Vacations & Travel - - Travel Talk -

Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal tour spe­cial­ist Peter Som­mer Trav­els has re­vealed its new gulet cruise itin­er­ary, ex­plor­ing the stun­ning Ae­o­lian Is­lands in Italy. Launch­ing in the north­ern sum­mer of 2017, the seven-day voy­age ex­plores the mag­nif­i­cent vol­canic ar­chi­pel­ago off the north coast of Si­cily. Hosted by his­to­rian and ar­chae­ol­o­gist Dr Michael Met­calfe, the cruise will of­fer a great com­bi­na­tion of the Mediter­ranean’s beau­ti­ful scenery with fine lo­cal food and wine, and fas­ci­nat­ing an­cient his­tory. Renowned as a re­laxed and lux­u­ri­ous re­treat for Italy’s rich and fa­mous, the is­lands are also home to ar­chae­o­log­i­cal sites from the an­cient cul­tures of South­ern Italy, each one with its own vi­brant iden­tity. High­lights in­clude the spec­tac­u­lar food and wines of ver­dant Salina, the vol­canic Strom­boli, with its smok­ing crater, hik­ing trails and fiery lava flow­ing down to sea, the sparsely pop­u­lated Filicudi with its Bronze-age vil­lage, and the islet of Basiluzzo where guests will en­joy a rest­ful morn­ing of swim­ming, kayak­ing, read­ing, sun­bathing and ex­plor­ing the lo­cal Ro­man her­itage. pe­ter­som­
