The Sicily region
Sicily has been the golden heart of the Mediterranean from early time, many people invaded the island from Phoenician to Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, and Spanish……leaving behind monuments and treasures to remind us of the past. The diversity can be seen in the different areas the Island of Morzia one of the oldest Phonecian settlements, Segeste, Selinunte, Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and Siracusa with its major Greek influence. In Palermo we have the perfect example of the Norman period with the Monreale cathedral. In the centre one of the most important villas during the Roman period is Roman Casale at Piazza Amerina.
In January, in the deep midwinter the average temperatures on the coast should still be hovering around the 10 deg.C . By February – March the days are starting to get warmer, although conditions in the mountains are still very wintery but along the coast winter is truly over.
April the wild flowers begin to truly explode all over Sicily and on the coast the first bathers start taking to the waters. The interior is spectacular, with the mountain slopes exploding in colour and the temperatures ideal for walking. By May the temperatures on the coast and in the islands will now be extremely comfortable.
June the first feel of summer by July the sea is the focus of the majority of tourist, the temperature is perfectly, at times quite hot.
August is the hottest month, Italian holiday time, people go the coast which become quite crowded.
September: Temperatures remain very comfortable everywhere, and the coast and islands retain that summer feeling, but without the crowds.
October is the most beautiful periods for country walking. Seasonal rainfalls help develop an astonishing variety of mushrooms.
The highest rainfall is generally in the month of November though the big storms that often sweep the Italian peninsula
In December the temperatures are around 10°C still have extremely agreeable temperatures during the days, though the sunlight hours are clearly at their lowest of the year.
Sicily has superb monuments from the Greek period, including the temples of Agrigento, Selinunte, Segesta, the theatre of Siracusa, and archeological museums (Palermo, Agrigento, Siracusa) filled with outstanding exhibits. The Roman period is represented by the amphitheatres of Siracusa and Taormina and the superb Villa del Casale in Piazza Armerina.
Successive foreign dominations in Sicily greatly influenced local cuisine, varying and altering its characteristics, without completely eradicating the traditional Sicilian cooking style. As a result, echoes of Greek, Arab, Norman and Spanish cuisine are very much part of Sicilian cooking today. Sicilian cuisine tends to be full of herbs and spices that give it a distinctly exotic flavour.
The same imaginative approach that distinguishes Sicilian cooking is also found in traditional native dress (costumes are elaborately trimmed in lace and embroidery) and the famous carretti (brightly painted wooden carts, whose subjects are often folk tales and legends). The Museo Etnografico of Palermo, founded by one of Italy's major folklore experts, Giuseppe Pitre, is the most important of its kind on the island. Mention should also be made of the typical Sicilian tradition of the cantastorie (men who go from one village to another chanting local stories and legends) and the Teatro dei Pupi, marvellous marionettes that for centuries have allowed people to relive the exploits of the heroes in their struggle against the Moors.
