heading for Aeolian islands

Feature

Italy :


25km away from Capo Milazzo, facing Sicilia, this volcanic archipelago, which is listed as World Heritage by UNESCO, is a world on its own. As Ulysses, who has accomplished a long journey there, the cabotage from island to islands on board a legendary boat, the last Brigantino of Felicce Captain, is an incredible journey between earth and sea. The perfect melting between the four elements. Thus, the showers of fire of the volcano Stromboli flirting with the yellow sulfur of Vulcano. The green tonalities of the aromatic maquis of Filicudi pairing with the dazzling turquoise emeralds of the sea floor around Panarea. On the other side, on Salina, the winds seem to rock the grape-vines of Malvoisia and the fields of capers. While the capital Lipari, with its battalion of vespas, looks like a mini Italia. A true Dolce Vita! Text : Marie-France Parra
