A captivating blend of history and nature
Mediterranean sunshine, beautiful nature, a fascinating culture, ancient traditions. Sicily has it all: art, nature, history, beaches, food... an inexhaustible source of delight and wonder.
Thousands of years of invasion and cultural integration have made Sicily a breath taking collage of European and Mediterranean civilizations. The evidence is in the land, the architecture, the language and cuisine, the religion and the traditions.
All of Sicily is an open air museum. As you wander through its cities, villages, farms, beaches and ruins, you'll find yourself in Ancient Greece one moment, North Africa the next. Or perhaps Renaissance Italy, or the Roman Empire. The people here are proud and friendly, as conscious of their past as they are of the present. The Sicilian dialect itself still bears traces of Spanish, French and Greek.
Be prepared to taste your way through history as well, from the richest antipasti, indigenous varieties of pasta, cous cous, fresh fish and remarkably good sausages, strong local cheese, amazing pastries, and the best fruit and vegetables, which you can sometimes pick yourself on the public land. Sicily has made the best out of its native vines too. For those who love wines a visit to a local winery is a must.
The island's beauty is astounding. It is a land of mountains, vineyards, olive groves and forests. Climb Europe's greatest active volcano, or enjoy the sun-soaked beaches. Explore ancient temples by day, and indulge in the most extraordinary meals in the evening.
Whatever your preference, Sicily is an inexhaustible source of delight and wonder. Mediterranean sunshine, beautiful nature, a fascinating culture, ancient traditions. Come and immerse yourself in a world that will thrill your senses and captivate your imagination.
