Hotel Mercanti di Mare, Salina, Isole Eolie
Salina, Aeolian Islands


The ancient name “Dydime”, literally “twins”, refers to the profile of the two highest mountains in the island Monte Fossa delle Felci (natural reserve) and Monte dei Porri.
The name “Salina” was given by the ancient Romans from the presence of a little salt lake in Lingua, a little fisherman’s village, that was used as a saltpan and played an important role for the economy of the island.
Salina’s island is a perfect destination for those who love the sea and the mountains, it is a pleasant place that offers breathtaking landscapes
Salina has changed in the last years adapting itself to touristic needs, indeed the number of typical restaurants, clubs and hotels have increased. Nevertheless the local inhabitants have been able to preserve the charm that since the ancient times have always characterized Salina.
Some people can remember Salina because it was the scenography of successful movies such as Il Postino, where the Pollara beach played the role of a co-star. Some others remember Salina for the beautiful seabed and for the amazing boat trips.
Nevertheless Salina is not just these aspects: the island is uncontaminated and the two main mountains, Monte Fossa delle Felci (natural reserve) and Monte dei Porri offer the possibility of amazing walks. In the island is also present a prehistoric village at Portella.

Salina “the green Island”, as it is generally called from its green mountain, is located at the center of the aeolian archipelag and receives every year the “Cinque Vele Legambiente", an award for the cleanness of its sea.
