Sicily: The Island of the thousand faces

Considering the mystical mountain scenery, the fabulous historic sites, roman theatres and temples, stunning beaches and bays, you understand very quickly: La vita รจ bella, life is beautiful.

The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea lies just a few kilometers from the African mainland and is separated by the Strait of Messina from the rest of The Boot. The fertile coastal areas are characterized primarily by vineyards and citrus crops. Hills and mountains dominate the landscape in the north and east. Particularly the eastern side of the island is heavily volcanic. Etna, the emblem of Sicily, is one of the largest and most active volcanoes in Europe.

The ancient greek- roman ruins and theatres tell the history of Sicily, especially in the historic cities of Syracuse and Agrigento. Despite the density of cultural and natural localities, a traditional seaside holiday should not be missed. Beautiful beaches, hidden coves and azure blue sea invite visitors to relax or to discover the fascinating underwater world.

Sicily on a plate: colorful, imaginative and rich, that’s how the Sicilian delicacies are served. An absolute highlight is the pasta, the queen of Italian cuisine. Extremely delicious couscous enriched with seafood, as well as traditional, candied almonds and fruits are highly recommended. Pure Italian way of life, this is Sicily.
