Enjoy one of the best islands in the world with delicious cuisine, rich history, and outstanding nature
Being the largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily is also one of Europe’s most attractive islands, full of contrasts and a bustling Mediterranean culture with history, architecture and exquisite cuisine being at home.
The most important attractions in Sicily are the volcanoes, which sometimes light up the night skies, but also the mountains, the coastline (1000 km) and the sea. In Sicily you never run out of things to do, whether you enjoy hiking in the mountains, skiing on Mount Etna or just sun-bathing on one of the sandy beaches, visiting ancient archaeological sites, or shopping in Palermo’s fashionable boutiques – there is something for every type of tourist.
Sicily can be compared with an open air museum, as wherever you turn there is evidence of Sicily’s rich history. Having a mild climate, Sicily can be visited all the year round and each season has its own distinctive charm.
