Sicily is the largest island of Italy and of the Mediterranean sea. It is famous for its beautiful beaches, cuisine, and fascinating history.
The climate, ever dominated by the winds, highlights the nature of this archipelago with air, water, earth and fire. Why not allow yourself the direct fascinating experience of an intense blue sea, clear crystalline rocks against a backdrop rich in flora and fauna, ranging from the pebble beaches and thin black sand, contrasted by gigantic sharp rock faces that rise sheer from the sea and are hosts to caverns and sea caves, especially when illuminated by glorious sunsets and dawns? The beauty and characteristics of these seven sisters varies from island to island. In order of size they are Lipari, Salina, Vulcano, Panarea, Stromboli, Filicudi and Alicudi.
Perhaps you yearn with an eye to adventure for a mysterious and, perhaps romantic, destination for an historic 'last frontier' unspoiled, as yet, by intense tourism, within an agreeable Mediterannean setting? Try to imagine an Archipelago, within the Mediterranean sea, that has been inhabited continuously since before recorded history that has been the site of ancient (even before Greek and Roman times) and modern battles of historical moment and record.
Consider, for a moment, an area that derives its name from a Greek identity celebrated in Homer's Odessey. Ponder upon the existence of an ancient local church that has known Christianity for some 1800 years; first evangelized by Greek Byzantine monks and hermits and still redundant with the locality names and devotions that they established.
Take note of the site of one of the richest and most important Archiological museums that continuously grows as more ancient local sites are discovered. Imagine a group of islands which still manifest their volcanic origins, especially by the activity of one inhabited volcano that has been constantly active during recorded history, is dubbed the 'lighthouse of the Mediterranean and which is easily accessible to the visitor.
Yes, such a fascinating group, composed of seven islands that enjoy an ideal climate varying strictly between 10 - 30 deg. centigrade and located in a sparkling transparent sea, just off the North-East coast of Sicily (The ancient 'Greator Greece') does exist. These 'seven sisters' bear the name of the Aeolian Islands. Eolus, the Greek god of the winds, was reputed by the ancients to have made his abode first on the ever-active volcanic island of Stromboli (derived from the Greek word 'strongyle' - 'the round one.' Homer celebrated both him and Stromboli in the 10th. book of the 'Odessey.'
