The Aeolian islands (Isole Eolie) are a group of attractive islands in the Tyrrhenian Sea about 25-50km north of Sicily. Formerly off the beaten track, this diverse group of volcanic islands is becoming more popular and can be very busy during July and August.
Salina is lush and hilly - great for a relaxing walk. Some of the film Il Postino was shot here.
