Ancient and extraordinary finds appear from its volcanoes’ fumes, among rare flavours and unmistakable sounds. After landing and the dream becomes real, the island turns into a continent, a giant to explore. Its legendary cobalt sea is a gift of the mythical sky. Greek, Roman, Arab, Byzantine, Norman and Baroque architectures remain impressed on memory for their magnificence. The several colours and forms that sprang out from the love and ability of ingenious artists struggling with strength and magnificent nature characterized by astonishing landscapes are formidable. In this enchanting, Sicilian people live and enjoy their unique traditions. Experiencing Sicily is an emotion that contains the relish of freedom and diverse, unlimited perceptions.
The choice between the places to enjoy or not consider is not easy, because all open up treasures. Those who visit the island for the first time when arriving at the east side airports cannot miss Mt. Etna (Unesco Heritage), Taormina, Catania, Syracuse and Val di Noto (the largest Unesco Heritage site in the world). Heading towards the western side, in the heart of the island of Sicily, we can stop at many unique archaeological sites: the Roman Villa in Piazza Armerina (Unesco Heritage) and Morgantina. To the south, the most famous is the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento (Unesco Heritage), but there is much more to discover. The Western side leads to other unmissable emotions. Cefalù, the royal city of Palermo (Unesco Heritage) up to Selinunte throughout the Trapani area are enchanting places. The trip is rich in pleasant discoveries of traditions and typical, genuine cuisine, among the cultivation of orchards, vineyards, citrus groves, olive groves and precious ancient Sicilian wheat cultivated in this land. For lovers of the sea and sailing, the Aeolian Islands (the “seven sisters” of the Tyrrhenian Sea – Unesco Heritage) and the Egadi islands, facing the coast of Marsala and Trapani, are gorgeous and all different from one another. Furthermore, the islands of Lampedusa or Pantelleria are perfect for those who want to experience the thrill of being in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, suspended between Europe and Africa.
