Catania and the Aeolian Islands Cruise

Cruise off the Coast of Sicily

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation in Sicily, perhaps as a honeymoon or special summer vacation in Italy, then you will love our Catania and the Aeolian Islands cruise, which takes you on a tranquil 7-night experience along the Sicilian coast.

The Aeolian Islands are a group of islands that lie north of Sicily in the Tyrrhenian Sea. They are of volcanic origin and are a popular tourist destination in the summer months thanks to the warm climate and stunning landscapes.

This Catania and the Aeolian Islands multi centre 7-night holiday takes you on a cruise between these stunning natural islands and an example itinerary can be found below. Please remember that we do customise all our packages to the needs of our customers so, if you would like to change any of the details, just ask!
