Sicily Destination Guide - Land Of Sun And Fire

Sicily is Italy's largest and most densely populated island, located in the Mediterranean Sea just 160 km northeast of Tunisia. The island sits just west of the Apennine Peninsula's southern tip, separated from the mainland by the Strait of Messina. The regional capital is the city of Palermo, situated on the northern coast of the island. Sicily is a stunning place of immense history and rich culture, where people have met and prospered for millennia, existing in the shadow of Europe's largest and most active volcano - Etna.

The town overlooks the valley north towards the Tyrrhenian Sea and offers stunning views of the mountains to the south. Here you will be absorbed by the slow pace of everyday life and relaxed atmosphere, typical of the small Sicilian village.
