The Aeolian Islands in Sicily

If you travel to Italy, a great place to visit in the summer is the Aeolian Islands in the north of Sicily. Every year, thousands of tourists enjoy the amazing beaches and wildlife that this volcanic archipelago offers. The main islands of the archipelago are three, which are: Lipari, Stromboli and Vulcano. Lipari is the biggest and most developed island, and its town has approximately 11,000 inhabitants. Stromboli is the most far-away and volcanically active and finally, Vulcano is well-known for its fango baths that improve the skin thanks to minerals. The remaining islands are visited mostly by day trippers and they offer only essential facilities.

Another important thing is that this place is listed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a World Heritage Site. The decision was made because this site enriches the field of vulcanology and geology. Its particular volcanic landforms and its activity are very attractive for Scientifics that like to study these processes. However, the Aeolian Islands are a paradise that generally attracts visitors for its beautiful scenery and its crystalline waters that offer first class snorkeling and other aquatic activities. Therefore, visit this paradise on earth and do not wait until heaven!
