THE LAND OF SICILY

More than a mere island, it’s a world to discover! Everywhere you can find evidences of its multicultural history… Arabs, Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Swabians, Angevins and Aragoneses made this island their own  and Sicily shows still today this history background like no other Region in the world! Besides it is a inimitable place full of art, archaeology, astounding landscapes, and last but not least, excellent food!

 

POPULATION

Sicily is a very populated land, especially in the seacoast zones where you can find cities of  Palermo, Taormina, Catania, Agrigento and Siracusa with their Greek temples,  Roman amphitheatres, Norman castles and churches.
