Great enthusiasm and satisfaction accompanied the arrival in sunny Sicily of the first group of Chinese sailors who responded to the eternal appeal of Aeolian tourism: the immortal charm of our archipelago has successfully crossed international borders, reaching the public of the Rising Sun thanks to the commitment of the axis Spartivento, Ucina and Assomarinas, authentic forerunners of the Italian nautical offer addressed to the oriental world.

The challenge raised by the italian partners began a year ago, with the official invitation as representatives and excellences of Italian tourism at Shanghai and Singapore boat shows: to them, the merit of connecting two cultures at the antipodes, but united by the deep passion for the sea, sailing trips and the discovery of a nature and tradition that today more than ever represent a world heritage.The answers from the Chinese side did not take long to arrive, with a joyful crew that from the Marina of Portorosa raised the anchor in the direction of the Aeolian Islands for seven days, to discover the best that the southern and Aeolian landscape has to offer: the crew, captained from Ronnie Wang of Shenzen, was able to taste the typical flavors and get lost in the sunsets of Lipari, Stromboli, Panarea and the other sisters, relying on the experience and comfort offered by Spartivento as a trusted company for his first sailing holiday in Italy .

On board one of the last Oceanis Beneteau models among the many available in fleet, Ronnie and his family have immortalized the most suggestive views along the route, offering their passionate sailors a fascinating preview on the pleasures and attractions of a nautical experience in the Mediterranean.”The boat holiday in Italy is a rich and dynamic experience: the Aeolian Islands are full of very varied offers, and in addition to a splendid navigation we also experienced yoga classes, climbing and excursions on Stromboli”.

Impressions that, in addition to leaving great satisfaction among the experts, confirm the unchanged value and beauty of an authentic earthly paradise and of the hospitality that distinguishes it, able to hit straight into the hearts of visitors from every corner of the world. A national treasure with an increasingly global caliber, thanks to the passion for nautical tourism and the commitment made by important companies such as Spartivento, Ucina and Assomarinas.
