Archipelago

The Aeolian islands are a UNESCO world heritage site and a nature reserve since 1981. Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Alicudi, Filicudi, Panarea and Stromboli: the seven “sisters” that rise from the Tyrrhenian Sea about forty kilometers from the north-eastern coast of Sicily, with a millennial history. The legend narrates that the Aeolian islands were created by Aeolus, the god of the wind. The islands have been inhabited since prehistory, being a crucial crossway for the Mediterranean civilizations, also featured in the greatest mythological stories, and are a symbol of uncontaminated nature.
