Solomon Airlines’ hub the Henderson International Airport in Honiara (HIR) and is the official international carrier of the Solomon Islands. A scattered archipelago of some 990-odd richly forested mountainous islands and low-lying coral atolls, the Solomon Islands has been attracting international tourism since 1568 when Spanish explorer Alvaro de Mendana first sailed into this tucked away corner of the South Pacific. Mendana’s legacy can still be found in the Solomon Islands today with many of the islands still bearing the Spanish names he gave them – Santa Isabel, San Cristóbal and perhaps the most famous of all, Guadalcanal, the name synonymous with World War II which takes its name from a small township in Andalucia in southern Spain.
Things changed dramatically during World War II and the Solomon Islands became a household name when the forces of Imperial Japan invaded, the region becoming the scene for some of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific theatre and most famously the battle of Guadalcanal when thousands of Japanese and US servicemen lost their lives.
Little has changed in the Solomon Islands since then and it’s thanks to this that the Solomon Islands have become such a breathtakingly fresh destination for those international travellers hardy enough to get off the beaten track and look for a new and very different experience.

SIT Italy was founded in 1999 by Giuseppe Aloi, a native Italian entrepreneur from the southern region of Calabria, with a background in the hotel business and a vision for the future.
Giuseppe, with his Ph.D. in Business, had already traveled extensively when he joined his uncle to operate several Sicilian hotels in the early 90s. His financial knowledge helped boost the business and Giuseppe’s many American friends and acquaintances, from his visits to California, populated the hotels on a regular basis.
As the end of the millennium approached, Americans were flocking to Italy for the superior value, cultural experiences, and magnificent historical sites that the country offered. The trend continued into the 21st century and Giuseppe soon found himself arranging special vacations for travelers who wanted more than a seat in a coach, a more authentic travel experience in his fascinating homeland.
