The Sicily region
Wherever you turn you will see evidence of Sicily's 3,000 years of history as the strategic crossroads of Europe. Nowhere else have Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, French, Germans, Spanish, Italians, and even the British, left such an enormous collective legacy.
The island is a vast open-air museum, a testament to nearly every Mediterranean civilisation of the past. There is always something to do, whether it be lounging on golden beaches, hiking in the mountains, visiting ancient archaeological sites, skiing on Mount Etna or shopping in Palermo's fashionable boutiques.
Sicily does not only offer summer, sun and lovely beaches but also many cultural highlights. A compulsory point on each itinerary for a Sicily vacation are the countless testimonies of past times that a spread out across the island.
Some examples include the world famous „Valley of the Temples“ in Agrigent with the structures more than 2,500 years old and are testament of Greek settlement on this island during the ancient times. Besides this also well preserved remains of antique structures can be visited in Syrakus oder Catania which are equally appealing.
Those who need to cool down after these historical adventures will find many places to do so along the more than 1,000 kilometres of coastline. In the north and east you will mainly find steep cliffs and rocks towering above the sea with a number of picturesque bays lying in-between them. The southwestern part is flatter and characterised by beautiful beach strips.
Sicily has though much more to offer than just temples and beaches. Explore some of the interesting smaller and larger towns such as Palermo, Messina, Ragusa, Trapani or Taormina. Alternatively go on a boat tour that will take you to the Aeolian Islands and Aegadian Islands.
TAORMINA.... in the foothills of mount Etna, visible from every angle and snow-tipped for half the year. Whether it's more picturesque looking up from below or being in the old town looking down is not worth deliberating. Both aspects are breathtaking. Especially the view from the Greek theatre. International Film Festival from June to August, with actors, directors and producers coming from far and wide for the event featuring previews, independent features, documentaries and film shorts.
ALCANTARA VALLEY... Walkers and nature lovers will find a spring holiday in Sicily especially satisfying. The Alcantara valley area also offer plenty of scope for watersports fans.
ALCANTARA GORGE.....Walk along the floor of this 223-foot deep lava canyon - a narrow, scenically spectacular gorge carved out of the rock by a fast-flowing stream.
Beautiful SICILY BEACHES can be found at popular east-coast resorts like Giardini Naxos and Letojanni.
Visit the ROMAN VILLA at PIAZZA ARMERIA, with its incredibly well-preserved MOSAICS. Climb and visit also MOUNT ETNA, Europe's most active volcano, to see the craters and lava flows at the summit, an unforgettable experience.
Discover the excellent local Sicilian cuisine in the several restaurants in the surroundings. The enjoyment of eating good food, taken together with equally good wine is something Sicilians take very seriously. Visit the little restaurants called "trattoria" where locals (who always know best) eat every day.Taormina offers great dining as well as excellent shopping. Though there are good restaurants throughout Taormina, we suggest that you try the ones on side streets instead of those near the port which might be described as "tourist restaurants." There are excellent pastry shops and "bars" that serve ice creams, pastries and, during Summer months, granita (flavoured ices).
You'll be rewarded with some of the island's most unspoilt beaches, beautiful coastal scenery, fascinating wildlife and a pace of life that's decidedly tortoise-like.

"Fantastisch compleet vakantiehuis met zwembad. groots uitzicht"
We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in Villa Rosa. de ontvangst door de eigenaren was zeer hartelijk. We konden hen altijd bellen als er iets was. Het huis is groot en van alle gemakken voorzien. Er is een zwembad met mooi terras en uitzicht op de Etna. De tuin en huis zijn goed onderhouden en schoon.
Het ligt net buiten een dorp waar niet veel te beleven valt. Maar met een huurauto kom je overal.
Wij hebben genoten van onze vakantie .
