Italy's Aeolian Islands

Season 1, Episode 1 of 6

Just north of Sicily's eastern coast lies a volcanic archipelago renowned for perfect weather, beautiful scenery, deep caverns, blue grottos, steep cliffs, ancient ruins, thermal healing resorts and volcanos ... including one of the most active on the planet ... erupting almost continuously for the last 2,000 years! While we went looking for islands out of time, what we found on "Italy's Aeolian Islands" was a series of unique experiences for all of the senses. From islands so isolated that there was no radio to the extremely upscale tourist destinations, we treated all of our senses to the wonders of these volcanic dots ... smelling citrus, jasmine and salt, listening to the call of fishmongers and then to the silence of the night sky, tasting incomparable Aeolian tomatoes and their beloved capers, felt mineral baths and sunshine on our skin ... and met people who welcomed us into their unique lives with generosity and care.
