The island of Sicily sits at the bottom of Italy’s ‘boot’ and is home to incredible beaches, mountains, forests and a rich culture that spans thousands of years. Mount Etna looms large over the east of the island, surrounded by fascinating villages and beach resorts, none more so than the ancient town of Taormina.

    The capital of Palermo sits on the north coast, where impressive piazzas and tour food markets serving delicious seasonal ingredients and street food dishes can be found. Sicily's culture is unique compared to the rest of Italy – there's evidence of many different traditions as you travel across the island.
