One of my favorite places in the world, everywhere is different and full of surprises. You will not be able to understand Sicily only in one trip, this is a place you must come back always. Explore the main cities, the beautiful islands and the beaches.

In June 2009 my wife and I drove around the western horn of Sicily. Our vacation included plenty of time at the beach, Greek temples, medieval villages, Phoenician ruins and lots of seafood. Sicily is a tropical paradise with a culture all its own.

Sicily puts its own enigmatic spin on what it means to be Italian, with its fusion of culinary traditions, east-meets-west architecture, and layered history. Ancient ruins and vineyards vie with crumbling seaside villages for your attention. One place to start: the beach at San Vito Lo Capo near Trapani, where you can soak up the island’s intense sunshine.
Where to Stay: Check in to Grand Hotel Timeo for its spectacular views of Mount Etna and proximity to the ancient city of Taormina, or rent a villa on the island’s western coast.

The term "southern hospitality" applies to the southern island of Sicily too. I met the most warm hearted people during my stay, maybe due to the amount of sunshine they're lucky to recieve. Everyone was happy to share with me all of their Sicilian traditions, stories and good eats! The islands land and seascape is enough to make you want to go, but the people are what made it a perfect destination for me!

You have not seen Italy until you have been to Sicily! The food is amazing...the best cannoli, "local fish", colorful vegetables, refreshing granita, fresh citrus, excellent pizza. The locals are happy, friendly, and welcoming. Big cities, quaint villages, upscale resorts, volcanos, Greek ruins, incredible arts and cultural opportunities....It's all here!

I loved the ancient cliffs of Sicily's beaches, the black rocks and the blue water, the women (nearly as old as the beaches) but still clambering up and down the cliffs like it's nothing. Island tastes like tuna egg pasta (bottarga) and creamy cannoli cast a culinary spell, their main competition the greek temples rising to the sky in a tribute to the glory of forgotten gods.

La maggiore, in ogni senso, isola del Mediterraneo, offre a piene mani ogni delizia per il corpo e per lo spirito. Una storia plurimillenaria ha lasciato tracce delle varie dominazioni, senza intaccare la sua vera identità.
Lo splendore dell'arte araba si è fusa con quella dei Normanni. La natura poi le ha donato a piene mani ogni fantastico panorama si possa immaginare e molti ancora di inaspettati.

Sicily is simply fantastic. surely my favourite region in Italy. And so often not so famous worldwide. Sicily is permeated with history, from Phoenicians to Ethrurian, from Romans to Greeks... There are all around very well preserved ruins of ancient constructions, temples, theaters..... Sicily has a beautiful sea and beaches, in fact not everywhere but mainly in the surrounding islands, such as Eolie, Pelagie and Egadi. Food is absolutely a crazy experience, from breakfast to dinner.... Very reach and tasty dishes. Life is slow, landscape are marvellous. People are so original and, once you have become a friend they will be forever. I love this place and its people.
