Principe di Salina is a place where you can hang your towel and when you return you'll feel right at home. Grazie Millie Principe, our family had such an amazing stay and every meal was incredible. All your special touches do not go unnoticed. We are grateful to have had such a loving experience with your family, and Grazie for making us feel like family.

The closest airports are Catania, Palermo, and Naples. Catania Fontanarossa (CTA) is the closest and suggested airport.
We spent the night in Milazzo - took the boat to Salina
Boat to Salina - the arrival time of your flight should not be later than 3 pm. On your day of departure, please make sure to book your flight after 11 am to ensure enough time to get off the island and reach the airport. If you manage to depart in the afternoon, you will have a more comfortable commute.

Rental cars, scooters, bicycles – Organization of boat trips to other islands, or rent your own boat (you will need a boating license) –The hotel will inform you where to rent these boats. Organization of excursions and trekking – Wine cellar visits – Transfer to and from the Catania-Transfer from the airport and from the port. You can also enjoy snorkeling or diving activities.
WHAT TO PACK
You won't need much but think flowing caftans for that island breeze with a touch of elegance. Sun protection, a hat, shorts and simple dresses. Pack your sneakers if you like to hike, run or walk. A good book, but they have plenty there.
Kids of all ages are welcome, but the hotel can only accommodate two tots at a time, so book well in advance. The restaurant has a highchair and the chef is happy to adapt the evening menu and heat up baby food. The infinity pool is six meters deep.
Ask the front desk, they have the best suggestions. We had most of our meals there, we preferred to enjoy the hotel and Silvana's cooking! Why leave?
