Villas in Sicily

DISCOVER SICILY

1. The island: Sicily is the largest Mediterranean island and is surrounded by no less than three different seas, the Mediterranean, the Ionian and the Tyrrhenian. Blessed with the most stunning sand beaches and close to a thousand kilometres of coastline, Sicily also offers a rocky landscape with Mount Etna or the Stromboli dramatically adding to the scenery.

2. The heritage: its strategic position accounts for the fact that Sicily has seen many civilizations claiming its territory. The Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantine Empire, to name but a few, have all left their mark and the island is scattered with amazing archaeological sites. The Valle dei Templi in Agrigento is a prime example. Sicily is also the birthplace of famous mathematician Archimedes and has ties with mythological stories, like in Aci Trezza, where Ulysses escaped the Cyclops.

3. Water-based activities: snorkelling, catamaran excursions, stand up paddling, wake-boarding,... Everything is on offer. Perhaps you will even be brave enough to give cliff diving a go with the locals?

4. Palermo: of Greek origin, Palermo's meaning is "all port". Home to the Teatro Massimo, the largest opera house in the country, the capital of Sicily is a melting pot where Byzantine details such as mosaics meet with Gothic constructions and Arabian vestiges face baroque churches. An absolutely fascinating place, where something surprising awaits you at ever corner.

5. Taormina: built on the side of a mountain, the town is a popular destination offering amazing views of Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea. It is an interesting combination of modern life with designer shops and busy restaurants mixed with relics of the past, particularly a spectacular ancient amphitheatre and medieval churches.

6. Syracuse: the last stronghold of Greek culture before the Romans took over, Syracuse is divided in five parts called Akradina, Tike, Epipolis, Neapolis and Ortigia. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Necropolis of Pantalica, with over 5000 tombs, and the Greek Theatre where Plato performed can be found there.

7. A few more facts: Marsala is famous for its wine. In Trapani, twenty wooden statues are carried around the streets during the Easter procession. Lava was the prime material used to build the baroque town of Catania. Ragusa is the town divided in two by a ravine, over which four bridges have been built. Sciacca is famous for its ceramic art and thermal baths.
