Fashion designers, jetsetters and aficionados of stunning nature are flocking to the Aeolian Islands, a volcanic archipelago located off the coast of northern Sicily. Jutting out of the Tyrrhenian Sea, these pearls of the Mediterranean are a Unesco World Heritage Site. The isles are named for Aeolus, the keeper of the winds in Greek mythology who mischievously blew Odysseus back to the island’s rocky shores when he tried to return home.
