Sicilia (Sicily)

© noheadimg

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean. Its strategic location has attracted invaders and the island has been occupied numerous times in its history. The colonizers have left an interesting mix of Greek temples, Roman ruins, Norman castles and churches, while the Arabs and Byzantines built impressive domes.

Palermo in the northwest is Sicily's capital. The city is somewhat neglected, but still quite interesting. On the other side of the island stands the active volcano of Mount Etna.

Other interesting places on Sicily include the Greek ruins at Syracuse and those at Taormina, as well as the 12th-century cathedral of Monreale.

There are fantastic beaches all around Sicily. Accommodation and restaurants are available in most of the island's towns.
