The Sicily region

Nature and history have combined to give Sicily its most striking feature: impressive monuments of the past set against backgrounds of astonishing natural beauty. With its location in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily became a bridge between the civilizations of the East and West. Peoples from the southern Mediterranean, including the Phoenicians, were the earliest settlers.

The powerful city-states of Syracuse, Selinunte and Agrigento competed with each other to construct the most spectacular temples. The Romans arrived in the 2nd century BC, followed by the Arabs, Normans, French, Spanish and finally the Bourbons. It was during the Norman occupation in the 11th and 12th centuries a major artistic influence, leaving behind exquisite churches and palaces of Arab-Byzantine style.

Sicily has a remarkably varied landscape, with a mountainous interior, hills and plateaus, and a wildly beautiful coastline of rocky promontories, sheer cliffs, fine sand beaches, tiny coves and clear waters. Off shore are groups of smaller islands, some of volcanic origin; Stromboli, off the northern coast, has an active volcano. Breathtaking vistas abound: the semi-tropical landscape of lemon groves and pine forests; miles of sparkling sea shore dotted by small fishing villages; and towering mountains framed by a brilliant blue sky. With its mild climate and volcanic enriched soil, Sicily is an important agricultural centre, growing vegetables and citrus fruit, including the famous blood oranges, and producing olive oil and wine.

Luxuriant gardens with exotic plants grace the major cities, including Palermo, the capital. Sicilian cuisine is an adventure in history. Its cooking speaks of its complicated history of invasions and occupations as well as of the fresh flavours of the land and the bounty of the sea. There is cuscus from Trapani, an Arab legacy, served with a fish stew. Pasta con le sarde, with fresh anchovies, is traditional. Bottarga, tuna roe that has been salted and pressed.Sfinciuni, a stuffed focaccia, is not to be missed, nor iscaponata, a sensuous dish of eggplant, celery and onions that are fried separately and cooked briefly in a sweet and sour sauce that includes tomatoes, raisins, pine nuts, vinegar, and a pinch of sugar.

Piscispada alla ghiotta, an exuberant swordfish preparation, its most famous fish dish.Cassata, a sponge cake with ricotta, chocolate, candied fruits and pistachios, is the most beloved Sicilian dessert; ricotta-stuffedcannoliare known throughout the world.Cubbaita, a nougat with honey, almonds, and sesame seeds, speaks of Arab influence. Some of Italys best ice cream is made in Sicily, and little can rival the sweetness of its fruit. Sicily produces a number of great wines, most of them sweet: Marsala, Malvasia delle Lipari, and Moscato.

Erice

The western tip of Sicily includes the part of the island that falls west of a line drawn between Palermo and Agrigento (on the north and south coasts receptively). Less visited than some parts of Sicily, in part due to its remoteness (although there is now motorways which run to both the north and south of the region), the western part of Sicily has several important highlights and places to visit: there are a couple of very important temple sites to discover, each of which has great appeal and should feature as part of your visit. These include the group of Ancient Greek temples at Selinunte and the lovely setting for the Elymian temple at Segesta.

Along the coast of western Sicily there is often an almost Arab-African feel to the towns and villages - this is due to the proximity to Tunisia, just a short journey across the Mediterranean and closer than much of mainland Italy (see Mozia, Marsala and Mazara del Vallo along the southern coast for examples). The highlights along the coast here include: the interesting town of Trapani has several architectural highlights, the Natural reserve at Paceco; the striking medieval town of Erice, and also the castles to be seen at the town; Marsala, producer of white wine and home to a museum featuring a rare Punic warship; Mozia, the punic island-city in the middle of the Natural reserve of the Stagnone Lagoon; the fishing town of Mazara del Vallo. There are also some very good beaches along this section of the coast - one of the best is at San Vito lo Capo towards the north. (Less tempting to sun-worshippers - there are extensive salt flats between Trapani and Marsala.

Other places to visit in western Sicily are the very beautiful Natural Reserve dello Zingaro just north of Scopello (and south of the popular beach at San Vito lo Capo), where there are various attractive beaches and walks through the protected landscape; the Aegadian Islands (including Favignana and Levanzo) and Pantelleria Island off the western tip of Sicily.
