Escape the crowds in Salina, the greenest of the Aeolian Islands
Founded by the Ancient Greeks in the 4th century BC and later forming part of the Roman Empire, Salina is the second-largest of the Aeolian Islands, this volcanic archipelago of wonders north of Sicily. The greenest of the Aeolian Islands, Salina is known for its lush vegetation. No matter its small size, the island offers amazing hiking opportunities with scenic views.
Route for Salina tour
Abundant in olive groves and vineyards, Salina is the ideal place to taste two of Italy's most treasured products: extra virgin olive oil and wine. Salina is also famous for the top-quality capers that grow on its volcanic soil. In Salina, you will have the opportunity to refill your batteries in upscale yet intimate hotels renowned for their quintessentially Italian hospitality. If you have itchy feet, Salina is also the perfect base to explore the rest of the Aeolian Islands on easy day trips, thanks to its location in the heart of the archipelago.

Things to do in Salina

Fitting for an island that is mostly visited in summer, and surrounded by abundant fresh fish, almost all wines grown on Salina are white. Enjoying a glass or two, or visiting a small winery, are an essential part of any stay here. Another celebrated product of Salina is the signature caper. Before tourism, Malvasia-based wines, along with capers, were the driving force of the local economy. Private or small group boat trips are the best way to see Salina's Aeolian neighbors, with all the timings taken care of for you.
