Trace tremendous history
Sicily was once a part of Greece and there are plenty of well-preserved ancient sites that can still be explored today. The iconic Valley of the Temples is the perfect example of this and it’s one of the seven impressive UNESCO-stamped sites right here on the island. History-buffs, this one’s for you.
Italian cuisine is made up of velvety pasta dishes, flavour-packed pizzas and sweet scoops of gelato, but here in Sicily, it gets an island twist. The freshest fish and seafood and lemon-laced treats top trattoria menus and you just can’t miss out on sampling a handful of renowned Sicilian arancini from a street food vendor!
The cool coastline
White-sand beaches, secluded coves and warm aquamarine waters. Sound like your bag? This pretty part of Italy has all that and more. From Cefalù to Taormina, you’re bound to find your own little slice of beach heaven. Island-hopping’s also on the cards as the stunning Aeolian archipelago floats just off the north coast.
