All about Sicily

Luxury Retreats: an Expert in Sicilian Vacations

Sitting right at the southern tip of Italy, the beautiful but rugged island of Sicily is separated from the mainland by the two-mile-wide Straits of Messina. Although it is probably most famous as the home of Mount Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe, Sicily has so much more to offer visitors – think fantastic food and wine, ancient temples, beautiful beaches and a bustling capital city.

Sicily’s Mediterranean climate means hot summers and mild winters, so plan your vacation here for either late spring or early autumn to make the most of the warm, sunny days. The easiest way to reach Sicily is to fly into one of the island’s main airports, in either Palermo, Catania or Trapani. However, if you’re coming from the Italian mainland you can also take either a train or a ferry.

Explore Palermo

The fascinating city of Palermo brings together Byzantine, Arabesque and, of course, Italian influences, which is a testament to its 2,700 years of history. In many ways, however, Palermo is a thoroughly modern city: its contemporary art scene is thriving, pioneering new restaurants open up regularly and some of the more run-down neighborhoods are becoming fashionable hang-outs. A perfect day in Palermo might start at the Mercato del Capo, a souk-like market where throngs of locals barter with vendors over fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and a variety of household goods. From there head to the dazzling Cappella Palatina, a gilded chapel that boasts incredibly intricate Byzantine mosaics. For a further culture fix, the Museum of Contemporary Sicilian Art at the Palazzo Riso and the Galleria d’Arte Moderna, which is housed inside a 15th century-Franciscan monastery, are both well worth a visit.

Try some local delicacies

As a country, Italy is famous for its cuisine – and rightfully so – but the island of Sicily has its own specialties which are well worth a try. Many Sicilian foods fall into the street food category – they can be picked up at the market or a hole-in-the-wall café and eaten on the go. They also tend to err on the side of unhealthy – but don’t worry about that on vacation! The first must-try is arancini: these fried rice balls can be stuffed with ragú, mozzarella, and peas, and are usually served in bite-size pieces, although at Palermo’s Antico Caffè Spinnato you’ll get one, delicious, softball-sized arancino. Other savory specialties include fritti misti (mixed fried seafood), stigghiola (barbecued intestines) and panelle (chickpea fritters). For dessert, a refreshing granita might be all you have room for, but be sure to try some of Sicily’s famous pastries, which include cannoli and cassata, a sponge cake made with ricotta and candied fruits.

Travel to the top of Mount Etna

Discover the Valley of Temples

You can find remains of Ancient Greek civilization in Sicily all across the island, but the stunning Valle dei Templi is well worth a visit for anyone interested in history or archaeology. The site encompasses the ruined city of Akragas, which is now the modern-day city of Agrigento on Sicily’s southwest coast. The ‘valley’, which is, in fact, a ridge on the outskirts of town includes seven temples, the most remarkable of which is the Temple of Concordia. Constructed in 430 BC, the temple has remained almost intact for over 2,000 years and is one of the most notable examples of ancient Greek architecture in existence today.
