The objectives of the Aeolian Trip were:
- Promotion of natural, cultural and gastronomic heritage.
- Strengthening relations with local institutions.
- Promotion of environmental sustainability.
- Promotion of sport and well-being.
Aeolian Trip was born from the idea of leaving an unforgettable memory to Erasmus students at the end of mobility, enhancing the natural and cultural heritage of the Aeolian Islands. A flagship for Southern Italy, worthy of the best attention from young international. A journey, a memory, that will make their experience in Italy unique.
An important opportunity for the territory because, thanks to the re-proposal of future editions of the trip, it will be possible to promote tourism in the off-season.
In addition to the enhancement of the cultural, naturalistic, gastronomic heritage, emphasis is given to Sicilian and Aeolian companies to make international students live a 360º experience in the land that has welcomed them for several months.
The project is aimed at foreign university students in mobility, members of the association ESN - Erasmus Student Network and all volunteers of Due Sicilie Coordination.
The trip was 4 days and 3 nights on the island of Vulcano, where the main activities took place: 2 themed parties, entertainment on the beach, kayaking, and a boat trip. A whole day was then dedicated to a mini cruise to visit the islands of Panarea and Stromboli. On the mini cruise was then offered a tasting of typical Sicilian products during the phenomenon of "sciara di fuoco".
