What’s sicily like for a holiday

First, let’s find out some the most attractive tourist destinations in Sicily.

Mount Etna

Mount Etna is a huge part of ancient mythology and the largest active volcano in Europe. During the ancient times, the Greeks used to believe that it is the home to Cyclops – the giant, one-eyed monsters. Today, it is a massive tourist attraction, with modern bus and train services connecting it from Catania and Riposte. You can either hike up the woods during summer, ski down the peaks in winter, or ride up a cable car to witness the magical view from 3000m.

Catania Province

Located on the east coast of Sicily, the province of Catania is the second largest city in the island. The home to the Mount Etna, it also has a buzzing metropolis with vibrant fish markets and seafood restaurants. Among the archaeological sites, the must-see destinations include the Castello Ursino, the Cathedral of Saint Agatha, the Piazza del Duomo, the Amphitheatre of Catania, etc. You can also catch a glimpse of the famed Cyclopean Isles formed from the volcanic eruptions some 500,000 years ago.

Valley of the Temples

For the lovers of historical ruins, the Valley of the Temples is like a heaven. With a perimeter of 1,300 hectares, it is the largest archaeological park in the world, consisting of eight different temples built between the 5 and 6 century BC. To emphasize its importance, it is the six column design of one of its greatly preserved Greek ruins – the Temple of Concordia that inspired the design of the UNESCO symbol.

Palermo City

Palermo is a vibrant metropolis, and the capital of Sicily. Known for its glorious history, art, culture, music, and cuisine; the city is the home to a 9th -century palace – the Palazzo dei Normanni, the Teatro Massimo – famous for opera performances, the Cappella Palatina – adorned with Byzantine mosaics, etc. The Quattro Canti is the traditional centre of Palermo with a symmetrical sky view.
