Sicilia

Sicilia

Italy’s most recognizable island and home to a distinct and unique cultural vibe that seems to be completely separate from the mainland. The land is dotted with ruins that drop hints to its vibrant past while everything from the local food to the dialect seems to have an underlying  kick of spice and zest to it. History and art take their inspirations from the seas that surround the island and if you are going to try seafood for the first time here it better be in Sicily.

Stay in Sicilia

One Day

Take time to enjoy Palermo, the island’s capital. Here you can feast on Cannoli, enjoy UNESCO world heritage sites like the Palermo Cathedral and Palazzo dei Normanni, or see a show at Teatro Massimo.

Three Days

Start at Mount Etna, the active and impressive volcano, and make your way to the Pelagie Islands. Here you can explore the beauty of Lampedusa, Linosa, and Lampione. All three have Carthaginian influences and are a part of a large nature reserve, which protects the unique aquatic life found there.

One Week

Go on a film tour. Sicilian landscapes are prolific among the film industry both in and out of Italy. Go to Forza D’Agro to relive many scenes found in the Godfather Pt 2 and 3. For a more native escape, lose yourself in a Roberto Benigni classic within the walls of Letojanni and Palermo.
