AEOLIAN ISLANDS GULET CRUISE
Experience the Sicilian lifestyle and tradition with an escorted gulet cruise! On a crossroads in the Mediterranean, part of Europe and Africa, yet belonging to neither, Sicily was tramped across by half of the ancient civilized world. As conquerors came and went, they left behind elements of their culture, resulting in the rich and varied mixture that typifies every aspect of Sicilian life, from language, customs and cooking to art, and, most notably, architecture. Sicily is a curiosity, and the legacy of the past is redolent everywhere. They say that today there is as much Phoenician, Greek, Arabic, Norman, Spanish or French blood in Sicilian veins as there is Italian. The resulting mixture – exotic and spicy- has created a distinct culture at the foot of Italy.
The seven Aeolian Islands can be found across the Tyrrhenian Sea, just off the North Eastern coast of Sicily. Island lovers will be drawn to these glittering shores, each with its own unique character and breathtaking beauty.Believed to have been home to the mythological Greek Gods of wind and fire, the untamed forces of nature still abound here whilst other islands have been tempered and tamed by their inhabitants.
Our beautiful Gulet features 6 spacious double cabins, all with private bathroom, shower and air conditioning. Outside, at the stern there is a shaded area with table and sofas, on the deck there are two levels that can be walked on with sunbathing areas and towards the bow another table for those who prefer to stay in the sun. Great importance is given to the kitchen offering delicious dishes of the Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine.
We have a real passion for the Aeolian Islands and look forward to sharing it with you !
