To have seen Italy without seeing Sicily is not having seen Italy at all - for Sicily is the key to everything -Goethe
Sicily, queen of the mediterranean is an island rich in history and myth. It offers an intense fusion of colours, tastes and emotions which blend together forming an unforgettable experience for all who experience it.
Strategically positioned in the mediterranean it has always been a land of conquest and civil upheaval. A place of both multi-cultural union and collision and where prevailing traces of these identities have been left during the course of the centuries. With the rotation of domination each population, unique culturally with their own artistic and architectural expressions have given the land an outstanding richness that we can still admire today.
Over the centuries these populations have engraved something of their identity on the spirit and character of the Sicilians. One can witness the unchanging customs and the traditions of these cultures which are portrayed and revived daily in the gestures and expression of the people. The religious manifestations contribute towards the creation of an almost unique folklore which when presented is so full of colour and joy of life one can not help but be breath-taken.
Above all Sicily is a land of natural beauty where the crystal sea waters ,perfect beaches and flourishing countryside unite together providing a perfect base to any holiday. One can spend a day on the beautiful sandy coast leading to the peak of Mount Etna, the highest volcano in Europe. Otherwise other neighbouring attractions include woodlands, parks, nature reserves, sanctuaries, churches, mediaeval castles farms and old settlings.
The natural beauty of our island and its relaxed pace of life provide a perfect opportunity for any tourist to indulge. For whoever wishes to learn about our splendid variety of specialist products of both land and sea there is much to be discovered. We also boast of our gushing wine culture, often lavish but always genuine and varied with a thousand different colours and flavours.
This sunshine island is also an island rich in 3,000 years of history and art and of stories and myths. It is an island where the warmth of man is made a point of appreciation and where colours of nature contrast and fuse. A place where one can combine a holiday between history, sea-side relax, culture, enjoyment, performances and excellent cuisine. Where one can visit the breathtaking Roman and Greek remains at Taormina and Agrigento, or simply enjoy the magic atmosphere of Acitrezza, Erice or Selinunte. There is also the beautiful Siracusa to discover or ‘Palazzo Reale’ which is of Norman sovereignty and is found in the city of Palermo. Another interesting experience may be to take a look at our oenology and gastronomic cuisine- sample some of the full flavoured tastes of our land how-ever indulgent.
