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. See 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.

“Nowhere else has quite the mix of incredible culture, history and food. I love wandering around Italian villages and cities, soaking up the atmosphere, admiring the buildings and marvelling at the fact people actually live in them. Who hasn’t wished, at least once, that they were born Italian?” - Simon Reeve
