True to its namesake, Aeolus – Greek god of the winds, the Aeolian Islands are one of the worlds best sailing areas. These islands boasts beautiful scenery, volcanoes, castles, thermal resorts, great beaches and interesting ports such as Marina Lunga in the main island of Lipari.
Lipari, spreads out from the port. It has a Norman-era church and a fine archaeological museum. Sicily was colonized by ancient Greeks and parts of the castle remains from these early times. The thirteenth-century walls dominate the structure that entertained over the centuries Carthaginians, Romans, Saracens, Normans, Spanish and eventually … Italians.
