Hippy Chic Shopping on the Aeolien Islands

During our cruise, we stopped at Panarea and Stromboli, two very ‘hippy chic‘ cities located on the Aeolien islands, the volcanic archipelago situated just north of Sicily.. and which in my opinion are the best kept holiday secret of the Italians!

The volcano on Stromboli is still active.. emotion guaranteed..

Both cities are full of super nice shops, affordable and offering either local or indie ‘hippy chic‘ style of clothes & objects.

The must do over here is to buy sandals..which will be made on the spot for you in the shop. You just choose the model, the leather (they have tons of different leather from ostrich to snake.. to normal leather ;).. and they just made it for you. For 40 eur, which I thought was quite a reasonable price.

Each cities/islands have a ‘candles onlypolicy at night: there is no electricity (and no car, except for a few cabs) so the whole city is lighten up by candles after sunset! One of the best ambiance I ever experienced!

And the view on the active volcano adds a little touch a mystery to the night.. It was wonderful! Go there one day if you can.. all of you!
