Right in the heart of the Mediterranean, Sicily is a land of legends. Whether these are the legends of ancient poets such as Homer and Virgil, the legendary cooking which awaits you in one of the region’s many restaurants, or the legendary sight of Mount Etna looming over the east coast, Sicily is home to stories, seductive tastes and sublime sights.
Sicily is mountainous and volcanic, and surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea. With a landscape both rugged and enclosed in sparkling waters, Sicily is a perfect destination for both outdoor adventurers and sun lovers alike. The two main cities are Palermo and Catania and a trip wouldn’t be complete without a journey into these cities’ bustling marketplaces. History lovers should pay a visit to classical Syracuse and for a volcanic hike head to Mount Stromboli. Sicily has many ways you can spend your time in the sun and the beaches are particularly stunning.
