Visiting the Aolean Islands one day in the summer.
We left at the crack of dawn and had to look for the port at Tropea, which one would have thought easy to find from where we would be leaving. Our boat was very nice, with a great crew and clean facilities.
The islands are Unesco world heritage sites and fall under the regional rule of Sicily, though the islands have their own municipalities. Only one island has natural sweet water and that is Salina, the other islands depend on main land Italy but mostly Sicily for their fresh water.
