Trade the hustle and bustle of the mainland for eight soul-soothing days immersed in the agrarian coziness of Sicily. On this unique Local Living departure, you’ll get an up-close-and-personal glimpse of everyday life on this laidback island from three different yet equally charming towns, with five of the nights in a comfortable apartment. By day, you’ll stroll the streets of baroque Catania, the beautiful fishing village of Acitrezza, and the tiny, volcano-ringed Lipari—considered by some to be the 'Sicilian Santorini'. Pleasant seaside strolls? Volcano hikes? Kayaking excursions? Loads of downtime? Why leave?

Day 1 Catania

Arrive at any time.

Day 2 Lipari

Take in the sights and sounds of Sicily's biggest fish market in the morning before taking the ferry to the Aeolian Islands. Settle into your fully equipped apartment and home base for the next five nights, located at the end of Canetto Beach on Lipari Island. Each apartment is equipped with a basic kitchen, balcony, bathroom, towels and linens.

Day 3 Lipari (1D)

Start your day off right with an included starter kit of breakfast essentials and local delicacies. Familiarize yourself with the area and its offerings or just lounge on the beach. In the evening, enjoy a dinner of regional specialiities with local friends.

Day 4-6 Lipari

Do as much or as little as you like during your stay in the Aeolian Islands. Opt to climb the volcano next door on Vulcano Island, kayak the gentle sea, set off on one of many day hikes available on Lipari, take off on a day trip to other islands by boat, shop the boutiques of Lipari's main town, visit the vineyards of a local wine producer or chill out on the beach or your apartment's balcony. If you're up for some excitement, the island of Stromboli, which is accessible by boat, boasts an active volcano that puts on a fiery show each evening.

Day 7 Acitrezza

Leave the Aeolian Islands and transfer to the small Sicilian fishing village of Acitrezza where you'll spend your final evening as a group together.

Day 8 Acitrezza

Depart at any time. Acitrezza is located 10 km from Catania.
