Sail Sicily and the Aeolian Islands!
September 14-21, 2024

Sicily is Italy’s largest island, full of mountains and lowlands.  A gem of the Med.  The islands to the north are where we will be sailing.  There’s no better way to see Sicily’s Aeolian Islands than under sail – they are, after all, named after the Greek demigod of wind, Aeolus. Our luxury catamaran we will call home for the week ensures cruising with comfort and ease. All cabins are doubles with private head.

We start on the Sicilian mainland. On the way, there are plenty of swimming opportunities, plus paddleboards and snorkeling gear available.

Sailing itinerary (weather dependent)

Portorosa - we board the boats, put your things away and familiarize yourself with your home for the week.

Vulcano - The yachts will anchor in a beautiful bay south of the island before heading to Vulcano Bay of Levente or Ponente (depending on the weather). In the evening, the group will enjoy a delicious fresh fish dinner at a restaurant near the port.

Panarea - This chic little island attracts VIPs, celebrities and Italy's wealthy youth, who come in the summer for yachting breaks, romantic escapes and late-night partying on terraces with views. 

Salina - we sail towards the tiny islet of Basiluzzo, the smallest of the eight Aeolian islands, for a day stop with stunning scenery. Later we sail to Salina, with its lush green mountains and freshwater springs, where we’ll end the day with dinner at a local restaurant.

Filicudi -After anchoring for lunch at Pollara, the next island on our itinerary is Filicudi which is among the prettiest and least-developed island in the Aeolian archipelago. Characterised by stunning blue grottos and prehistoric villages, flotilla guests will grab a mooring buoy and settle in for dinner and overnight stay.

Lipari -Heading towards the largest Aeolian Island of Lipari, we will anchor at the famous white pumice beach “spiaggia Bianca di pomici” before docking in marina Lunga for the night. In the evening, we will join together for dinner in a traditional agriturismo (independently owned farm).

The Aeolian Islands are famous for their active volcanoes, which provide hot springs, dramatic hiking and exciting, smoking terrain. Vulcano itself gave us the word ‘volcano’ but it’s Stromboli that steals the limelight these days. Standing on the deck at night, you might be able to watch a natural fireworks display as sparks fly from its crater.
