Sicily Infos

Orange trees on SicilyWhy do tourists visit Sicily? Certainly, they want to bathe in the sea and to lie in the sun. But they can do all these anywhere along the Mediterranean seaside - from Turkey to the Gibraltar. Sicily is not only a good place for summer holidays. It gives you a unique opportunity to understand the stages of progress of the European civilization and to see the beauty of the nature, for example, the Etna Volcano, which is famous all over the world.

Sicily is famous for its antiquity. They say that each stone on the road knew the hooves of Hannibal’s horse and each tavern in small villages remembered the Royal clients.

Sicily is said to be Italy of the other kind. It has the same historical background but at the same time it has lots of peculiarities. The language of Sicily also has its peculiarities. It is a mixture of the Italian and the Arabic languages. The province of Syracuse is very much alike Greece. The ancient city of Acragant is very much alike Rome. And we can’t but mention its own cuisine with its sea products, tomatoes, wine and olive oil.

Olive oil is the subject of pride on Sicily. It is interesting to visit a farm where they have their own oil press, which their great grandfathers used, and their own recipe of making olive oil, which they have been keeping since the Caesar’s time.

Sicily is considered to be a great architectural reserve with ruins of ancient Greek colonies and steeples of catholic churches. The seaside towns and cities of Sicily are situated on the vertical cliffs like swallows’ nests. Many hotels in Sicily are like museums with its historical past which only professionals know.

If you come to Sicily you can’t afford to lie in the sun on the beach the whole day, because there are a lot of things worth seeing there. If you are very tired of the sea breeze and tasty morning coffee will make you feel better the next day. So, if you are going to Sicily take a pair of spare trainers with you.
