The climate is reliably hot and dry in summer months, with mild winters. A tour across timeless hill-country to the quiet southern coast provides startling spectacles like Greek ruins at Agrigento and the equally magnificent baroque Ragusa, rebuilt after an earthquake in 1693.
The extraordinary, ancient city of Syracuse deserves as long a visit as any tourist can spend. To the north, Sicily comes close to Italy’s ‘toe’, but engineering projects are yet to bridge the Straits, so the city of Messina enjoys spectacular mainland views while retaining island status.
The island’s flavour and feel come from its climate, agriculture and sheer separation – sunshine, citrus fruits, olives and wine – and appealing, enduring differences from anywhere else on earth.
