Excursions & day trips
The Aeolian Islands are a collection of seven volcanic beauties, so impressive they've bagged a place on the UNESCO-list. On this island-hopping tour, you'll take in three of the best. Sail over to the pastel-coloured port of Lipari, mix with the jet-set crowd in Panarea and enjoy an evening cruise around Stromboli, famous for its glowing lava flows.Skirting the northern shores of Sicily, we'll sail into the Tyrrhenian Sea and set course for a trio of Aeolian gems. First, there'll be free time to soak up the charm of the pastel-coloured fishing port of Lipari – the largest town on the island of the same name.Next, potter around well-preened Panarea, whose pretty streets are lined with whitewashed houses. Finally, we dock in Stromboli. You can dip into a few eateries or grab a drink as the suns sets. Then, hop back on the boat to see its volcanic crater and, with luck, the magical ‘Sciara del Fuoco' lava flows that light up the night sky.
