Sicily is a word that conjures various images in the mind, most noteworthy is Etna – the tallest active European volcano or perhaps Stromboli, near the Aeolian islands. Day trips to locations nearby to observe these natural marvels are possible.
There are plenty of beaches around the island, all offering bathing opportunities. Popular spots include Cefalu, San Vito Lo Capo, Marina di Modica, Marina di Ragusa, Taormina and Messina to name just a few. Cefalu is one of the most popular spots to the north of the island.
In terms of sightseeing, the visitor who enjoys history and culture will be most well provided for. The ancient civilisations have all left their legacy. Such sites of interest to visit include Syracuse or Agrigento (care of the Greeks), Taormina or Piazza Armerina (the Romans), Palermo or Mazara del Vallo (Arab) to Marsala (the Phoenicians). Clearly there is plenty more than listed briefly here as well as several other poignant civilisations, however for a first time visitor to the island looking for a variety of experiences, clearly these offer great insights to Sicilian life and history.
Visitors interested in architecture may wish to travel to Noto, Catania or Ragusa for examples of Sicilian baroque.
