About Italy

Overview
Just off Sicily, the lush peaks, vineyards and Mediterranean glamour make the Aeolian Islands a hot destination. The archipelago is surrounded by a beautiful cobalt blue sea with a history of sea adventures dating back 5000 years. Our event starts in Sicily and weaves around the Aeolian Islands. These islands exhibit a unique range of volcanic characteristics making them a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Famed for perfect weather and a series of active volcanoes with numerous craters, the islands are a real paradise for yachting.
Fabulous yachting and breathtaking scenery aside, without a doubt food and wine are among the Aeolian Island’s main attractions. It is virtually impossible not to be tempted by the incredible array of divine Mediterranean food and wine.

Provisioning, water, shops, bars, restaurants and Yacht Week parties will be found in nearly all the ports we stop at. At the few places where you wont have these practicalities in return you will get an unforgettable experience when anchoring in a natural bay.
