Located at the toe end of Italy’s boot, separated from the mainland by the Strait of Messina lies Sicily. Mountainous, volcanic, temperate, with luscious countryside and stunning beaches in equal measure, Mother Nature was feeling particularly generous when she created Sicily!
Together with its neighbouring islands, Sicily encompasses an autonomous part of Italy. The islands coasts are bordered by the Mediterranean, Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas, adding diversity in climate and culture to the island, depending on which resort you’re in.
A crucible of Mediterranean culture since ancient times, Sicily allures thousands of tourists each year to soak up the sun and the history of the island. An archaeological hub with ruins from ancient Greek and Roman civilisations littering the island’s cities, Sicily is an explorer’s paradise!
But if the Indiana Jones style holiday isn’t for you, resorts across the island cater to families and couples simply looking to relax and enjoy some peace, relaxation and good cooking! Famous as the home of the pizza, Sicily is prized for its culinary delights and excellent wines.
