The quiet villages of the island will leave you feeling at ease with the world and a long way from the hustle and bustle of home… You can explore the beautiful harbour town with its whitewashed houses climbing up the hillside and for a livelier scene, perhaps take an espresso on Via Risorgimento, lined with cafes and beautiful boutiques.

In the afternoon, sail to Vulcano, an incredible island that bubbles and spits with more to do than you might think.
