Rinella Guide

The small village of Rinella is located on the island of Salina, or Santa Marina Salina to give it its full name. Forming one of the Aeolian islands, it is around 140 km to the north east of Palermo and 70 km to the north west of Messina. Known for its caves and black beaches, and its square which was a filming location for the movie "Volcano", Rinella is also home to the island's second port.

The island is divided into three regions/towns. Santa Marina is on the eastern coast, Malfa is to the north and Leni is in the south west of the island. Rinella is located down towards the sea from Leni. Located above the village of Leni is Valdichiesa in the island's centre. Other villages on the island include Capo Faro, Pollara and Lingua.

Ferry services from the small harbour depart to Palermo and Milazzo on the island of Sicily.

Alicudi Guide

The Italian island of Alicudi in one of the Aeolian Islands which is located off the coast of Sicily and mainland Italy. It is the most remote of the Aeolian Islands and also has the island group's smallest population, with around 100 inhabitants. The island's only form of transport are its donkeys which can frequently be heard braying. Because of the island's small population, and size, and because its tourist infrastructure is perhaps not as well developed as some of its neighbours, it has managed to retain a great deal of its rugged, authentic charm. The island's simplicity is an attraction for certain types of visitors; adventurers, artists and writers.

The island is actually a volcanic cone protruding from the sea which is now covered in vegetation and extinct. There are a number of footpaths, that begin from the little port on the island, that climb the island's steep slopes, passing cultivated terraces. Formerly, the island was called Ericusa which derives from the heather (Erica) that grows on the island's slopes. Some of the island's houses are well maintained and some are abandoned and are mainly located in the east of the island as the island's western slopes are steep and inaccessible.

There are scheduled ferry services to Alicudi from the other Aeolian Islands, from Sicily and from the Italian mainland.
