The Italian island of Lipari is the largest of the Aeolian Islands and lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the northern coast of Sicily. The island is located between Vesuvius and Etna and is around 30 km from Sicily. Lipari is a relatively small island, measuring just under 40 sq. km, with one main town, also called Lipari, and 4 other villages: Pianoconte, Quattropani, Acquacalda and Canneto. Lipari Town is a lovely place to take a stroll and has a number of elegant town houses, along with some more modest houses, with flower strewn balconies set along pretty little streets. The island's inhabitants are very welcoming to visitors and tend to have a cheery disposition. There are many souvenir shops on the island and a good selection of cafe's and restaurants serving good, local food and drink. There are traces of the island's history throughout the island with Greek tombs that lie open to the sky. However, perhaps the most impressive visitor attraction on the island is its castle.
Lipari is the most practical base for visiting the Aeolian Islands. Fast ferry connections from Sicily all stop here, and there are plenty of boats and hydrofoils to the other islands.
Rinella is a small Italian village that is located on the island of Salina which is one of the Aeolian Islands. The island's full name is Santa Marina Salina and lies around 120 km to the north east of Palermo and 70 km to the north west of Messina. The island is well known for its black sandy beaches and its caves and also for its square which was used as a filming location for the movie "Volcano".
There are three areas on Salina: Santa Marina on the eastern coast, Malfa to the north and Leni to the south west and from Leni heading down to the coast is the village of Rinella. Located above the village of Leni is Valdichiesa in the island's centre. Other small villages on Salina are Capo Faro, Pollara and Lingua.
The village is home to the island's port where ferries can be taken to Palermo and Milazzo on the island of Sicily.
