An archipelago of seven islands — including the most active volcano in Europe — the Aeolian Islands are a UNESCO world heritage site as appealing to hedonists as nature lovers. All islands have pristine waters, whitewashed villages, mountainsides of maquis, aperitivi at sunset and star-lit seafood dinners, but each island also has its own identity. You can party to the small hours or climb an active volcano; wallow in mud baths or walk along mule tracks; get away from it all or rub shoulders with fashionistas; and perhaps the best thing of all is that you don’t need to make a choice, you can do all of these things and more!
