Italy, Sicily from above

The largest of the Italian islands, Sicily is renowned for its natural and cultural beauty. The Mediterranean Sea fills the Sicilian coastline with a variety of stunning sceneries, flavors, and colors that are a treat for all your senses. The island is also filled with a treasure trove of archaeological sites left by ancient cultures, while its modern culture is just as fascinating. From visual arts, to music, to cuisine, Sicily has a wide range of cultural gems for visitors to sample. No matter what types of entertainment and relaxation you prefer, your vacation in Sicily will go above and beyond your expectations.

Sicily contains a range of breathtaking landscapes and cities with top-quality accommodations. The city of Agrigento, located in the picturesque south, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and it contains many stunning remnants from its era as a major city during the golden age of Ancient Greece. The coastal city of Catania is famous for its exciting nightlife and provides easy access to Mount Etna. You can also find several cozy hotels in the series of small islands off the Sicilian coast. These islands offer stunning views, delectable cuisine, and a wealth of historical artifacts. These islands are relatively unknown beyond Italy, so they present a quiet retreat from the bustling cities in the main island.

The landscape of Sicily is diverse. Crystalline seas surround an island dotted with towering volcanoes. Mt. Etna is the greatest active volcano in Europe and is one of the unmissable sights of a Sicily vacation. This volcano is surrounded by beautiful national parks like Madonie and Nebrodi, which welcome visitors with ideal hiking opportunities.

Many Sicilian artists make the best of this outstanding landscape by weaving natural products into their work. You can admire red coral artwork in Trapani, and artistic objects created from glazed bread in Salemi. Hand-painted tambourines and puppets are also popular. The island is a lively center for arts and crafts.

The local foods are just as appealing, so make sure to bring a hungry appetite on your vacation. The Succulent blood oranges of Sicily are delicious. Cassata cake with ricotta and almond paste is a famously delectable specialty. The extra virgin olive oil and wines- products of the rich vineyards spread over the island- are also very popular. Whether you decide to eat out in world-famous Sicilian restaurants or more casual venues, your taste buds will not be disappointed.

Visitors can explore Sicily’s ancient history through magnificent ruins scattered throughout the island. You can explore a world 2500 years old in the Valley of the Temples, or admire the late baroque architecture in the cities of the Noto Valley. For a haunting historical tour, wander through the ancient catacombs of San Giovani beneath Siracusa. Ruins of settlements from the Phoenicians, Greeks, and Romans– and many more– can be found in Sicily.

The weather in Sicily can get hot during the summer, so many choose to visit during the spring and fall, though it is also pleasant in the winter. Whenever you decide to go on your Sicily vacation, the island will reward you with breathtaking culture and beauty to last a lifetime.
