As German writer, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe so aptly put it: "To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything".

Although part of Italy, Sicily the largest of the Mediterranean islands, has its own unique and fascinating culture and charm.
