Description

The antique Trinacria (name of Sicily during the Ancient Greece Ages) is a land of thousand faces; it is wonderful Mediterranean island that sinuously lies in a deep blue sea, surrounded by many smaller islands, such as the Aeolian ones and Ustica to the north, the Pelagie ones and Pantelleria to the south, the Egadi islands to the west. Art and culture between sun and sea. Sicily was the crossroads of many races, cultures and traditions for centuries: blue eyes peeking out under jet black hair, words of Arabic origins and French ones, clear Hellenic geometries side by side with Baroque style curls and voluptuous Liberty style curves. Past and present, ancient and modern coexist in Sicily. Final stop of the Grand Tour in the XVIII century, it is one of the Italian regions with the higher number of sites protected by UNESCO: the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, the Villa del Casale in Piazza Armerina, the Baroque style buildings of eight towns in Val di Noto, the Aeolian islands, the historical city centre of Siracusa and the necropolis of Pantalica. There are many historical and artistic remains in Sicily and reveal the assiduous frequentation of different people who create a reality unique in the world. 1500Km of coastline, alternating fine or pebble sand, small or high cliff with various shades, from yellow ocher to black lava. In fact, Sicily is also the region with the most intense volcanic activity (Etna, Stromboli and Vulcano). Sicilian gastronomy mixes different cultures: from the typical street food of local markets to the Sicilian granite, from Trapani's couscous to cassata and cannoli, from sausage to cheese. In short, a journey within a journey, discovering a proud land that enchants and amazes from the first impact.
