Sicily, an island kissed by the sun
Sicily is the vastest among the islands of the Mediterranean Sea, a melting-pot for different cultures, customs, traditions and tastes. Beautiful untouched landscapes stretch across the region which is surrounded by a crystal clear blue sea. This lush, friendly, cozy and passionate land will easily find way into your heart thanks to its beautiful ancient squares, its many artistically remarkable churches and its rich and genuine culinary traditions.
To fully enjoy this region just indulge in the unique flavours of the Sicilian cuisine with its varied tasty dishes and wines.
From Mount Etna to Marsala you’ll find a wide range of proposals allowing you to discover the history, the archeological sites, the beautiful nature and all the traditions of this wonderful region: you can choose among an excursion on the slopes of a volcano, a visit to the romantic salt mines and salt works, a stroll in the orderly vineyards or along the jagged coastline.
This will be an unforgettable experience!
While driving along the wine routes you’ll also find a lot of useful information and precious suggestions about wine and food itineraries as well as wine tastings in tourist-welcoming wine cellars.
Just take it easy, enjoy your trip and take delight in savouring the well-known tasty Sicilian street food: during your holiday you will have the chance to try many typical products such as the famous Arancini di riso (stuffed rice balls coated with breadcrumbs and fried), the typical Scacce (focaccia bread), the local Pane con la milza (bread with veal spleen fried in lard) and croquettes made from French fries.
And if you like intense experiences don’t miss the fish market in Catania or the famous markets Capo Vecchio, Ballarò and Vucciria located in Palermo, which look very similar to Middle East markets.
