Suggested 1-week itinerary from Sant'Agata
DAY 1 : Embark at Sant’Agata di Militello on the north coast, an ideal starting point for sailing to the Aeolian islands.
DAY 2 : Vulcano (26nm). Rugged and barren, with lava eroded into fantastic shapes by the wind. There are therapeutic mud baths ashore.
DAY 3 : Stromboli (27nm). The only active volcano in the area, Stomboli is over 300 feet high and is visible for miles. The spectacular eruptive phenomena which can be admired from the sea! At night the red flow from the lava flow on the northwest coast is most impressive.
DAY 4 : Filicudi (33nm). Unspoilt and undeveloped, with stunning snorkelling and diving.
DAY 5 : Salina (12nm). One of the first national parks that was created in Sicily – it’s a peaceful island with all its original beauty.
DAY 6 : Lipari (10nm) The main and most populated island with a busy harbour. The port is small and busy. An excellent Aeolean museum exhibits remains from prehistoric through Phoenician, Greek, Carthaginian, Roman Byzantine, Norman and Spanish.
DAY 7 : Return to Sant’Agata di Militello (29nm).
