The village a stone’s throw from the Aeolian Islands
Nestled in the beautiful scenery of the Tyrrhenian coast, a few steps from the Aeolian Islands, is Capo d'Orlando Marina. Legend has it that the site was founded at the time of the Trojan War. Originally a fishing village, it has now become a modern, lively destination with strong tourist appeal.
The “Capo” is a sheer cone of rock on the coast, punctuated by beaches of fine, white sand that alternate with bizarrely shaped rocks. According to tradition, it was Emperor Charlemagne who named it “d'Orlando” in honour of his famous paladin. The “Cave del Mercadante”, circular carvings made in the sandstone emerging from the water, are very impressive.
In 2017, the area was enhanced by the Capo d'Orlando Marina, a modern space of over 180,000 square metres, with infrastructure inspired by modern bio-architecture. Between the exclusive suites, the Yacht Club, the restaurant with outdoor spaces and the transparent dome, it will be a pleasure to stroll among the shops along the quayside, perhaps at night under a starry sky.
