THE ARCHIPELAGO OF THE EOLIANS
The Archipelago of the Eolieans are of volcanic origins, situated in the Tirreno Sea, in the north of Sicily. It includes 7 major islands and smaller islands in its vicinity.
Lipari, Uncontaminated with rich vegetation and rare fauna. Lipari and Panarea's first inhabitants appeared during the Neolithic Age and became a main centre of commerce of obsidian, a volcanic glass. When this civilization came to an end, it remained a strategic reality and a thermal bathe locality.
Salina Rich and abundant vegetation with a great quantity of fresh water make Salina the ideal place for the cultivation of fruit, capers, prickly pears and grapevines with its production of Malvasia wine.
