Sicily

Months we visit: April, May, August, September, October

No other island in the Mediterranean is of more strategic value than Sicily. This has seen the island fought over from the time of Carthage to World War 2 and has left it with a remarkable wealth of artistic and archaeological heritage. From the extremely well-preserved temples of Segesta and Selinute to the sparkling Byzantine and Norman treasures of Palermo and Monreale, Sicily never fails to impress. Add to the mix the Greek theatre of Taormina and the natural spectacle of Vesuvius and you cannot help but agree with Goethe's observation that "Sicily is the key to everything".
