Sicily holidays

Strategically located at the crossroads of the western world, Sicily is an island steeped in ancient history dating back to the Greeks and Romans all the way through to the Normans, Arabs, French and British. Combined with the unsurpassed number of historical sites, the island features a wealth of natural attractions with azure blue seas lapping secluded bays against a backdrop of blue skies and the dramatic and brooding Mount Etna. Unforgettable sights abound, whether it’s the stunningly located medieval town of Taormina, the Doric temples of Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples or the Roman, Byzantine and baroque architecture of Palermo, Monreale, Cefalù, and Catania.
