Alicudi - unspoilt island in the Mediterranean

Alicudi is the least known and remotest of the seven Eolian Islands.

Quick Facts:

  • Size: 5.1 km²
  • Population: ca. 100 
  • Height: 675 m
  • Road network of cobbled streets and paths, mostly in steps
  • No cars
  • UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site

People live on 3 different levels: at sea level around the harbour, in the villages Vallone and Tonna half way up the mountain (ca. 250 m above sea level), and in the upper region with the villages Pianicello and St. Bartholo (420 m above sea level).


A holiday on Alicudi takes you into another time and space. The high season lasts from end of June to beginning of September. This is when the only hotel and the only bar on the island are open, and shopping in one of the two shops might take a little bit longer.


The rest of the time, Alicudi is a place of pure peace and quiet. The rhythm of the day is dictated by the arrival of the two hovercrafts, one in the morning, one in the evening, and the ship at midday.
