7 days in the Aeolian Islands on a superyacht

1 of 7 1/7
VIEW ON ONE PAGE
Island of Levanzo, Aeolian Islands
Day 1

Palermo and Levanzo

When one hears the name Sicily, images of Taormina, Etna and Messina are conjured up. These are great destinations, but if you want a truly unique experience, you should charter a superyacht in the Aeolian Islands.

You won’t find lots of glitzy nightlife, just picture-postcard villages and endless opportunities to hike in the rugged, windswept mountains, swim in some of the clearest waters in the Mediterranean and laze in the hot, southern sun.

Day 1: Palermo and Levanzo

Palermo may have its hidden treasures, but this trip is more about quiet anchorages and life in the slow lane. Close to the Punta Raisi airport lies the miniature boat basin at Terassini from where you are just a tender ride away from your yacht waiting close by at anchor. After several hours pleasant cruising westwards, you’ll arrive at CalaFredda, on the island of Levanzo.

Spend a comfortable night in this snug anchorage after exploring Levanzo’s Grotta del Genovese with its amazing 6-10,000-year-old cave drawings depicting Sicily’s most ancient industry – tuna fishing.
