The Aeolian Islands

The Aeolian Islands have appeared in the sea to form a large Y off the Sicilian coast, home to the Capo d’Orlando Marina. They are all of volcanic origin and each has its own particular charm.

The history of Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli, Filicudi and Alicudi is ancient and mingles with legend, which says they were named after the god Aeolus, who took refuge there and was worshipped by the islanders.

The Aeolian Islands have enchanted travellers from all over the world, and today have a formidable tourist appeal, for the clarity of the sea bed, the natural environment, the two active volcanoes Stromboli and Vulcano, the characteristic villages and the friendliness of the inhabitants.

Capo d'Orlando

Founded, according to legend, at the time of the Trojan War, Capo d’Orlando owes its name to the Paladin Orlando, who is said to have rested there during a crusade to the Holy Land.

Born as a fishing village and bathed by a clear, fishy sea, Capo d’Orlando is a modern, lively town with a strong vocation for tourism.

The Capo is a sheer cone of rock on a coastline that alternates between white sandy beaches and fantastically shaped rocks.

Inland lies the marvellous Nebrodi Park, known for its unspoilt landscapes and variety of flora and fauna. Its forests, lakes and mountain villages are worth more than a visit, as is the tasting of typical products: black pig salami, cheeses, honey and much more.

Nebrodi Mountains

The Nebrodi Mountains are a majestic mountain range located in the northern part of Sicily, Italy.

Their wild beauty is characterised by unspoilt nature, with a variety of landscapes ranging from snow-capped peaks in winter to green pastures and oak and beech forests.

These mountains offer shelter to wild animals and are dotted with ancient villages and historical vestiges that tell of the ancient civilisations that inhabited these lands.

The Nebrodi are a natural treasure, a paradise for lovers of hiking and unspoilt nature.
