Forming a volcanic archipelago off Sicily’s northern coast that bridges the gap between Vesuvius and Etna are the Aeolian Islands; formed a million years ago following a succession of volcanic explosions, there are eight islands in the chain. Witness the incredible and untouched natural landscapes, explore centuries-old fortresses, trek to volcanic craters and swim in some of the clearest seas in the Mediterranean.
