The Mediterranean island of Sicily boasts ancient history, famous food and a distinctive volcanic landscape, as well as sun-kissed medieval villages balanced on cliffsides near the sea. Don't miss a visit to this iconic region of Italy
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean, seated right at the tip of Italy's boot and famous worldwide for its beauty. Postcard-perfect villages perch on steep hills surrounded by citrus and olive trees, and sun-kissed stone pathways wind down to crystal blue coves with warm white sand, making this one of the loveliest spots in Italy.
The ancients must have been charmed as well, since they fought over the island for centuries. This tumultuous past has left a diverse cultural legacy including 5 UNESCO World Heritage sites and an impressive collection of ancient monuments. Some of the best Greek and Roman ruins in the world are mixed in with Baroque palaces, Norman churches and remnants from many other eras.
Visitors to Sicily can't miss the other part of the area's tumultuous past – the active volcano Mount Etna makes an incredible backdrop to the region's plunging red cliffs and lush green landscape. All of this, of course, is surrounded by the sparkling Mediterranean Sea. Take in the romance, the dramatic views and the rich mix of cultures unique to this region of Italy with cheap holiday deals to Sicily.
