Due to its strategic location and having played a fundamental part in both Greek and Roman history, Sicily is overflowing with ancient ruins and historical sites. Beyond these, the island boasts a dramatic coastline with idyllic beaches and sublime cuisine. Sicily is full of charming seaside towns, just waiting to be explored. The dramatic setting of Taormina on Sicily’s east coast, high up on the cliff top, looking out to sea and under the shadow of the mighty Mount Etna, which broods over the island, is quite something to behold. Fantastic food and wine can be found throughout the island, with much produce grown on Sicily, something Sicilians are rightly proud of. The enchanting Aeolian Islands with their dramatic volcanic landscapes, gin-clear water and delightful villages are a relatively unknown gem and are easily explored by either regular hydrofoil services or perhaps by hiring your own private boat to seek out hidden coves and bays and marvel at the mighty Stromboli volcano rumbling and blowing ash in the distance.
