Aeolian Islands

by call_me_rhia

The Aeolian Islands are a group of 7 small islands in Italy, precisely off the northern Sicilian coast. They are: Lipari, Vulcano, Stromboli, Panarea, Alicudi, Filicudi and Salina, they are of volcanic origin and they are beautiful! The islands derive their name from Eolus, the lord of the winds, that according to the Homeric tradition, has his kingdom here. Definitely the incredible wonders of nature there. In the Aeolian Islands you can experience all its power.

Lipari

by mircaskirca

The volcanic archipelago of Aeolian Islands consists of seven islands: Lipari, Vulcano, Panarea, Stromboli, Salina, Filicudi and Alicudi. Lipari is the main island and, together with Salina, it's the one that allows the visitor to sample intoxicating wild natural landscapes and an ancient way of life without ever completely leaving behind the comforts and practices of modern life. It is possible to tour the island by car using the asphalt road that runs round the island and the cart tracks in its interior. Lipari is a convenient base from which to take an organized tour by sailing boat, visit the other Aeolian Islands and contemplate the spectacle of Stromboli's volcanic eruptions.

Lipari is the largest of islands. From a historical point of view, Lipari is the most interesting, though summer visitors come mostly for the beaches. The main town, also called Lipari, is a flourishing little port, dominated by impressive castle walls that surround the upper town, or citadel. The most impressive approach from lower to upper town is from Via Garibaldi, from which long steps lead to the 17th-century Cattedrale di San Bartolomeo. next door is the Museo Archeologico Eoliano.

Lower town, mostly along and off the main Corso Vittorio Emanuele, is full of delightful cafes and souvenir shops. There are also a number of great shops selling the whole rang of wines (Lipari is famous for Malvasia), sweets, pates, capres, dried tomatoes, olives and oil. The street is closed to traffic and is packed during he evening passeggiata, when its cafes come into their own.

Both Ustica Lines (www.usticalines.it) and Siremar (www.siremar.com) run hydrofoils to Lipari from Milazzo. They depart almost hourly during the summer months. One-way ticket was 16,80€ (June 2008).

AEOLIAN ISLANDS (ISOLE...

AEOLIAN ISLANDS (ISOLE EOLIE)

For some great adventure head out to this archipelago of seven volcanic islands off northern Sicilia. Inhabited for thousands of years the islands were already written about by Homer in his Odyssey. Today for those who make it there these islands are often a highpoint of their Italian trip. This applies to me and my friends who I went to Italy with as well.
The island closest to Sicilia (and therefore the most easily reachable) is VULCANO, famous for her springs and mud baths. There are three volcanoes on the island and one of them is still active (in theory at least - it hasn't erupted for more than 400 years). Next is LIPARI: This is the largest and most touristy of the islands and is a popular base for exploring the other islands. Continuing by boat you'll then arrive in SALINA which is the most fertile of the island and is a producer of wine. Venturing further you'll soon find yourself in PANAREA, an island that is said to have beautiful beaches and a picturesque landscape. From here you have to cover a relatively larger distance to arrive at the greatest attraction of the archipelago. Yes, this is the island of STROMBOLI with her constantly erupting volcano. That's the island that I visited and if you heard people saying that watching the volcano erupting at night is an unforgettable experience then I can tell you that this is absolutely true. More pictures and information in my Stromboli travelogue.

The remaining two islands are FILICUDI and ALICUDI. They are the most difficult to access and they are really in the middle of nowhere. Ideal to get away from it all...

As mentioned before the only option to get to the Aeolian islands is on the sea. Ferries (navi) and hydrofoils (aliscafi) connect the archipelago to Sicilia's Milazzo. Two companies serve this route: SNAV and SIREMAR. Please note that boat services are suspended if the sea is stormy. This is less likely to occur in summer but checking the forecast before leaving for the islands in winter months is probably a good idea.

When I visited Stromboli I took Siremar's hydrofoil to the island (ITL 31000) and the ferry on the way back to Milazzo (ITL 20000). Both in Milazzo and in Stromboli Siremar's ticket offices are located just beside the port. It cannot be missed.

The photo shows Stromboli erupting - as opposed to most photos on my pages this one was not taken by me
