SCIARA DEL FUOCO, the volcanic slopes of the island of Stromboli

Sailing the Aeolian Islands

The Aeolian Islands are a volcanic archipelago north of Sicily, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Named after the wind god Aeolus, a great way to visit them is on a sailing boat. And I did it! In early July, along with two friends, I sailed around the islands of Vulcano, Lipari, Panarea and Stromboli – four of the seven islands that form this archipelago.
