Island Ustica - Sicily

Ustica

Located about 35 miles off the coast of Sicily, this is a charming place to visit by boat because of its historic beauty as well as particularly memorable seabed which is among the most beautiful in Europe.

The Romans called it "Ustum", because of the lava rocks that dominates the landscape. To old Greeks, who gave up six thousand enemies Carthaginians it was known as "Osteodes".

Today the island is often nicknamed the "Turtle" because of the shape of its small coastline with many caves such as the Grotta Azzurra, the Cave of Gold, the Secret Cave, the Green Cave and the Cave of the Thunder.

Levanzo

The smallest island of the Aegean archipelago, with a land surface of just 5 km2.
