Sicily

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the 20 regions of Italy. Located just off the “toe” of Italy’s boot, this island is rich in history and has many places of interest to visit from the Valley of the Temples to the Cappella Palatina, a former royal chapel in capital city Palermo. On Sicily’s eastern edge is Mount Etna, one of Europe’s highest active volcanoes.

Sicily is considered to be  one of the pearls of Southern Italy. The island is split into 5 provinces: Palermo (regional capital), Agrigento, Catania, Caltanissetta, Enna, Messina, Ragusa, Siracusa and Trapani.

There are many places of interest to visit including Etna, the greatest active volcano in Europe. This is one of the fundamental stops for those wanting to discover this region. Its spectacular eruptions have created unique landscapes over the centuries. As well as the diverse nature and the beaches of Sicily, there are many islands scattered around. They are all charming islands but it is the Aeolian Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, that deserves to be mentioned. The archipelago comprises seven islands – Lipari, Vulcano, Stromboli, Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi and Panarea – as well as a series of islets and rocks of smaller dimension. The history of the Aeolian Islands are clearly bound to the Volcanoes. Here you can plunge into the deep blue of the sea, make excursions to visit the many caves scattered along the coasts, relax on the small beaches lapped by crystal-clear waters and enjoy the delicious local food and fish dishes.
