Sicily is one of our favorite places on earth. Each time we go, the island situated in the Mediterranean Sea calls us back every time. Sicily almost touches mainland Italy because it is just off the tip of the Apennine peninsula where the “toe” of Italy is.
Mount Etna is the tallest active in all of Europe and is over 10,990 feet (3,350 meters). Sicily is a treasure trove of the undiscovered. Sicily contains so many lovely coastal towns, hip cities, amazing art and food that is touched by the flavors of places like Morocco.
Sicily is one of the few places on earth that have the earliest evidence of humans; dating back to about 12,000 BC. The island is filled with architectural treasures like the Valley of the Temples, the Pantalica Necropolis and Selinunte. Don’t forget the amazing Aeolian Islands! Sicily has so much to offer.
