The Sicily region

Just a couple of miles separate Sicily from mainland Italy. But this melting pot of history and heritage might as well be half way around the world. Yes, it’s quintessentially Italian. But over the years the whole island, or parts of it, have been ruled by the Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Goths, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans.

And something of each has rubbed off on the architecture, attitudes and lifestyle of the Sicilians to create a wonderful patchwork of culture and customs. What’s more, these independent minded people continue to borrow the best bits of the world around them, without eroding their own time-honoured traditions. So, you get lively cosmopolitan beach life in the east coast resorts, while just a few miles inland you’re in a timeless rural idyll of orange groves, pine clad mountains, one-horse villages and siestas that seem to last most of the day.

Travel a bit further and you’ll be surprised again, coming across a magnificent Greek temple, an imposing Norman church or a Baroque town with elegant honey-coloured palazzi. To add to the diversity, Sicily also has three clusters of offshore outposts relatively close to its coastline - the Aeolian, Egadi and Pelagie islands, all of which have their own special scenic and cultural claims to fame.

Last but by no means least, there’s the island’s biggest attraction - in more ways than one! Volcanic Mount Etna towers over Catania and Taormina, its caldera gurgling away like a giant saucepan of minestrone. Serene on the outside, bubbling under with life, it’s a potent symbol of the unique Sicilian way of life.

Romans, Greeks, Spanish, Arabs, French - the list of civilisations Sicily has been home to is impressively diverse, and each one has left behind a little of itself. Whether it’s in the amazing architecture, in the distinctive Sicilian dialect or added ingredients to the cuisine, Sicily has absorbed something from all its visitors and created a culture that is proudly different to the rest of Italy.


Syracuse - one among the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean Sea - is situated right on the coast facing the sea. It is rich in history and monuments and expresses the whole range and cultural complexity of Sicily from prehistory up to the present day.

The ancient small town of Greek origin was founded by the Corinthians in 734 B.C. and throughout the centuries has undergone underwent several dominations: Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans… The town was razed to the ground by the tragic earthquake of 1693, soon afterwards was rebuilt in a prevalently baroque style and still nowadays its historical centre is pervaded with a pretty fascinating eighteenth century atmosphere. Numerous are its monuments worth visiting: the Duomo (Cathedral), the Fonte Aretusa (Fount of Aretusa), the Castello Maniace (Castle of the Maniace family), the Teatro Greco (Greek Theatre), the Orecchio di Dioniso (Ear of Dionysus' cave), the Castello Eurialo (Castle of Eurialo).

To those ones who are fond of nature and trekking we recommend, besides the renowned bathing localities, the Riserva Naturale di Cavagrande del Cassibile (Natural Reserve) crossed by a short river which in its course creates some natural small lakes where people can bathe surrounded by an oasis of sheer Mediterranean vegetation.In late evening it is really nice to walk along the sea-front promenade of Ortigia Island where you can try the sesame flavoured "torrone" (kind of nougat) or drink a glass of "Rosso di Pachino" (red wine). Cultural events take place all the year long but the classical plays of the Greek tragedies - staged in the ancient theatre of Syracuse during the months of May and June - have international fame.
