Journey to a place where history and modernity merge, where the sun plays with all its colours on the turquoise sea and the scent of citrus and wine permeates the air. Welcome to Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, which will enchant you with its diversity, beauty and unique atmosphere.

Sicily is the island of a thousand faces. Here you will find bustling historic towns and picturesque mountain villages where time has stood still. The metropolis of Palermo will absorb you with its chaotic rhythm, the Ballaró market with its mountains of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and monumental sights like the Norman palace and the cathedral. Catania, at the foot of Mount Etna, will delight you with its elegant Baroque palaces, lively squares and renowned cuisine. And Syracuse, the birthplace of Archimedes, will transport you back to ancient times among the Greek temples and Roman amphitheatres.

History will breathe on you at every step. Phoenician towns, Greek temples, Roman villas, Byzantine mosaics, Arab fortresses, Norman cathedrals, Aragonese castles and Baroque palaces tell the story of an island fought over by Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spaniards and Bourbons. Their legacy is reflected in the island’s architecture, art, language and cuisine to this day.

Sicily’s nature is as varied as its history. The bright blue sea bathes both sandy beaches and wild rocky cliffs. Inland, the colours of citrus groves, vineyards, olive and almond orchards abound. Above it all towers majestic Mount Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano, its slopes dotted with lava fields and lush vegetation. Nebrodi and Madonie National Parks attract unspoilt nature with deep forests, waterfalls and endemic species of flora and fauna.

Sicilian cuisine is the pride of the island. Fresh fish, seafood, juicy tomatoes, fragrant herbs, delicious cheeses and excellent wines all come together in traditional recipes you’ll love. Try the famous pasticciata, risotto po sicchio, fried arancini, sweet cannoli or granita, and wash it down with a glass of Nero d’Avola or Marsala. A gourmet experience is guaranteed!

Whatever time of year you head to Sicily, you’re in for an unforgettable holiday under the azure skies and warm sunshine. Explore vibrant cities and sleepy villages, ancient monuments and unspoilt nature, stunning beaches and majestic mountains, delicious cuisine and warm-hearted people. Let yourself be swept away by the rhythm of island life, where time has no c and where every day feels like paradise. Benvenuti in Sicilia, on an island where dreams come true!

And now a few words about the weather – Sicily boasts one of the most pleasant climates in Europe. In summer, temperatures soar to a tropical 30°C, the sun bathes the beaches and ancient temples, and the sea beckons for a refreshing swim. Late spring and early autumn are ideal for sightseeing and exploring the countryside, with temperatures around 20°C and minimal rainfall. And although the thermometer’s mercury dips towards 10°C in winter, the sun still shines more often over Sicily than elsewhere in Europe. Whenever you visit, the weather is sure to favour your plans and adventures. Sicily bedda, beautiful Sicily, is waiting for you!
