The Sicily region
Sicily is the land of sun, sea and history. The land where the sky is perennially the colour of sapphire, the domain of dolphin and swordfish. The land where you can find natural settings for sport and relaxations. The land where you can feel history simply looking into the eyes of locals, living witnesses of the past dominations.
In Sicily climate oscillates between 15Â°C (January) and 40Â°C, and sometimes more, in July-August.
The beautiful and picturesque village of Centuripe is about 50 km away from Catania and is included in an archaeological, geographical and naturalistic context important worldwide. It is nicknamed 'The balcony of Sicily' due to its privileged position on many natural wonders of the island, mainly Etna, whose enjoys unparalleled views. The past of Centuripe is of exceptional importance, as evidenced by, among other things, the numerous archaeological sites scattered throughout its territory, city center and surrounding areas: necropolis, thermal ruins, furnaces for ceramics, medieval castles, Hellenistic houses ... Finally, the A19 Catania-Palermo is just minutes away, and from there you can reach all other most important areas of Central and Eastern Sicily.
