Day trip to Aeolian Islands: Panarea and Stromboli tour from Messina. Discover two wonderful islands of the Aeolian archipelago…the perfect places to live your Sicilian holiday between nature and relax.

The Panarea and Stromboli tour begins with a visit to Panarea island, the smallest island of the archipelago, and also the most enchanting one. Take a stroll to discover the island: visit the center, characterized by the typical Aeolian white houses with blue doors and windows; go shopping in the exclusive fancy shops; enjoy a swim in the wonderful Caletta dei Zimmari.

After a panoramic tour of the cliffs around the islands, this day trip to Aeolian Islands will continue with a tour of Stromboli island, the spectacular active volcano. Take a sunbath on the black sand, visit the center and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Mediterranean views. The departure will be during the sunset to admire the extraordinary and explosive show of the Sciara del Fuoco, a live eruption of Stromboli volcano which will make clear why Stromboli tours are the most requested and among the best.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however.
