Sicily is home to beautiful coastlines, delicious cuisine and local produce, and perhaps one of the most famous volcanoes in the world. Now a national park, Mount Etna is Europe’s largest active volcano with a surprisingly varied terrain to explore, from barren black volcanic landscapes to lush vineyards. You can take a slow sightseeing train around the many small towns dotted about the mountain or ride the cable car which stops some 400 metres shy of the crater’s accessible summit.
In contrast, the upscale tourist town of Taormina is home to more leisurely attractions, including the 3rd century amphitheatre Il Teatro Greco and streets lined with high-end boutiques and fashionable restaurants. Keep an eye out for wedding parties making the most of the spectacular views and competing for that ultimate statement wedding shot.
The ancient Greek colony of Syracuse, and in particular its historical centre on the island of Ortygia, is a lively place to explore, packed with pleasant piazzas, Baroque buildings and countless fascinating archaeological sites and museums.
