Sicily, which in American films represents the homeland of all mafia families, is above all a beautiful Mediterranean island with a rich history and culture. Stunning scenery, perfect weather and excellent food are other great reasons why you should not exclude Sicily from your visit list. You can enjoy the amazing architecture of Sicily in all the capitals of the island. However, fans of architecture most often visit the Val di Noto region, a place with incredible Baroque architecture, which has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Particularly attractive are the cities such as Modica, Noto and Ragusa.
Up to 280 stunning beaches of all kinds, from city beaches, small coves to beaches in national parks. Azure water, clear sand and rugged coastline create the perfect contrast. Whether you decide to spend time anywhere in Sicily, expect to always find a beach that suits you.
The novelty that the Italian government has decided to abolish the quarantine for incoming passengers and also to alleviate the lockdown from 15 May will certainly contribute to the visit to Italy. From now on, you can get to Italy if you have a negative test, immunity to COVID-19 or have completed a complete vaccination.
Where to look
Palermo, the capital of Sicily, is said to be the place where the legendary mafia began its sad days. You will find an incredible number of monuments and attractions in the form of churches, museums, theaters and palaces, but above all you will still be breathed by the mafia mood. As you walk through the city, you will see photos pinned to the trees with a flower, mostly modern mafia bosses. Unwritten mafia rules for life there still apply in the city.
Etna is the largest active volcano in all of Europe. Very often it explodes and sends to the cloud an extreme amount of ash and fluffy clouds that float over the whole island. To get to the top, you have to walk 3323 meters. If you can do it, expect an experience you will never forget.
Sights and food in Sicily
If you indulge in the legends of the ancient Mediterranean, you will be absolutely enchanted by a visit to Sicily. For example, you can visit Syracuse, a perfectly preserved ancient city that has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List, or hundreds of other monuments that are an imaginary mirror of history. A list of all the beautiful monuments would be published in a separate article, but if you do not go for history and monuments, try to visit and see at least the Temple of Cefalù or the Cathedral of Mondreale, which boasts the largest collection of Christian mosaics.
Every holiday clearly includes tasting local cuisine. In Sicily, be sure to try the delicious street snacks and original Sicilian desserts. Don’t miss the arancini tasting, which is deep-roasted balls stuffed with delicious rice and meat filling or delicious cannoli, crispy pastry stuffed with creamy ricotta and various other ingredients such as chocolate and pistachios.
