Sicilian Islands: Around the Aeolians Renting Holiday Homes in Every Island of Sicily
There is no better way to spend an authentic Mediterranean holiday in Sicily- with all the richness of its ancient past at your fingertips – than lodging at a vacation rental in one of the seven wonders of the Aeolian archipelago: Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli, Filicudi and Alicudi. A wonder to behold because of their unique and strategic setting in the Mediterranean, their natural park reserves protected by the UNESCO initiative, and their diverse cross-cultural heritage expressed in the local folklore and traditions, they are a special place to visit if you fancy a holiday in the sunny island beaches of Southern Italy. Online you can find a wide selection of holiday villas for rent that come at very affordable prices. Tripping.com and Tripadvisor are valuable resources that can help you customize your search.
Stromboli (province of Messina), is famous for its active volcano which spills lava and incandescent fumes daily and offers a unique spectacle up close and in person as it bathes the blue cobalt sea with its magma. The beaches of this small island, filled with dark volcanic sand, are an exotic discovery for every nature enthusiast. Boat rides also add to the adventure.
