The Sicily region

Situated in the western part of the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily is the largest of the Italian Islands. The island is loved for its mild climate, unspoilt beaches, bustling towns and breath taking scenery, making it an ideal holiday destination for families and experienced travellers alike.

Theatre of lights and winds, of epic battles and sublime architecture; the southernmost bridge to Africa; indulgent cradle for different civilizations, the island lies down the middle of the Mediterranean Sea like a matron waiting for guests coming from far-off countries.

The sun kisses the blazing sands and the low cliffs; the sky is tinged with strong colours, especially at sunset; the wind brings odours and sands from Africa.

The sandy, golden beaches dance with the bright, blue sea; silver olive trees mix togheter with palms and euphorbies; everything invites you to enjoy life and to get the most of nature.”

But that's not all!

Sicily is an amazing mixture of nature and history: breathtaking panoramas and natural beauties are perfectly combined with impressive monuments from the past.

From the ancient Greek temples of Agrigento, Selinunte and Segesta, to churches, gardens, palaces and theaters built by several civilizations (Romans arrived in the 2nd century BC, followed by the Arabs, Normans, French, Spanish and finally the Bourbons).

Sicilian cuisine is an adventure in history. Its cooking speaks of its complicated history of invasions and occupations as well as of the fresh flavors of the land and the bounty of the sea. It blends extravagant Arab and northern techniques with simple peasant ingredients, mainly the catch of the sea and the pick of the garden.”Pasta con le sarde” is the perfect example: featuring a sauce made with sardines, raisins, pine nuts, fennel, saffron, parsley and capers, its origins go all the way back to the Phoenicians.”Pasta alla Norma” combines tomato, eggplant and tasty “ricotta salata”. Swordfish and tuna dishes abound, especially in May and June.

Sicilian street food is something unforgettable: “Arancine” are fried rice balls resemble oranges - the Italian word for orange is arancia. They can be stuffed with a variety of mixtures, but a meat sauce, or ragu, is the most traditional. “Panelle” - Sicilian Chickpea Fritters - are made from chick-pea flour that may be of Arab origin. Panelle and Arancine are a favorite snack food to the Sicilians, found in fryshops, on the street by vendors, in the airport or even in some gas stations!

But the Sicilian tooth is most glorious when it's sweet. Sicilians think nothing of having a brioche stuffed with ice cream for breakfast. Try it, if you dare.”Cannoli” and “cassata” we've all tasted, but rarely have we encountered anything as dazzling as “frutta Martorana”, perfectly authentic looking marzipan fruits and vegetables originally made by the nuns of the Martorana convent.

Furthermore Sicily offers a great variety of wines and extra-virgin olive oil.
