Alicudi is the second smallest of the seven, the wildest and the most remote. There is only one hotel (with the island's only restaurant), a few houses and very few shops.... a paradise for people in search of complete quiet and relaxation.
If your goal is to really get away from it all, Alicudi just might be your dream destination. As isolated a place as you'll find in the entire Mediterranean basin, its main settlement has minimal facilities and no roads. Transportation here means boats and mules – you'll see the latter hauling goods up and down the steep stone steps from the port the minute you disembark.
