The Sicily region

Sicily is the most important island of the Mediterranean. It is famous for the nature and the blue sea but also for the history, culture and food.

Taormina

Despite all negative talks about Sicilian Mafia, Sicily is a very quiet island for tourists and the Sicilians are very kind and hospitable. Sicilian cuisine is famous all over the world. In particular the pasta in all ways such as pasta with sardines, Pasta alla Norma with tomato and fried eggplants, pasta with anchovies, with pistachio and many others. The tradition also includes many ways to cook fish such as swordfish and tuna but also the so-called “azure fish” like sardines.

The desserts are also a great specialty of the Sicilians: famous cassata, ricotta-cheese desserts and ice cream and fantastic granite are famous all over the world. The coast is very beautiful and varied: sand, but also pebbles and lava rock in Catania. The car is essential because Sicily is a very large island. The climate is mild from April to November with peaks of more heat during the months of July and August. The average temperature in Spring and Autumn is 18-24 degrees while in the warmer months like July and August rises to about 28-32 with peaks up to 35. The Sicilian countryside is very beautiful and also very lush and varied (ranging from citrus and olive groves of the coast almond to pistachio groves and wheat fields of the interior of the island).
