Salina is the greenest island of the Aeolian archipelago in the south Tyrrhenian Sea. Its ancient name is "Didyme" meaning "twins", that references its two twin volcanoes, which seen from a far recalls a sensual female breast. The Nature Reserve has two peaks: Monte dei Porri is 860 mts and Monte Fossa delle Felci is 962 mts, the highest mountain of the seven Aeolean islands. Salina is a green oasis with its forest of chestnut trees and its other species of mediterranean flora.
