The blog over the past several weeks has been full of Keith’s beautiful photos of our trip to Sicily. But I figured I might share my Instagram photos as well – sort of a highlight of different parts of the trip.
The first of three weeks was spent on Lipari, one of the Aeolian Islands just off the coast of Sicily. When I began researching our 3 week trip, these islands didn’t make my radar. I scoured books, travel sites, etc. wanting to make the most of our time in Sicily. Finally after reading as much as Trip Advisor could muster on the subject (yes my go to site – I LOVE travel reviews and definitely use this site in trying to make the most educated decision I can) I had narrowed it down. Lipari it was. And believe me the only thing we regret about going to this little group of islands is that we didn’t stay longer. So much more to explore.
Islands visited: Lipari, Vulcano, Panarea and Stromboli. Next time we will spend time on Filicudi or Alicudi – more remote and beautiful in their simplicity. (We returned to mainland Sicily (funny to say that since Sicily itself is an island) by ferry from Lipari to Palermo by way of Filicudi and Alicudi. So we were able to catch a glimpse of their quaintness. I had read a bit about their beauty but the stop on each confirmed the rumors! Maybe a good spot for a honeymoon??)
Ciao Eolie. Thank you Trip Advisor for confirming this spot was well worth a visit!
