Sicily & Aeolian Islands

Sicily is the biggest island in Italy and in the Mediterranean Sea, an amazing land rich in history and traditions, where art and culture intertwine with wonderful natural beauties.

From the sea to the mountains and countryside, from the volcanos to the fishing villages, there are really many reasons why to visit Sicily. As Frederick II, King of Sicily, once said: “I don't envy God's paradise, because I'm well satisfied to live in Sicily”.

In the list of the Unesco's World Heritage sites there are seven Sicilian places: in addition to the Baroque cities Noto, Modica and Ragusa, the Aeolian Islands, the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and Syracuse with the rock-cut Necropolis of Pantalica, this prestigious award was obtained also by mount Etna – being one of the most symbolic and active volcanos in the world -, the Villa Romana del Casale, in Piazza Armerina, e il Arab-Norman Palermo and the Cathedral churches of Cefalù and Monreale, an itinerary through the Norman-Arab history of great artistic value.

The Archipelago of the Aeolian Islands consist of seven exquisite islands off the coast of Sicily - Lipari, Panarea, Vulcano, Stromboli, Salina, Alicudi and Filicudi - in addition to smaller islets and giant boulders. They all emerge from an uncontaminated sea, created by still-active volcanoes (Stromboli and Vulcano), and blessed by a savage beauty.
