Naples is a thriving metropolis, renowned for its rich history,
art, architecture, culture and -perhaps most famous- its
gastronomy. The surrounding country is just as interesting, set
between two volcanic areas. After exploring the vibrant city, set

The magic Aeolian Islands
There are seven amazing islands in this region. Stromboli is the
first one, with its towering active volcano. The magic little
islands of Panarea are further East. The main attractions of the
black-sand beached Vulcano are boiling waters and sulfurous muds.
Extensive Lipari, the most famous among the islands, offers great
views of the Castle surrounded by walls, the Norman Cathedral and
the famous Archeologic Museum. Salina with her thick Mediterranean
vegetation is very famous for capperi fish and Malvasia wine.
Filicudi is full of deep caves while Alicudi is wild and isolated.
The biggest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily can be
recognized by her triangular shape- hence its other name,
“Trinacria”, from the ancient Greek language meaning “three tips”.
Although mainly mountainous, it has a few small plains. The biggest
one is near Catania (Piana di Catania) and the second-biggest near
Palermo (Conca d’oro); both are famous for the cultivation of
citrus. The main feature in Sicilian landscape is Mount Etna, an
active volcano located on the eastern side of the island. In the
south of the island, the beautiful archeological site of Selinunte
is well worth a visit; Agrigento also is a city full of history. In
the northeast, the metropolis Messina's harbor is sure to have a
spot for your luxury yacht- leave it there and go
taste some of the excitements the city has to offer.
In addition to the main island, Sicily is surrounded by many small
islands which are popular holiday destinations for locals and
outsiders alike. Visiting these islands is evidently simplest and
quickest by rental boat. For first-time sailors, there
is on need to fret- the experienced sailors on your crewed
charter will take care of all your navigating needs.
Some of the islands where they might take you: the archipelagos of
the Aeolian Islands, off the north eastern coast of Sicily; the
Egadi Islands, off the west tip of the main island, as well as the
three islands Favignana, Marettimo and Levanzo of the Aegadian
Islands; the Pelagie Islands, off the south coast, very close to
Africa; and the small island of Ustica, off the north western coast
in front of Palermo, located in the middle of a national marine
