If I had to choose one of the regions of Italy to go on vacation, so I would choose Sicily immediately.
A daunting task to decide among the masterpieces that our boot offers, each with its peculiarities and excellence that make it unique.
But I choose Sicily and I can recommend it for the perfect holiday. Why?
Because whether you go on vacation with your family or friends, you will find the right solution for you.
On the beach you are not forced to buy a sunbed and umbrella at exorbitant prices, you can choose to do so or take advantage of the many free beaches.
Do you want to be around people? In San Vito lo Capo, for example, you will find the right entertainment; a place suitable for all age groups and at the same time with well-kept beaches and clean sea.
If, on the other hand, you prefer the remote coves or nature reserves, you can indulge yourself.
Have you ever heard of the Riserva dello Zingaro? Miles and miles of uncontaminated nature, an area rich in different species of flora and fauna and ideal for organizing trekking paths among its paths. You find it near San Vito lo Capo, so you can decide to combine fun with paradise beaches.
In Sicily, nature still has a well-defined fragrance and is that of weeds, ripe fruit and vegetables. The colors are those of the fiery sunsets from the Taormina Amphitheater or simply from a view of the sea.
You can find the best views by losing yourself in the narrow streets of Palermo, a veritable city that reveals its soul and does not make you moan to like yourself at all costs.
If you are looking for the fabulous sea choose Lampedusa, and that’s it. Do not be fooled by the usual comments about the cracks of a phenomenon that has threatened the fate of a destination that reserves only beauties.
When I saw the Beach of the Rabbits for the first time in my life I was moved. It had never happened to me before that the emotion exploded in me like that. Has it happened to you too?
The best food you can find on the street and if you are not biased towards street food, in Palermo you can give yourself to the mad joy by ordering all kinds of food.
If you prefer the restaurant, you can afford it without fainting. The portions are huge and the quality is excellent and homemade almost everywhere.
The markets in Sicily are among the most colorful in Italy, people are always celebrating. Do you want to take a look at country festivals by area and season? I propose you a list updated to 2014
I have been to Sicily several times and to reach it I have tried every kind of vehicle. From the plane to the ferry to Sicily … even the train: nineteen straight hours, as tiring as it is fun, spent with three friends. One of those experiences that I will never forget in my life.
Obviously I have not named all the wonderful places I visited in Sicily, the Aeolian Islands, Giardini Naxos, Favignana and other wonders are missing.
