The striking colours of sponges and shell-fish as well as countless species of fish have made it a paradise for bathers, snorkelers amd divers

A honeymoon in the Aeolian Islands is a journey into paradise, which whilst becoming the reality for only those who are privileged and fortunate, will forever remain as a coveted desire and dream for many, many others
