Best Secret Italian Islands

Travel & Leisure gives their list of fabulous hidden getaways...

You don’t even need a sailing boat or luxury yacht to reach these lesser-known hideaways. Hop over to Sicily and take a hyper-efficient aliscafo, or fast ferry, to the Aegadian islands, a delightfully tranquil group that includes Marettimo and Favignana.

It’s just as easy to get to Filicudi, Salina, Stromboli and Panarea, all part of the Aeolian Islands—a group north of Sicily that is named after Aeolus, the mythical ruler of the winds. You can be sure of an invigorating breeze, but also plenty of sun and sea, and that all-important laid-back island vibe. View the Slideshow on Travel and Leisure…
