Take a tour of Island of Lipari in Lipari, Italy – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
The Aeolian Islands are a chain of Italian islands located north of the island of Sicily.
The largest island of the Aeolian chain is Lipari, which is also the name of the island's main town.
Though not large, Lipari is a beautiful locale with great ocean views and lovely homes and buildings.
The islands here were created by volcanic activity, resulting in a large amount of volcanic stone in the area.
Before the widespread use of metals, obsidian, a type of volcanic glass, is fairly common here.
Lipari has had a tumultuous and often violent past, but it continues to endure, thrive, and even attract new visitors.
