Lipari Island in the Aeolian Islands, Italy


Italy, yacht charter

Lipari Island

The largest of the Aeolian Islands, an island archipelago tucked away in the southern corner of the Tyrrhenian Sea, Lipari Island was probably more well known in Ancient Times than today.  Having been formed by a series of volcanic eruptions, the island is littered with pumice and obsidian stone, both prized by civilizations for centuries, especially obsidian, which given the sharp glass like aspects of this stone was sought for weaponry, knives and other utensils created for cutting as needed in everyday life.  Today the mining of both stones has been stopped, as the Aeolian Islands, including Lipari are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Stop at Lipari while on a crewed yacht charter and step into yesteryear.
