Introducing Sicily

Sicily is a fascinating island of contrasts. As the largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily has a long history of domination, and everyone from the Greeks to the Romans, Arabs, Normans and Spaniards left behind something unique to see, to taste, and to hear in the local dialect. The varied range of influences in the island’s cuisine is a huge draw in itself: you’ll find plenty of citrus, fresh seafood, handmade pasta, ricotta, couscous, and famous treats like granita, cannoli, and brioche. 

The island is home to six UNESCO World Heritage sites, including a Greek necropolis, Roman villa, Baroque towns, and Mount Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. Its wide variety of beaches range from peaceful coves with soft, white sand to rugged coastlines and dramatic black-sand beaches on the Aeolian Islands. 

If you’re looking for a more off the-beaten-track Italian experience, a villa vacation on this authentic island will more than deliver – it will surprise and delight you at every turn. Enjoy the eclectic side of Italy.

Expert Tips

“Watch an unforgettable sunset over the Trapani Salt mines, and buy some famous Trapani sea salt. Trapani salt has much more flavor than common table salt, so make sure to use less.

Also, it’s a misconception that Sicilians eat spaghetti with meatballs; if you find them on restaurant menus, it is only because tourists request them!

My favorite almond biscotti is called Piparelli, which are from the city of Messina and made with almonds, orange blossom honey, candied fruit and a mixture of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg, all sourced and processed in Sicily. Pair them with a glass of chilled Zibibbo dessert wine; the one I recommend is by C. Pellegrino. Dunk the almond biscotti in the wine and savor the flavors over a magical summer evening.”  Saffo, Managing Director, Italy Division
