Capo d’Orlando was a fishing village but today it has become a small and important tourist centre. The town is located on the northern coast of Sicily. The sea here is crystal clear and clean, shimmering in all shades of blue and green, from cobalt to tourist emerald. Capo d’Orlando is an ideal tourist location for visiting the Aeolian Islands.
The island of Alicudi offers an intact landscape and a particular setting. Time seems to have stopped and nature manifests itself in a miniature paradise, where man and nature coexist. You can walk along the impervious paths that climb the mountain. The only possible means of transport on this wonderful island is the mule. There are two small grocery stores, the post office, a few other shops for basic necessities and the only beach is within walking distance.
Taormina is the tourist capital of Sicily. The town was inhabited since the Archaic era. The most important monument of Taormina is the ancient Greek-Roman theater. It is the second-largest ancient theater in Sicily after the Greek Theater of Syracuse. Due to its location, it is the most beautiful ancient theater in the world.
Stromboli is the most beautiful. It is an island with a volcano in a constant state of mild activity, punctuated by occasional larger and more violent eruptions. Although small lava eruptions are not dangerous, one must still be aware of the possible danger. Therefore, you should never climb the volcano without a local expert guide. Onboard our boat, you can safely watch the most incredible and unforgettable spectacle of the erupting Stromboli from the sea.
Salina is well known for three products: fish, capers and malvasia, the sweet dessert wine.
The sea of the Island of Salina is simply wonderful. The water is extremely clean and is home to a large variety of marine animals, plants, caves and submerged volcanic craters. The bay of Pollara, where several scenes from the film Il Postino with Massimo Troisi were shot, is one of the most beautiful bays in the entire Aeolian archipelago.
The port of San Pietro is a picturesque cobweb of white streets and is home to most of the island’s restaurants, bars and shops. In Panarea there are also enchanting coves and, in the southernmost point of the island, Cala Junco with transparent and crystalline waters is probably the most beautiful bay of all the Aeolian Islands. Just off the east coast of Panarea: Dattilo, Lisca Bianca, Basiluzzo, Lisca Nera and Bottaro and the turquoise sea all around are excellent for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Landed in Filicudi Porto you can immediately admire the wild charm of the island. In the coastal stretch, near the pier, it is possible to visit a large beach with a crystalline sea.

In fact, from this location it is possible to see all the other islands and the northern coast of Sicily. Continuing, you will arrive at Pecorini alto which offers an enchanting view of the small fishing village of Pecorini mare. Going down, there is a beautiful pebble beach which is the favorite spot for sailors who stop for an aperitif in high season.
Cefalù, in addition to being one of the most important tourist centers, is also one of the largest seaside resorts in all of Sicily. Like Milazzo, Cefalù is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Going up from Piazza Garibaldi along a picturesque path you reach the fortress overlooking Cefalù. Hovering over the cliff are the remains of ancient fortifications, perhaps from the Byzantine era. A little further on there are the remains of an ancient pagan temple dedicated to Diana from the 9th century BC. Cefalù is one of the best-preserved walled cities not only in Sicily but in the whole European panorama. From the fortress, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the panorama of Cefalù.
