

We can arrange arrival to the port on the mainland from Palermo, Catania or directly from one of the airports on the island.

Floating in the turquoise Tyrrhenian Sea, Salina is an area of incredible natural beauty and has many shops, cafes and restaurants as well as its lovely beaches and bays. You will spend the night on this island after choosing where to have dinner as the sun sets.

Once you arrive, our local driver will pick you up at the port and bring you to your lovely hotel on the island. You will check in, relax and take it all in.. welcome to the Aeolian Islands!

The Aeolian Islands tour can be designed and a multi or single day experience! You can customize it!

Italy4Real can provide flights, transportation and great boutique hotels throughout Sicily and the Aeolian Islands.

Day 2: Exploring the island from sea or land

Once on the island you can enjoy the white-washed buildings in quaint villages; olive trees for as far as the eye can see and amazing flowering plants. The area consists of the islands of Lipari, Panarea, Salina, Filicudi, Stromboli and Vulcano.

We can arrange a lovely boat tour around the area so you can experience the beauty of the islands from a water view. On land, we can arrange a lovely winery visit with lunch so you can taste the difference volcanic soil makes to the flavors of the wines and foods grown on the island.

Day 3: Relax and enjoy

Today is a day to chill. Just relax and take it all in. Sit by the pool, sleep in, stroll, eat and drink.. the things that make life worth living.

Some of the additional things you can do during your time on the island are…

  • Mud Baths – People travel from around the world to soak in the volcanic mud
  • Visit an active volcano – Visit the island of Volcano and see the mountain puffing smoke and ash!

This program is completely customizable, so you can add days to make it a longer trip which would include other parts of Sicily.

You can go for just the day from Taormina or if you choose to stay overnight (which we highly recommend) then we can arrange for a lovely stay at one of our personally selected boutique hotels and inns on the island; and we will organize all of the ground, boat and air transportation you will need to get to the Aeolian Islands.

The Aeolian’s are becoming the secret hot spot for the celebrity set who prefer a low key environment. The islands are a combination of rustic beauty and natures fury. The islands offer you a remote paradise where you can relax, visit several of the volcanic islands such as Lipari, Vulcano, Panarea and Stromboli just to name a few. The islands have small villages and a few lovely hotels and apartments which give you a base to explore from.
