Aeolian islands: a song of wind and fire

0683

Contradictions are the spice of life, the opposites that complement each other to create a single, perfect being. Whoever said that choices imply exclusion had clearly never been in the Aeolian archipelago. When you choose to get married in one of these islands, you get the whole package: a variety of breathtaking sceneries, glamorous lifestyles, engaging adventures, and above all, possibilities. The Aeolian islands are a mix of fiery passion and quiet somnolence, intellectual depth and physical beauty. Fire and wind shaped these islands and their inhabitants, who share this blessed soil with volcanoes and forests, with rocky architectures and marine panoramas. Peoples from all times have been inspired by this unique, prismatic archipelago: the Greek located here both the infernal forge of Hephaestus, god of fire, and the aerial kingdom of Aeolus, god of wind. Ulysses got lost here, enchanted by the innocent beauty of nymph Calypsos and seduced by the ravishing charms of sorceress Circe. Love is intrinsic to the nature of these islands, fed and nurtured by their fiery and  breezy character.

Whether you are a perfect match of likes and dislikes, or a sparkling mix of opposites, you will find here everything you could ever wish for, both for yourselves and for your guests. You can choose to spend your time tucked away on one of the islands, or embark in a hop-on-hop-off tour to explore the infinite variations of wonder in this unique archipelago. The Aeolian islands offer unforgettable experiences for all tastes and personalities: from the adventurous trips on the top of a volcano in Stromboli to a plunge into the mysterious depths of crystalline seas; from the heavenly white cliffs of Lipari to the black sands of Vulcano; from the unique magnificence of the architecture of their villages and towns to the wild beauty of the natural reserve in Salina; from the thermal bliss of Panarea to the absolute quietness of Alicudi and Filicudi. There is no room for boredom and ennui in these “wandering island”: even their geography is in constant change, ruled by the whims and evolution of their volcanic nature. 

When you choose to exchange vows of eternal love on one of the Aeolian islands, you immerse yourself in a tradition in constant evolution, claiming your place in a millennial song of wind and fire, of passion and bliss, of seduction and love. Walking on the beaches, immersed in the warm colours of an Aeolian sunset, you will be able to feel part of this neverending story, and say, as nobel prize winner and true Sicilian poet Salvatore Quasimodo did, “I inhabited islands green on a motionless sea...”
