Sicily off the beaten track
Apart from the highlights which deserve to be on the itinerary, it is worth indulging into ‘normal’ life in Sicily. There is no need to go far from your hotel to enjoy local food, romantic squares, beautiful churches and even archeological and natural gems.
Palermo, Catania, Syracuse
Palermo is the capital of Sicily and has a rich history with many Norman-Arab influences. Syracuse was once the capital of ancient Greece and has a fabulous archeologic park. Catania is also called the “Milan of the south” and has the amazing backdrop of Mt. Etna Vulcano.
Aeolian and Egadi islands
The Aeolian islands are named after the god of the winds and therefore great sailing grounds. All are volcanic islands. Stromboli being famous for regular eruptions and Panarea for the jet-set spending long summer nights on the island. On the western side of Sicily the Egadi islands are worth a visit.
Valley of the temples
Sicily’s most famous archeological site is the valley of the Temples in Agrigento. It is a Unesco World heritage site and features some of worlds best preserved Greek temples dating from over 2000 years ago. A must-see for who is staying in this part of Sicily.
The magical town of Taormina, with spectacular views Mount Etna and the coastline below, has enchanted visitors from all over the world for centuries. Beautiful by day, in the evenings Taormina’s atmosphere is bewitching. Take in the breathtaking panorama over dinner in one of Taormina’s restaurants, indulge in some shopping or sip an aperitif while watching the evening ‘passeggiata’.
Europe’s highest active Volcano with it’s smoking peak at over 3000 meters high is a true land mark for the island. The mineral rich soil is ideal for grapes an olives and many wineries have been established on this fertile land. Every so often an eruption can be seen with the orange glow of lava lighting up the sky or more explosive lava fountains. Mount Etna is alive and ever changing.
Step into the world of Sicilian aristocracy and feast in the evocative atmosphere of a torch lit castle, a refined villa or grand palazzo. Sicily is full of private palaces that are rarely open to the public. Opening the doors to these places in Palermo and Catania gives you the opportunity to relive these times. A warm welcome by a princess or duchess can be an unforgettable moment.
