Sicily Area Guide
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and one of Italy’s five Autonomous Regions. It is separated from the Italian boot by the narrow Strait of Messina, and is surrounded by the Ionian, the Tyrrhenian and the Mediterranean Seas. Its most prominent physical landmark is Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe, and one of the most active in the world, currently 3,329 m (10,922 ft) high. Nature has been hard at work here, with rugged mountains, gentle hills, sweeping plains and above all the sea, with its incredible colours, crystal-clear water and white beaches.
There are many islands off Sicily’s coast, including the Aeolian Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the best known of which are Lipari, Vulcano and Stromboli. Another world treasure certified by UNESCO is the archaeological area of Agrigento, one of the most important towns of Magna Graecia, with its famous Valley of the Temples, surrounded by green olive groves, almond trees, citrus orchards and vineyards. Palermo and Catania are just two of the island’s many vibrant and colourful cities. Whether you’re seeking sea, mountains, food, wine, history or archaeology, Sicily has it all, soaked in southern Mediterranean sun.
