Sicilia

Sicily is a sun-drenched, open-air museum offering the romantic allure of an island paradise and a blend of cultures that have left their marks over the years.
Crystal-clear seas, history around every corner, the smell of lemons , locals loudly chitchatting. Discover this and so much more on this delightful island.

Travelling along the coastal roads lined with oleanders and prickly pears, you will see a variety of spectacular panoramic views from all three of this island’s sides.

This is a land of myths and legends, from Polyphemus to Scylla and Charybdis. Sicily seduces you, a bewitching, mysterious place.

Renowned for its superior food and wine, Sicily has bequeathed the food world with an enormous variety of complex and sophisticated specialties that are flavourful and traditional.

Sicily’s conquerors were many and diverse, never leaving the island isolated: Phoenicia, Greeks, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, the Capetian House of Anjou, Spaniards, and Bourbons.

Sicily was enticing for the world’s greatest rulers because of its strategic position in the centre of the Mediterranean, mild climate and beauty.

Each population left its mark that lives on even today, making this island a unique model of harmonious integration.

Arancine (fried, stuffed rice balls), cannolis, panelle (chickpea fritters), pasta alla norma (eggplant, tomatoes, and salted ricotta), cassata (ricotta cheese-filled cake), pistachio nuts from Bronte, couscous, chocolate from Modica , granita (semi-frozen dessert), and brioche pastries. This impressive list could go on and on if it included the many culinary specialties already famous and prepared worldwide.

But eating these dishes in some far-flung corner of the world is not the same as in Sicily. There’s nothing better than nibbling an arancina while gazing over the Straits of Messina as dolphins play and show off or munching a spleen sandwich while winding through Palermo’s vibrant, lively street markets.

A vacation lives on through keepsakes, photos, and souvenirs.

Strolling through the narrow streets of Taormina, with the sea always in sight, you will find many artisan shops and trendy boutiques.

Head to Caltagirone and you will discover instead the finest in colourful ceramics: vases, plates, and tiles crafted by hand from unique, unequalled designs.

Sicily is also the homeland of Domenico Dolce, the stylist and founder of Dolce & Gabbana, who brought to the catwalks clothes printed with the island’s symbols, including traditional carts, citrus fruits, and sweets.

There are few places in the world in which you can marvel at a snow-capped active volcano on one side and the gleaming Mediterranean Sea on the other side. It won’t be easy to choose between the black sand of the small island of Vulcano and the white, rocky cliffs of the Scala dei Turchi.

You might opt instead for a hike up the Stromboli volcano to the crater in order to check out volcanic fragments called lapilli. Or maybe simply a happy hour on a boat? When in doubt, we recommend a sure bet. Watch the sunset from Marsala’s salt marshes where the sun meets the horizon and then plunges in the water.

Sicily is not only historical sites and fantastic food but also the ultimate playground, particularly for sports enthusiasts.

Feel the rush of parachuting into the bright blue sea off Siracusa or Catania. Kitesurf and windsurf on the Tyrrhenian Sea from Capo Peloro to Mondello and in the south at Marina di Ragusa.

Hike on Etna along six paths. You can even ski on Etna in the winter. And for seafarers, above all sailors, take advantages of the centres in Ortigia and Trapani.

Healing waters, mud baths, and caves have therapeutic properties that help reduce stress.

The thermal baths in Sciacca have been renowned since the days when the ancient Greeks roamed the island. The sulphur-rich waters and the unusual natural caves that give off geothermal gas have been used for health purposes. The caves, called the Stufe di San Calogero (Stoves of San Calogero), are tucked in the summit of Monte Kronio. Legend has it that Daedalus discovered the caves when fleeing from Crete.

Also linked to Greek mythology are Segesta’s thermal baths located between Alcamo and Castellammare del Golfo in the Trapani province.

Sicily is the island that never sleeps, thanks to its vibrant nightlife.

Let’s start with the lively Ballarò market that in the evening turns into an open-air discotheque, not to mention the inexpensive bars! Mark in your calendar the theatrical season showcasing Greek tragedies in the transcendent beauty of Siracusa’s Greek theatre. In Taormina, concerts and a famous film festival take place in the city’s beguiling ancient theatre that offers magnificent views of the bay. For the little ones and not only, hit Etnaland in the Catania province. The largest amusement park in southern Italy is a water park, zoo, and prehistoric park all in one.

Catholic religious festivals are an important part of Sicily’s cultural heritage. Among the most emblematic are those in honour of a city’s patron saint, namely Saint Agatha in Catania, Saint Rosalia in Palermo, and Saint Lucia in Siracusa.

Pilgrims flock to the Saint Rosalia sanctuary, built inside a cave on Mount Pellegrino. This sacred spot looks out over Palermo presenting a spectacular panorama in which the sky and sea seem to become one.

A pilgrimage to the Tindari sanctuary is also a transforming experience, especially for the presence of the black Madonna and the breathtaking views of Marinello’s natural reserve with the Aeolian islands in the background.
