HOLIDAYS TO SICILY
As the largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily has a rich history, culture and world-class gastronomy. Just off the ‘toe’ in the ‘boot’ of Italy, the island is home to many cultural and natural treasures, including the Valley of the Temples and Mount Etna. Its bustling cities, such as Sicily’s capital Palermo and Catania, are the perfect places to soak up the culture over an authentic Sicilian meal before relaxing in your luxury hotel.
Away from the colourful cities, Sicily’s ancient villages give way to sandy beaches and rocky coves. Giardini-Naxos, near the hilltop town of Taormina, is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the region, but every beach in Sicily is a dream for swimmers and divers. The island’s dramatic and varied landscape makes it perfect for hiking and other activities. Wander along the coast or in the shadow of a volcano, or just relax on the beach or by the pool in your Italian hotel. If you are eager to delve into the island’s history, there is no shortage of fascinating heritage sites. Evidence of bygone civilisations can be found throughout Sicily, such as at Agrigento, Syracuse and the Rocky Necropolis of Pantalica and the baroque towns of the Val di Noto.
