If you’re anything like us you’ll probably have lots of travel related things you’d like to accomplish, preferably sooner rather than later! Here at MedSailors we’re unapologetically passionate about the Italian islands, and here are just a few of the locations on our Italy sailing adventure itinerary that we think are the epitome of #travelgoals!

Italian islands and what they offer - Sail away on stunning seas

Explore the Volcanic Landscape of Vulcano

Vulcano’s landscape is almost otherworldly and the true majesty of this unforgettable island only becomes clear when you experience its smoking crater and the distinctly unpleasant scent of the sulphurous odours wafting through the air. You’ll quickly forget all about the latter, with ridiculously beautiful views to take in before treating yourself to a therapeutic mud bath. You can also climb the volcanic crater, kayak the unspoilt coastline, and swim in the crystal-clear waters. Sounds pretty good, right?!

Trek Salina’s Twin Peaks on Your Italy Sailing Adventure

A duo of extinct volcanoes shape Salina’s landscape, with a combination of wildflower meadows, lush woodlands and vineyards shaping the spaces in between in the best possible ways. Salina is both laid back and bustling, ensuring there’s always something to do or somewhere peaceful to relax depending on your mood.

Relax on Peaceful Panarea on Your MedSailors Vacay

This little slice of pure paradise is difficult to capture in words alone. Explore the ruins of a bronze age settlement, stroll through charming streets where every building is adorned with beautiful flowers, and enjoy the simplicity of every sunshine filled day as you swim in the turquoise waters, tuck into ultra-fresh seafood dishes and forget about the outside world, just for a little while.

Experience the Wild, Natural Beauty of Isola Filicudi

People have called this small island home since 3,000 BCE and a morning exploring the natural beauty of this unspoilt landscape will quickly tell you why. Ancient pathways traverse the island, taking you on a journey through ancient weatherworn architecture, vineyards and olive groves, and blankets of brightly coloured wildflowers that evoke images of childhood fairy tales filled with magic and wonder.
