Aeolian Islands Tourism

The Aeolian Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands, located northeast of Sicily, near the coast. The seven main islands are Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Stromboli, Filicudi, Alicudi and Panarea. Lipari is the capital of the Aeolian Islands and it is the same name the largest city. Divided between the islands around 13,000, an amount that increases significantly in tourist seasons. In fact, tourism is the most important economic activity of the Aeolian. A good option to enjoy these wonderful islands can be to find one of the beautiful homes that are rented there .

The small size of these islands allows us to cross safely with these little bikes, and discourages the use of the car, a nuisance to park and cross the narrow streets of the villages. Several dive centers allow us to explore the sea bottom full of life. Dives are conducted in different parts of the islands. To go from one island to there are several other options. If the weather is good and the sea is calm, you can rent small boats to travel along all the islands on your own. This way you can visit the islands you want to tie the boat in the port, or stop and swim in the more inaccessible coves.

There are also organized tours on larger ships if we do not dare with our own boat, or if the sea is something moved. Finally we can take the ferries that cross the island regularly. Good food is another attraction of this place: fish, pizzas and a specialty of the area. It is best to try on the legendary a OEDA Alfredoa in Lingua (Salina). They are also typical of the area’s natural slush. You can find a multitude of flavors (berries, pineapple, kiwi, coffee, nuts, etc. ..).
