The Eolie tour is certainly one of the best things to do in Sicily both for adults and children, because it offers to you the possibility to visit two islands in just one day. The most popular Eolie tour are:

- Vulcano-Lipari, in which you will find yourself in an open-air SPA in which you have the possibility to take the course of sulphurous mud baths to make your skin brighter, and to take advantage of the natural pool of its marvellous sea. The other destination is Lipari, the greatest of the "seven sisters” (e.g Aeolian Islands are named the seven sisters) and, for this reason, that one that offers more tourist attractions as archaeological sites, unspoiled natural and leisure.

- Panarea-Stromboli, to spend an exciting day that begins with the visit of the “smaller” sister, Panarea, but probably also the most lovely to visit. Then, you will be amazed by the vision of Stromboli eruptions, a spectacle that repeats every 5-10 minutes making us reflect on how alive the earth we live in is: you will enjoy all this, accompanied by a spectacular sunset on the sea.

The strength of nature, expressed through the volcanic eruptions, now makes room for the peace that only an island can offer. The black of the sand that mixes with the light blue of the sea, the white of the houses with blue doors surrounded by lush bougainvilleas, the green of the capers, will give you a unique experience. This is the environment in which artists seek refuge to find the purest inspiration.
