SICILIAN

SUMMER

VIEW THE WORLD THROUGH NEW EYES

Traverse every corner of Valletta, famous for its role in TV history, with an overnight stay that gives you time to trek from St. John’s Co-Cathedral to St. Paul’s Bay. Capture the dazzling salt pans of Trapani by day or on a sunset tour with an extended evening in port. A late night in Syracuse gives you the chance to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Noto, a masterpiece of Baroque architecture that is stunning when lit up after dark. In Gozo, find your way to the UNESCO-listed Ġgantija Temples, a Neolithic limestone structure dating as far back as 3600 BCE, making it even older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids.

From archaeological parks to World War II battlefield remnants to the Plemmirio Nature Reserve, the vast and diverse environment contains any level of challenge for the explorer at heart. It holds 2,700 years of history with influence from other cultures like Spanish, Greek, Norman, and Arabic that have made a mark on their cuisine. It is also a gateway to various small villages that are perfect for a leisurely stroll through local history. Among the most notable is Noto, the “Baroque Capital” of the world.

Taormina holds a treasure trove, whether it’s the Palazzo Corvaja or Duomo di San Nicola, of ancient atmospheres that entice you to venture deep. As you wander the grounds of the Ancient Greek Theater built directly into the mountains, standing amid such ruins transports you back to ancient live theater. The surrounding peaks of Mount Etna provide an exhilarating environment. Its various foothills and pathways make it the perfect site for hiking.

Off the coast of Sicily you find the volcanic Aeolian Islands, the largest of which is Lipari. But not to worry, as the island’s last eruption took place over 1,000 years ago and the only signs of volcanic activity today are fumaroles and thermal springs. From a place in ancient Greek mythology to UNESCO World Heritage status, the Aeolian Islands and Lipari hold a rich and intriguing history. Seek the ultimate views with an invigorating hike through Monte Rosa. Archaeological excavations within the citadel tell a story dating as far back as the Neolithic era.

From the lively capital in Palermo to the fertile valley of Monreale to Cefalu on the Tyrrhenian Coast, Sicily offers incredible history, architecture and gastronomy. Palermo is the gateway to the past, with its royal tombs and fascinating Regional Archeological Museum that contains sculptures and artifacts from Sicily’s past. Not far from Palermo, further expand your architectural language by witnessing the Cathedral of Monreale, a stunning example of the Norman style. And in Cefalu, see the site of ancient Roman baths, where a Baroque-style cathedral now stands. Wherever your journey takes you in Sicily, save room for the best cannoli in all of Italy.

When it’s time for a lunch break, stop at a local restaurant and order the red prawns of Mazara del Vallo, known as ammaru russu in Sicilian. Trapani also lies beneath Mount Erice, the gateway to the archaeological site of Selinunte.
