Clustered in the blue-green Mediterranean, in Sicily’s north-eastern coast, the Unesco-protected Aeolian Islands – Vulcano, Lipari, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli, Filicudi and Alicudi – are a little piece of paradise, each one with its own distinct character and personality: stunning waters provide sport for swimmers, sailors and divers, while trekkers can climb hissing volcanoes and gourmets can rejoice with cannoli, Malvasia and granita. In the summer, Lipari, the largest island, is flooded with tourists, and Panarea, the smallest, becomes notoriously chic, with its cool nightlife and fascinating social scene.
But in the rest of the Aeolians, you’ll find a lifestyle that holds quietude in high regard, as a UNESCO World Heritage site would. Salina is the greenest island, recognisable for its wild fennel and oregano scent, and plenty of Malvasia-specialised wineries; Vulcano could impress anyone with the unique panorama on its smoking crater and sulphurous fumes; Stromboli is widely renowned for its active volcano and its spectacular fire shows; Filicudi and Alicudi, almost untainted by tourism, make a dreamy hideaway for slow-pace and nature lovers.
