Italy, Sicily, The Aeolian Islands – Lipari and Vulcano

Spent the day visiting two of the Aolian Islands – mostly Lipari which was delightful and then Vulcano which is known for its sulphur mud baths (with accompanying smells) and its black sand. Although a long day, if it is sunny I recommend a day trip to any of the islands as they evoke an even slower and more mellow pace than mainland Sicily!

The approach to the islands is very pretty.

On Lipari, each corner you turn yields a pleasing view – even on a medium sunny day

And the churches and cathedrals are plentiful too – and some very beautiful with impressive ceiling art.
