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."
From the subtle scent of lemon trees that fills the balmy air and the rich history that envelops the island to the sincere warmth of its natives and the distinctly delicious cuisine, for which Sicily is famous, this enchanting island really needs to be seen to be believed. .
Although part of Italy, Sicily the largest of the Mediterranean islands, has its own unique and fascinating culture and charm. Separated from the mainland by the Straits of Messina, 3km away, at one time or another it was ruled by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans and Spanish, all of whom have left their mark on the island with its unique blend of monuments, traditions and warm hospitality.
With Greek, Spanish, French and Arab influences combined with traditional Italian cuisine, Sicilian food is just as fascinatingly diverse as it is mouthwateringly good.
It may be small, but the Mediterranean island packs quite the punch when it comes to epic architecture, rugged landscapes and resplendent shores. Culture vultures will be captivated by the history of the island, with over a dozen castles and fascinating archaeological sites to visit, and of there is course Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe.
Visit the ancient city of Ortigia, once the capital of the Mediterranean, with Arethusa's Fountain, the Temple of Apollo and Cathedral, plus the archaeological area with the Greek Theatre, Roman amphitheatre, Altar of Hieron II and the Paradiso Latomies with the Dionysius Ear.
One day tour visiting the Alcantara Gorges on the banks of the Alcantara River, on to Randazzo and then by train to Adrano. Finally to Rifugio Sapienza, 1900m high. You may take an optional ascent to the area of the main crater, 2750m high (extra charge).
Depart Taormina to the Northern side of Mount Etna. Ascend by four wheel drive mini coach to the main crater area.
Visit the Valley of Temples and the Roman villa in Piazza Armerina.
