Sicily Holidays

Sicily, though considered to be a part of Italy, is an autonomous region in its own right. The neighbouring islands surrounding it are also considered to be a part of Sicily. Sicily is also famous for being the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and was famous in history due to its strategic location, close to the Mediterranean trade routes. Sicily is well-known for its rich and illustrious cultural and architectural heritage. Sicily also proves to be one of the most notable tourist attractions in Italy, for its bountiful lemon and orange orchards and also for being the birthplace of several imminent greats from the fields of music, literature and arts.

Sensual Sicily

Sicily caters to a varied range of senses. It makes for an interesting tourist destination for naturalists, ornithologists, volcanologists and intellectuals alike. The strait of Messina separates Sicily to the east from Calabria, in Italy. The landscape of Sicily is predominantly mountainous and Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano of Europe is located here. Sicily is also covered by dense forest areas and is home to a huge variety of birds. Sicily is visited by a huge cross-section of tourists for its ambient Mediterranean climate and stupendous structures of architectural brilliance.

General Etiquette in Sicily

Sicilian etiquette has nothing very strict or stringent. Like the rest of Italy, Sicilians also have warm gestures towards their tourists. However, both Italian and Sicilian languages are extensively used here and a little knowledge of both would prove useful.
