About this location
The Sicily region
Sicily is the largest of the Italian islands, separated from the Continent by the Strait of Messina and surrounded by the Ionian, the Tyrrhenian and the Mediterranean Seas.
It is one of the pearls of Southern Italy and can be discovered, understood and experienced through a series of itineraries dedicated to areas of interest ranging from nature to history and traditions.
Nature seems to have endowed all its wonders to this land: mountains, hills and above all the sea, with its incredible colors, its crystal-clear water and the beauty of its seabeds, in no way inferior to those of other seas.
Here, the Mediterranean Sea, with its many little islands scattered around the coasts of Sicily - The Aeolians, Egadi and Pelagie Islands, Pantelleria and Ustica - offers unique and the intense sceneries, scents and flavors of uncontaminated nature.
Last but not least, its great volcanoes are symbols of the irresistible beauty and vitality of this incredibly charming region.
Fascination for this region grows with treasured archaeological sites that tell the story of the ancient origins of Trinacria (ancient name for Sicily).
The provinces of the region are: Palermo (regional capital), Agrigento, Catania, Caltanissetta, Enna, Messina, Ragusa, Siracusa and Trapani.
Mondello is a beautiful tourist destination located only a few kilometres from the city. Until the end of the 19th Century it was a noxious and foul-smelling swamp, however, in 1898 the area was reclaimed by Prince Francesco Lanza di Scalea and subsequently leased by the municipality to an Italian-Belgian company which commenced development of the area by creating a lido, a hotel and 300 villas.
During this period the Art Deco villas of the Belle Epoque were constructed, some by noted architects such as the Sicilian architect Ernesto Basile. The small fishing village was thus transformed into a rich and elegant resort and its development continued until the end of the 1990's. Today Mondello's rich heritage of historic villas remains intact; some of the villas have been completely restored over the years while others are left semi-abandoned. The lido was completely renovated several years ago and now houses a prestigious sailing club and the Charleston restaurant. For a number of years the beach has been covered in the summer with wooden beach huts which are rented to families and used for various purposes.
From 2008, the company which operates the beach is slowly eliminating the unsightly beach huts and transforming the beach by creating small areas with bars, deck chairs and umbrellas which undoubtedly helps to create a more pleasant and livable environment. Mondello is a place which retains an extraordinary fascination, above all out of season when its white beach is infrequently used and the splendid Caribbean colours of the sea can be seen in their full glory. In the village of Mondello, still partially used by the local fishermen, there are numerous restaurants where you can eat excellent fish and seafood, either standing or sitting down.
Beyond the town lies the Capo Gallo Nature Reserve which was created in 2001. Upon payment of a small entry fee, you can enter the reserve and swim in one of its small, sandy coves or from the rocks. The reserve is also an ideal place for hiking. You can walk to a fascinating, abandoned lighthouse along the unmade coastal path which runs through the reserve. Sailing regattas are regularly organised at Mondello by the local sailing clubs. In Mondello you can rent rib's and boats, pleasure craft and windsurfers and take classes in scuba diving and surf kiting. All essential services are available in the village: bus, pharmacy, supermarkets, restaurants, self-service cafes, pizzerias, sandwich bars, mini-golf course and tennis courts.
