This beautiful island is perfectly placed at the heart of the Mediterranean and attracted a succession of colonisers from the Greeks, Romans and Carthaginians through to the Arabs and Normans. The island's checquered past can be seen everywhere.

An Island with Amazing Variety

There's a range of fabulous architecture from different centuries and culinary influences that make Sicilian cuisine unique and delicious. Sicily's varied landscape makes a dramatic first impression whether you're on the coast or in the mountainous interior.

Hilltop Villages

I’d wholeheartedly recommend spending some time in one of the amazing hilltop villages in the island’s South East such as Ragusa, Noto and Modica. There’s the most fabulous Baroque architecture and you’re completely surrounded by history. It’s like walking around a film set. Fans of the TV programme Inspector Montalbano will recognize many of the places that feature in the series.

Scenic Coast

Sicily’s coastal scenery is spectacular – whether you head for the picturesque and lively town of Taormina with its views of Mount Etna, the Zingaro Nature Reserve near Trapani in the North West or visit the beaches near Ragusa in the South – the views are picture-perfect.

Two Main Airports

Fly into Catania and the smoking hulk of Etna greets you; arrive in Palermo and it's the sparkling Golfo di Castellammare. This juxtaposition of sea, volcano and mountain scenery makes a stunning backdrop wherever you are in the island.



Don’t bite off more than you can chew with Sicily – pick an area of the island and explore at a leisurely pace. And there’s a wide range of accommodation from 5* luxury palaces to more humble 3* pensiones – and wine estates that offer fantastic accommodation in rural surroundings. Sicily is a magical place, and I highly recommend a visit here.


Sicilian food is excellent - with influences from many different cultures. You must try arancini - delicious fried balls of risotto stuffed with a range of fillings.
