The Lipari Islands lie 15 to 35 miles off the northeast side of Sicily. This volcanic chain also is known as the Aeolian Islands after the wind god, Aeolus. Some of the islands have a rich history dating back to ancient Greece; others have been sparsely populated. Food is excellent in the Lipari Islands, and local people are very hospitable. Lipari is the most populated island. The port is small and busy; the eastern slopes are cultivated. An excellent Aeolean museum exhibits remains from a dozen ages of man, from prehistoric through Phoenician, Greek, Carthaginian, Roman Byzantine, Norman and Spanish.
