The Sicily region

The Greek cities of Sicily as Selinunte, Segesta, Syracuse, were among the most beautiful of the Hellenic world. Visit the magnificent Greek Theatre of TAORMINA, the archaeological Roman city of Tindari, the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento or watch a show in summer grand Greek Theatre of Syracuse is an authentic diving in the distant past Hellenic. And the same happens in Sicily, with many other epochs and civilizations, from Spanish to French. Sicily is a book of history and art history, and cultures of the greatest civilizations of all time. An island with an exuberant nature, spine-tingling views and a delicious and varied cuisine of Mediterranean flavors and aromas unforgettable. Sicilian towns are Messina, TAORMINA, Catania, Siracusa, Caltanissetta, Enna, Ragusa, Trapani, Palermo, Agrigento and Noto.

Sicily guard treasures of Magna Graecia, so close to Africa, the Iberian Peninsula and East and occupies a strategic position in terms of military and commercial. Pioneered by Phoenicians, by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, built by the Byzantines ... So much mixture, what culture, what beauty!

Flavors that run the world and perfume tables? Spectacular views, beautiful beaches, scenery, ruins, alleys, stairwells, cliffs, and the highest active volcano in Europe, Mount Etna! Sicily is a spectacle!

It is no coincidence, is the desired goal by tourists from all over the world!

If you want to make the most of it in this region, we strongly recommend that you rent a car in Sicily. Taxi Services are very expensive although where usage is necessary or convenient to you; please ensure that you get an idea of the cost of the journey before you travel.

Here you will find local bus services and you must purchase a fare ticket, which are sold at Newsagents, tobacco vendors and even some bars. A ticket will cost approximately one euro each and they are valid for 60-90 minutes from the time they are stamped. When you board the bus you must ensure to stamp your ticket in the machine provided.

Also Eating out in Sicily is relatively cheap when compared to other regions of Italy. Prices and portions will vary according to the location, size and type of establishment, though portions are usually large and the service is friendly and helpful.

Please be aware that it is often difficult to find someone who speaks English and often the menu is difficult to translate as it refers to local foods and dishes. So remember to take your dictionary with you to assist with ordering and understanding the menu.

Most Restaurants will not include service in their bill and therefore it is usual to leave a tip. Exact opening hours vary greatly from place to place. Generally in Sicily you will find that almost everything closes between 1pm and 4pm apart from a few restaurants and shops. Supermarkets close at 8pm and most pharmacies are closed at night except for the night-service pharmacies, which accommodate emergencies.

In general principle archeological sites are open from 9-12am and 4-7pm Monday - Friday and 9am - 12am Saturday (Summer hours may be longer). Museums are open from 9-1 Tuesday - Saturday and some weekday afternoons. Most shops close on a Monday morning and all day on Sunday but open 9am-1pm and 4pm-7.30 pm on other days including Saturdays. Banks are usually open Monday to Friday 08.30 - 13.20 14.45 - 15.45 and are closed Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.

Restaurants such as pizzerias open evenings from around 8pm Tuesday through Saturday and some are closed Sundays and Mondays. Some restaurants open for lunch from around 12.30 or 1pm but don’t expect to find pizza served at lunchtime as many restaurants only serve pizza in the evening.

Savoca

The Taormina area also includes the beautiful and historic Valle d'Agro where all close there are the sea villages of S.Teresa di Riva, S. Alessio Siculo, Furci Siculo, Roccalumera and the hilltop villages of Savoca, Forza D'Agro, Casalvecchio and other small ancient medieval villages,

Savoca village was chosen to stand in for the less-photogenic Corleone: also off-limits because the real Mafia were none to keen on Coppola's project. When Michael and his two companions are walking in the hills, they see this picturesque village in the distance - which I think is actually nearby Forza d' Agrò - and one them remarks "Corleone".

But later, after Michael's wedding, they do walk down from the church in Savoca to Vitelli's Bar on the piazza for the reception. The table where he sat earlier to ask the padrone for the hand of his delightful daughter Apollonia is still there, and you can sit at it to sample the famous granita di limone (which is the second reason for making the journey to Savoca).

The third reason for a visit is the Convent of the Frati Minori Cappuccini, which you will have passed on the road up to the town - or more precisely, the Catacomb which lies beneath. You pay a small sum to the custodian, and then pass through a trapdoor, down a rickety wooden ladder into the crypt. Unless you've seen the similar sight at the Cappuccini in Palermo, nothing can prepare you for what you are about to see. Around the wall in glass cases or coffins are the corpses of Savoca's worthies, dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. Most are in a standing posture, and still wearing the appropriate dress for their professions in life.

Few horror films could compare with the grisly reality of sharing a crypt with 35 or so decayed corpses, some 300 years old. The fact that some have been daubed with green paint by vandals only adds to the effect. Having an ancestor here is a source of great local pride.

"Perfect Sicilian experience in a beautiful villa"

My husband and I booked Villa Siciliana for our honeymoon and it turned out to be the perfect place for it. The villa is beautifully decorated in a very traditional Sicilian style, while still retaining all the comfort of modern amenities.

It couldn't have been easier to find the villa as we were met promptly by Gianfranco at an appointed time & place and he brought us straight to the villa. We were immediately struck with how beautiful the villa & it's surroundings are. It's a very private location, there are no overlooking properties so it feels wonderfully secluded. The pool is a great size, there are outdoor shower/toilet facilities & loads of sun loungers, chairs etc. In fact if you get the weather, which you probably will, it being Sicily, you could spend nearly all your time outdoors here as there is a couple of great seating areas, a huge barbecue (which was set up and ready for us to use straight away when we arrived), an outdoor food prep are & a pizza oven! Also a great lighting system, which really showed off the pool and terrace to advantage when we were sipping wine as the sun went down. However if there is a rare bout of bad weather the interior of the villa has everything you could possibly need for a cosy time indoors, including tv, wifi, hifi and fully stocked kitchen if you feel like cooking.

Gianfranco and Christian were so friendly and helpful as well. They had a very welcome platter of meats, cheeses, olives, bread & fruit waiting for us when we arrived along with two bottles of locally produced wine. This was free of charge and really thoughtful of them to provide after our long journey. They even had traditional Sicilian music playing which really helped set the atmosphere! In fact Gianfranco dropped in a couple of times over the week with some local delicacies for us to try, which was so nice of him.

The surrounding area is lovely too, with some lovely restaurants in nearby St Teresa di Riva, which Gianfranco will tell you all about, and of course Savoca, of The Godfather fame, which seems pretty much unchanged since Coppola filmed there and is a really charming village to stroll around, with some great restaurants (including the famous Bar Vitelli), beautiful churches and spectacular views down to the sea. Taormina, with all its sights & beautiful beaches, is also pretty accessible from the villa.

The only possible drawback (although it wasn't for us), is that a car is necessary for a stay in this villa, as there is very little within walking distance. Although everything you could need is only a very short drive away, everything requires a car to get to. This actually worked really well for us as we used the car to explore the surrounding areas during the day, including Taormina, Etna & Syracuse and spent perfect evenings at the villa swimming, barbecuing and drinking wine on the terrace. One other possible drawback is the mosquitoes, which were pretty voracious when we were there. The owners helpfully provided insect repellent when we arrived, which was great, as I'd neglected to bring any. After we slathered ourselves in that they left us alone, for the most part.

In all, I couldn't recommend Villa Siciliana highly enough, for a relaxing, secluded holiday. The owners went above & beyond at all times to ensure we had a great experience. It was great for the two of us but we also plan to go back with our families & friends in the future. i just hope I haven't given it such a good review that it's booked out when we want it!
