The Sicily region
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and it's a popular travel destination with a volcano, beaches, mountains, and centuries of history and tradition.
The island is a year round destination. The long summer season will be ideal for beach lovers while Spring and Autumn season are the perfect time for mountain excursions, walks or cycling trips. Those who love skiing will enjoy from December to February the slopes of Vulcan Etna and Piano Battaglia in the Madonie Park.
Castellammare del Golfo (pop. 15,000) is wonderfully positioned in a bay in the north-west of Sicily, just 15 minutes drive from the Greek temple of Segesta, from the famous Scopello cliffs, and from the specialist marine nature reserve of "Lo Zingaro". Years ago Castellammare del Golfo was an important centre for tuna fishing but today it is known for its spectacular location. The town is perfectly suited for those wanting to stay somewhere with atmosphere close to beaches, like those at Scopello, Lo Zingaro and San Vito Lo Capo. It is also the ideal starting point for several of the most interesting cultural and gastronomic tours through the provinces of Trapani, Palermo and Agrigento in Western Sicily, given the easy access by car and other means of local transport
