Things to see and do
Sicily offers a multitude of natural, historical and traditional places to visit. Volcanoes are one of the features of this land, including Mount Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. Etna is located in the eastern part of Sicily and is an essential stop in the discovery of this land. Its spectacular eruptions over the centuries have shaped landscapes which are unique in the world.
Those interested in scenery can choose from the protected landscape of the regional parks of the Etna, Madonie and Nebrodi areas and the volcanic paradise of Pantelleria that offers breath-taking views like the "Petrusa di Notaro" (a cave which emanates fresh air) and those offered by the characteristic dammusi (typical buildings in lava stone). Valle del Bove (Valley of the Ox) with walls 1,000 metres high, the Grotta del Gelo (Ice Cave) housing the only existing example of a glacier at this latitude, the Alcantara Gorges, a dense network of channels through which the cold waters of the river of the same name flow. Here are some of the wonders that can be discovered by visiting this giant of nature. There are numerous islands around Sicily and they are all fascinating. However, the Aeolian Islands, which were classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000, merit particular attention.
The archipelago consists of seven islands: Lipari, Vulcano, Stromboli, Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi and Panarea - and a series of islets and rocks of different sizes. The history of the Aeolian Islands is inextricably linked to volcanoes, where you can dive into a deep blue sea, go on trips to the caves scattered along the coast, relax on little beaches lapped by the crystal clear waters and complete the perfect stay with good local cuisine based on fish. Another treasure of humanity recognised by UNESCO is the archaeological site of Agrigento, which was one of the most important cities of Magna Grecia.
Immersed in the green of the olive trees, almond trees, citrus trees and vineyards stretching to the sea, here is the famous Valley of the Temples. Its towering and sober monuments evoke the mythical atmosphere of the island 2500 years ago, when the old Akagras Agrigentum was a centre of power and culture.
Syracuse rises on the south-eastern coast of Sicily. The town has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2005 with the Necropolis of Pantalica. This ancient Greek colony overlooks a natural harbour bordering Ortigia, the oldest urban centre, in the east. Every corner of the city holds important archaeological evidence evoking the splendour of Magna Grecia.
Two more unmissable UNESCO sites can be added to Syracuse and the Aeolian Islands, the eight beautiful late-Baroque cities of Val di Noto and the Villa Romana del Casale. Not to mention Taormina, halfway between Messina and Catania, with its breath-taking landscape.
