The island of Sicily offers a number of wonderful places to visit on day-trips or excursions. In the northern area, you might want to include cities such as Palermo, Monreale, Cefalù, Castelbuono, Erice, Segesta, Marsala, and Trapani to your must-see. The eastern coast of the island is also worth exploring, starting from the famous cities of Taormina, Catania, Syracuse, Noto, and Ragusa and the utterly unforgettable volcanic peak of Mt. Etna. The extraordinary city of Palermo is the capital of Sicily, so beautiful that Maupassant described it as “the most beautiful religious jewelry dreamed by human thought”. Visit the richly decorated churches, the imposing monuments and lose yourself in the little streets of the historical center. Explore the archeological site of Segesta, once one of the most important fortified cities on the north Sicilian basin. Do not pass on Erice, the ancient medieval village rich in history and charm. If you venture up to Marsala, drive along the Salt Route and enjoy the burning sunset reflected on the lagoon of the salt mines. You will never forget it! And take note that Marsala, known as the “city of wine”, has been producing a sweet dessert wine of the same name for more than 200 years. Do not leave the island without at least a bottle of this liquid gold!

The island of Sicily is distinctly different from the rest of Italy as it floats just off the toe of the Italian mainland. The Capital city Palermo is splendid with its chaos and treasures. Be prepared to explore the palaces, castles and churches which are a fusion of Arab, Norman, baroque, and Renaissance gems. Life in Palermo is quite full on. A very warm hearted and noisy affair.

The people of this city love to eat. Whether they are shopping, or on their way home from work, they are always enjoying little hot snacks prepared at street stalls. A famous chickpea fritta, custard filled croissant, potato croquette, or an oily pizza topped with onions and caciocavallo cheese are just a few examples of the delicious food available in the street stands.

Sicily is a part of Italy that starts to take on a flavour of Greece or of north Africa.
