Day 1
Your new home will be waiting for you from 17:00 (05:00 pm) in the marina of Portorosa, just 15 nautical miles south of the island of Vulcano. As the closest marina to the Aeolian Island, Portorosa is the perfect departure spot for a sailing cruise in the Aeolian archipelago!
Welcome on board by your crew and installation in the cabins. Departure before 19:00, overnight stay and dinner at anchor near the beach of Gelso in the south east of Vulcano.

Day 2
Arrival in the morning in Vulcano Harbour. With a two hour walk you can climb on the Fossa del volcano (Gran Cratere), where you will find a lunar landscape with a magnificent view. Once onboard we will proceed to the island of Lipari for a jump in the blue water of Spiaggia di Ponente on the south west of the island, where will wait for the sun to go down; we then set sail through the Faraglioni rocks between Lipari and Volcano towards Porto Pignataro, where will spend the night with the possibility to explore the local shops and bars. Lipari is the biggest and more populated of the Aeolian islands. The natural harbour of Lipari town is dominated by a convenient rock outcrop, that became the place of early settlers to build their home and fortifications. You will find lots of places were to eat or have a drink down the main street of Lipari.
Scooter can be rented (at extra cost) to visit the island. Pay a visit to the Cathedral in the center of the town, overlooking the bay.

Day 3
Departure after breakfast to the white beach of Porticello site of the already closed Pumice Quarry for a swim in the famous swimming pool like crystal water.
After lunch, route to Salina with a stop at anchor in “Lingua”, the south-east tip of the island where a salt lake is located, and house of the famous bar “Da Alfredo” where the typical granita (crushed ice with fruit) can be tasted. After a last swim we will proceed to near marina of Santa Marina where we will spend the night, and where you can explore the local shops and bistros.
Salina is the second largest island of the archipelago, and most famous for the Malvasia grape and wine that cannot be missed. The perfect island to do an eno-gastronomic tour…wine tasting; and for sure try the best capers in the world!
