A dramatic sailing holiday among the volcanic Aeolian Islands off the northeast coast of Sicily.
What a dramatic destination for your sailing holiday! The Aeolian Islands lie 25 miles off the northeast coast of Sicily. This volcanic chain of seven islands is named after the wind god, Aeolus. Some of the islands have a rich history dating back to Ancient Greece, others are sparsely populated.
Today the Aeolian Islands are a favourite destination for Italian celebrities. On your yacht charter holiday be sure to visit Stromboli, the island Dolce & Gabbana call home. As the sun sets, giant flames and molten rock spray from Stromboli’s crater like special effects in a Hollywood blockbuster. Vulcano also has a volcano that belches sulphurous smoke.
This is a popular sailing holiday destination with harbours and anchorages sheltered from the prevailing summer winds. The food is excellent and local people are very hospitable.
