The hotel’s cellar contains carefully selected wines of vintage that come from every part of Italy, but also from many other European regions. Special attention is given to small producers of the region.

Hotel Signum SPA is the perfect place to regain energy, vitality and lust for life amidst Aeolian’s abundant nature. Its structure follows the lines of old Eolian thermal baths, believed to be the most ancient in all Europe. Steam baths take place inside a “Thermal Stove”, inspired by the one of Saint Calogero in Lipari, built over 3500 years ago.
