Sicily

Today we include a new and great destination in our app: Sicily. Sicily is the largest of the Italian islands and one of the pearls of Southern Italy. Nature seems to have endowed all its wonders to this land: mountains, hills and above all the sea, with its incredible colors, its crystal-clear water and the beauty of its seabeds. Riserva dello Zingaro is a pristine stretch of mountainous coastline. Monte San Calogero offers breathtaking views from the summit. Mount Etna towers to incredible heights and is visible from much of Sicily. Here, the Mediterranean Sea, with its many little islands scattered around the coasts of Sicily – The Aeolians, Egadi and Pelagie Islands, Pantelleria and Ustica – offers unique sceneries.  These little islands are a real paradise.

 

The island’s capital city, Palermo, is renowned for its fascinating blend of Arabic, Norman and Baroque architecture. Sicily hosts also beautiful and charming towns such as the hilltop town of Erice, the medieval town of Cefalù, or the pretty town of Taormina. The lovely seafront city of Syracruse has many attractions and also does Catania. Fascination for this region grows with treasured archaeological sites that tell the story of the ancient origins of Sicily. Highlights include the ancient port of Selinunte, the ruined Roman villa at Piazza Armerina, the Greek temple complex at Agrigento, or the atmospheric archaeological site of Morgantina.
