charter-Luciano-11

Aeolian yacht charter - discover the amazing Sicilian islands: Lipari, Salina, Stromboli, Vulcano, Panarea, Filicudi and Alicudi. Being part of UNESCO World Heritage the Aeolian islands' history dates back at least 5,000 years with evidence of  prehistoric villages, ruins, excavations, pottery and tools. The setting over time is a volcanic one, amazing combination of the heat of Sicilian sun, volcano and crystal Mediterranean waters.

Aeolian yacht charter - suggested itinerary:

lipariDAY 1: Your chosen yacht will be most likely berthed in Milazzo or Capo D'Orlando, where the guests can join the vessel. Cocktails and dinner onboard and an introduction to the yacht and crew.

DAY 2: Exploring Isola Vulcano, lunch at anchor in Porto di Ponente. Later in the afternoon, sail to Porto di Levante and berth for the night. Whilst there, the guests can view Gran Cratere, the only active volcano on the island.

DAY 3: Explore the beautiful area of the island Vulcano. Swimming in the hot mineral springs bubbling up from the seabed and taking a mud bath. It is possible to observe numerous volcanic phenomenons here, from smoke clouds, vapor spouts (at both the volcano’s mouth and under the sea) and sulphuric mud holes known for their therapeutic properties.

DAY 5: The yacht cruises to Isola Stromboli. Lunch at anchor and see the oldest lighthouse in the world. The volcano is active but safe! Lucky visitors might just get to see the Sciara del Fuoco, the lava flow that runs down into the sea. Other places to visit include San Vincenzo, the medieval borgo surrounded by very particular white house-boats; the isolated fishing village of Ginostra that clings to Stromboli’s rocky side, accessible only via animal trails; and the Strombolicchio, a giant boulder – of course, born from an eruption – which is topped by a large lighthouse.
