The Aeolian archipelago, with its 7 islands, is the emerging part of a huge submarine volcanic arc which extends for around 200 km.
The Aeolian Islands are the result of a submarine volcanic activity.
They emerged from the sea 2 million years ago. Geologists found some rocks dating back to 1 million 300 thousand years ago and lavas dating back to 500 thousand years ago.
Panarea, Lipari, Filicudi and Alicudi are the most ancient volcanoes. In Panarea and Lipari there are still fumaroles and thermal springs, while in Alicudi, Filicudi and Salina the volcanic activity has completely disappeared. Vulcano and Stromboli are the only active volcanoes.
The island was defined in ancient times as the “Lighthouse of the Tyrrhenian Sea”. Its glares flashing every 20 minutes can be seen even from a great distance.
The Mediterranean vegetation characterizes all islands: oleanders, myrtles, rockroses, heaths together with rosemary, thymes, heliotropes and mastic trees are the most common plants.
Two woody plants can also be found in almost all Aeolian islands: grape-vines and olive trees. The landscape is characterised by cultures of olive trees and grape-vines, bushes and pioneer vegetation.
The most important products that are exported from these islands are capers and “malvasia”, a dessert wine produced mainly in the island of Salina using local grapes.
The rich and varied fauna includes vertebrate animals like birds and lizards and invertebrate species like coleopterans and gastropod seashells.
The sea is full of life: anchovies, sardines, mackerels, molluscs and crustaceans are the most common ones.
Even though they are being abandoned, tuna and swordfish fishing are traditional activities carried out at the end of spring in the islands of Lipari and Stromboli.
The weather in the Aeolian Archipelago is very arid, due to the scarce rain. The temperature is mild during winter and not too high during summer, thanks to the marine breeze.
The average temperatures are 13° C. during winter (January), 20° C. during spring (May), 27° C. during summer (July) and 21° C. in autumn (October).
The yearly average temperature fluctuates between 20° and 16° C. The predominant winds are the Mistral (north-west wind) and the Scirocco (south-east wind).
ABOUT LIPARI ISLAND= Lipari is the largest (with a surface of 37 Km2) and most important island of the Aeolian Archipelago. It is a volcanic
island whose aspect is the result of countless eruptions and long periods of inactivity. Lipari is also the most populated island of the archipelago and its 10.000
residents live in different urban areas: Lipari, Pianoconte, Canneto, Quattropani, Acquacalda, Porticello, are connected through an excellent road network.
The main ports of the island are located in the urban area of Lipari: Marina Corta for smaller boats and Marina Lunga for ships and hydrofoils.
On the island you can find some important monuments: the "Castello" (the Castle), with its powerful walls is located in a strategic position,
while the Cathedral was built by the Normans in 1080 and modified during the following centuries. The whole history of the Aeolian Islands can be found
in Lipari and is collected in the very important and valuable Archaeological Museum, well known at international level. Marina Corta's small square,
with the small church of the Souls of Purgatory, is the centre of the nightlife with bars and restaurants and a wonderful sea view. The night of Saint Bartholomew
(on August 24th) incredible fireworks launched directly from the sea enlighten the little square.
Behind Marina Corta, there is the small town of Lipari, with the main road, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, full of shops and characteristic alleys.
Another striking view can be found at the Cave di Pomice in the Porticello area. In this bay there are still the pumice mines and the mills that are no
more working except one. The remains of pumice processing formed white mountains of fine sand sloping to the sea.
The view is incredible: over the light blue sea you can still see the old boarding bridges once used to freight the pumice directly on the ships.
One of the favourite pastimes of tourists is to climb the pumice mountains and jump down to the light blue sea.
The best way to tour the island is by car or, even better, by scooter (that can also be rented here).
