PANAREA: THE REGAL ISLAND
A striking, intriguing island, enveloped in a romantic atmosphere where everything is magical, harmonious and seductive
The smallest of the Aeolian Islands is an oasis in the Mediterranean, white and bright and embraced all round by a cortège of multiform rocks. This piece of land blessed by nature has become a paradise for man. It presents itself as an elegant island, sophisticated, always aware of the latest trends and a focal point for the organization of summer evenings in the archipelago. At dusk, a magical and mysterious atmosphere infects the localities scattered throughout the island, myriads of candles light up the night initiating the nightlife which continues without interruption until the dawn. The next day, while lovers of the stars are sleeping, the island wakes up to pay tribute to the sun, and returns to stand majestic in all its dazzling beauty. The visit to the prehistoric village will allow you to journey into the remote darkness of past centuries and savour and experience life in the Bronze Age. A visit to the Archaeological Museum will show you – through the historical finds that years of patient excavation have returned to the light – the traces of the passage of ancient populations. Fill your holiday with unforgettable moments. Discover the island on foot, walking through the green fields and dry stone walls up to its highest point, the Punta del Corvo (420 meters), where you will hear the silence of nature, broken only by the cry of seagulls. From there you will find breath-taking views: from the costal rocks to the small local islets and farther small islands such as Stromboli in the distance. On the beach of Calcara you can find the indelible mark of the volcanic nature of the area: a burning, multi-coloured landscape created by the fumaroles and vapours that rise from the cracks near the sea. Enjoy every moment of your vacation, breathe the fresh air filled with the perfume of the islands flowers. All of Panarea is a garden, dressing and adorning the beautiful white houses. Encounter the branches of bougainvillea while walking the narrow streets of the three villages on the island: San Pietro, Ditella and Drautto. The streets are very narrow and since there is not enough room for cars, people use electric vehicles for the longer journeys. Explore down to the sea and discover the coast of the island, its rocky ravines, its cliffs shaped by the wind and the sea, unspoiled landscapes, wild, where silence reigns with only the sound of the sea composing an unforgettable soundtrack for your holiday. Panarea is a land rich in charm and appeal, an earthly paradise of unreal beauty suspended between sky and sea, surrounded by a series of rocks that enhance its beauty. Here the sunsets are magical, almost unreal sunrises and starry nights evoke an atmosphere of other times, arousing sensations never experienced previously.
