Sicily and Aeolian Islands
In the heart of the Mediterranean, Sicily is a cradle of centuries-old traditions, art and beautiful nature. The island will enchant you with its unique local culture and combination of unique foods and wine that draws its taste from the volcanic soil. The most special way to see the beauties of Sicily is in the privacy of a luxury yacht, where you set the rules and pace. Against the backgdrop of the remarkable beauty of the island, outdoor evenings are more special, and their continuation in an unforgettable party is a must. Do not miss Catania and Palermo and small gems like Taormina, which will immerse you in an inimitable atmosphere. Syracuse is iconic with its archeological sites, but the small family restaurants in 17th and 18th century buildings on the main street are no less interesting.
The Aeolian Islands are the seven magnificent pearls of the Mediterranean, north of Sicily. With their volcanic origin, each of them has its own charm and uniqueness. The history of Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli, Filikudi and Alikudi is ancient and dates back to the legend of the wind god Aeolus, who found refuge here. Over the centuries, the Aeolian Islands have enchanted travelers from all over the world, and today they remain popular with the two active volcanoes Stromboli and Vulcano, which often turn into a live spectacle of powerful rumble, volcanic smoke and “natural fireworks”. Only here you can have long lunches, with eggplant rolls prepared by locals according to original recipes, with freshly caught totano squid, drenched in Sicilian wine.
