The Aeolian Islands are a dramatic series of islands and tiny islets off the north coast of Sicily, all created, and some still being created, by volcanic activity. Sailing from the Sicilian port of Capo D’Orlando, we will visit the islands of Vulcano (where ‘volcano’ was derived from), Lipari, Salina, Stromboli and Panarea.
There will be plenty of time for swimming and exploring the islands, and in the evenings we will explore the restaurants of the ports and villages where we spend the night. Our on board chef will provide some fine lunches using local ingredients and recipes.
The cuisine is very important for us and our highly skilled chef is a specialist in the preparation of traditional Sicilian dishes, such as pasta with sardines, fish couscous, busiati (a type of pasta) and many other specialities, served in a comfortable dining room surrounded by breathtaking scenery.
