Description Three days symposium, and after that, four days in tour around the volcanic Archipelago of the Eolian Islands. A wonderful bunch of isles, which offers plenty of clear waters, astonishing landscapes, warm-hearted people and heavenly food. Among the islands ten miles long crossings will bear us from isle to isle.

Give a look at the gallery of the symposium website, the islands have black sand beaches, and three of them are still active volcanoes.
The tour around the islands will end with the climbing of Stromboli, the 8500 ft high active volcano.
Do not underestimate the power of the Sicilian gods of the sea!
