Days 6-9 Aeolian Islands
Relax yourself in the beautiful beaches of the Aeolian Islands, also known as the “Seven pearls of the Mediterranean Sea” because of their extra-ordinary beauty. The present shape of the islands is the result of volcanic activity over a period of 260.000 years!
From Lipari, the most lively of the islands, you will have plenty of opportunities to explore all the Aeolian Islands: sail to the Island of Salina and swim in the beautiful Bay of Pollara, stop in the port of Santa Marina. Swim in the blue waters of the Venus Pool and visit the “Cavallo” Grotto in Vulcano Island. Visit the “Fossa” crater (400 m) and observe the activity of the main crater. Enjoy the thermal waters and the mud of the island. In Stromboli Island there is a volcano constantly active with minor eruptions, often visible from many points on the island and from the surrounding sea, giving rise to the island's nickname "Lighthouse of the Mediterranean". A significant geological feature of the volcano is the “Sciara del Fuoco” ("Stream of fire"), a big horseshoe-shaped depression generated in the last 13.000 years by several collapses on the northwestern side of the cone. Two kilometres northeast lies Strombolicchio, remnant of the original volcano and also known for being the inspiration behind “Mordor”, from J.R.R. Tolkien's “Lord of the Rings”.
