What we love about Sicily:

  • Mt. Etna:  From the first moment, Mt. Etna stands as a majestic, natural beauty against the clear blue Sicilian sky.   Hardly able to remember the destructive power of this creation of Mother Nature due to the mixture of grandeur and historical significance, it brings quiet speculation of the region into full focus.
  • Tour of Castles:  Almost every province has a castle connected in various states of repair. From the regal, although in disrepair, Mussomeli Castle presenting a vivid understanding of a medieval architecture to the well preserved Pepoli Castle in Erice, a tour of castles throughout the region could easily become an obsession as well as a step back in history and occupation.
  • Temples and Churches:  After understanding the history of warfare and occupation of Sicily, an important sideline note for those interested are the plethora of ancient temples, like the Temple of Diana with an incredible view of the town, and the many medieval churches.  Almost dizzying from the mixture of ancient pagan practices and the medieval celebration of Christianity, the overall timeline of history completes the experience of Sicily.
  • Food!:  Without a doubt, to miss the delights of the foods and wines of Sicily is to miss Sicily!  As a culture steeped in the decadence of excellent food paired with fabulous wines, you wont want to miss a meal.
