When you’re holidaying in the Italian countryside or along the coast, we highly recommend you add a few nights to holiday in Italy’s islands as they are stunningly scenic. Head to the laidback Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily to immerse yourself in picturesque bays and volcanic backdrops.
Even if you’re short on time, be sure to take a day trip to visit popular attractions, such as the glowing Blue Grotto of Capri or medieval Castello Aragonese in Ischia, both just a ferry hop away from Naples. With over 80 islands surrounding the mainland, you will never tire of choosing a Citalia island holiday in Italy.
