The Unesco-protected Aeolian Islands are a volcanic archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the northern coast of Sicily consisting of a number of islands and some small islets.
The islands are made of Lipari (the largest and most populous), Filicudi (small westerly Island with few amenities), Alicudi (the second smallest of inhabited islands and the most remote), Salina (one of the larger islands and the greenest and most fertile of the group), Vulcano (the southernmost island, famous for its mud baths), Stromboli (to the northwest of the group and home to one of the most active volcanoes in Europe), Panarea (hugely popular in the summer) and the uninhabited Basiluzzo.
The Aeolian Islands boast extraordinary natural beauty and with their Mediterranean climate attract hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.
By nature of their geography and size, ferry transportation provides the only permanent mode of transportation to and around the islands. There are many inter-island connections available as well as to/from Sicily and mainland Italy, with increased ferry services operating during the summer season.
