Welcome to Sicily

From the sea to the mountains and countryside, from the volcanos to the fishing villages, there are really many reasons why to visit Sicily.

As Frederick II, King of Sicily, once said: “I don’t envy God’s paradise, because I’m well satisfied to live in Sicily”.

Which are the stages you cannot miss in a trip to Sicily?

The places to mention would be so many but the top ten of the most emblematic places in the region cannot but include:

1. Taormina: An asylum for artists, in a panoramic position between the sea and the mountains, it’s a refined town, that holds amazing treasures, like its incredible Greek Theatre

2. Ragusa Ibla: it’s the oldest quarter in the city of Ragusa, that rises from the top of a hill in the Hyblaean Mountains, boasting more than fifty churches and noble palaces

3. Scala dei Turchi: with its white cliff rising above the blue sea is among the most beautiful beaches all over Sicily

4. Aeolian Islands: seven islands, one different from another, with dreamy beaches and coves and two active volcanoes where to go trekking

5. Syracuse and the island of Ortigia: an extraordinary art city with one of the largest archaeological areas in the Mediterranean

6. Palermo: from the Norman to the Arab style, from the Greek to the Spanish attestations, the capital of the region is a melting pot of cultures and a place of lively street markets

7. Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples: the city is a popular destination thanks to its perfectly kept archaeological park, the biggest in the world

8. Noto: it’s the unquestioned capital of the Sicilian Baroque, with an artistic heritage made of stunning churches and palaces

in addition to the Baroque cities Noto, Modica and Ragusa, the Aeolian Islands, the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and Syracuse with the rock-cut Necropolis of Pantalica, this prestigious award was obtained also by mount Etna – being one of the most symbolic and active volcanos in the world -, the Villa Romana del Casale, in Piazza Armerina, e il Arab-Norman Palermo and the Cathedral churches of Cefalù and Monreale, an itinerary through the Norman-Arab history of great artistic value.

Sicily (Italian: Sicilia [siˈtʃiːlja]; Sicilian: Sicilia [sɪˈʃiːlja]) is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the 20 regions of Italy. It is one of the five Italian autonomous regions and is officially referred to as Regione Siciliana. The region has 5 million inhabitants. Its capital city is Palermo.

The island is drained by several rivers, most of which flow through the central area and enter the sea at the south of the island. The Salso flows through parts of Enna and Caltanissetta before entering the Mediterranean Sea at the port of Licata. To the east, the Alcantara flows through the province of Messina and enters the sea at Giardini Naxos, and the Simeto, which flows into the Ionian Sea south of Catania. Other important rivers on the island are the Belice and Platani in the southwest.
