The Aeolian Islands, a quaint volcanic archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the northern coast of Sicily, have long been synonymous with rustic glamour.

In the 1960s, Gianni Agnelli, Aristotle Onassis, and Francis Bacon were among the first visitors to Panarea. Drawn to the island’s remoteness, clean air, and clear-blue surroundings, they helped make it the see-and-be-seen island it is now. (Last year, Uma Thurman, Mark Getty, and Princess Caroline were among its visitors.)
