1. PALERMO:

It can be described as exotic, chaotic, sultry, and vibrant. Palermo is Sicily’s capital and its largest city From its famous tree markets laden with aromatic spices. Its Grand churches and opulent palaces It’s a very energetic and unique place. You have the wonderful Cathedral and the most important architectural monuments in Sicily, built in 1184. By the Nolans as a reconverted Christian Church on a Muslim mosque.

Other highlights are the neoclassical Teatro Massimo. Which is Italy’s largest Opera House and among the most renowned, especially when you look at the Scala in Milan.

2. SYRACUSE: (Sicily)

Sidikusa is a city on the Ionian coast of Sicily. It’s known for its ancient ruins, and it can be split into two different areas: TJ Island. Which is linked to the mainland by a short footbridge, and, of course, the main town, the small Baroque Island.

3. ORTIGIA:

The historic Centre of Syracuse is widely considered one of the most beautiful destinations in Italy. It’s been inhabited for over 3,000 years and is renowned for its Greek heritage. It’s a UNESCO Landmark for its remarkable testimony of Mediterranean cultures over the centuries. It does make for a perfect weekend Escape in any season. Impressive Church facades, outdoor restaurants, and elegant piazzas are also surrounded by the sea.

4. SCICLI: (Sicily)

This is less well known than its prestigious neighbours, such as Ragusa and Natto, but it’s just as fascinating and beautiful, and it’s highly recommended for you to visit, especially if you’re ever in Southeastern Sicily. It sits in a gorge just a few miles from the long sandy beaches, and the town shares much of its history with other UNESCO heritage site towns, but like the towns in the area, it was totally rebuilt in pure Sicilian Baroque style, and this is why it’s such a joy just to wander around.

5. CEFALU:

This is a perfect representation of the quintessential Sicilian Seaside town. Narrow cobblestone streets, colourful buildings, and waves washing strong from balconies are all common sights during your holiday, but you can delve into some of the city’s history along the mediaeval wash houses set to be the residents of the Norma King or admire the Zantin Mosaic Interiors with the Norman Cathedral. Heading down to the seafront, you’ll discover Sandy stretches of Beach and a small Port filled with little fishing boats and, of course, fishermen tendering their nets. For the best views of the town, you can hike up Loroka, which can be tough, but the views are totally worth it.

6. TRAPANI: (Sicily)

A city in Western says crescent-shaped coastline at the Western tip offering views as far as the agadian islands is a 17th century Watchtower but we’re going to take a look at the near Island fabignana the largest of the agari archipelago located around four miles off the west coast of Sicily now favignana is not your classic touristy island with thousands of ready-made activities organised by local operators and promoted on every corner but it’s rather a quiet place you can climb to the castle of Santa Catarina or you can go diving or circumnavigate the island by boat or scooter which is entirely up to you but if you plan to spend the summer on febinana you should book your stay well in advance.

7. AEOLIAN ISLANDS:

    The Aeolian islands are a gorgeous volcanically created archipelago right off the northern coast of Sicily lipberry is the largest and the easiest to get to and thus the most bustling now these islands offer natural beauty but also a historic charm the town feels relaxed and especially if you’re coming from the mainland with this attractive Harbour with its historic streets and the passages is really busy by early and standards but as well as being the main fairy port Lipari has a castle Citadel the Norman Cathedral dating from the 12th century and a very impressive Museum so if you do plan to come here outside of the main town the best places to stay in Lipari are perfect for anyone looking for an Island Escape.

    8. CATANIA: (Sicily)

    Sitting on the eastern coast of Sicily at the foot of Mount Edna, this town offers something for everyone. Following a huge volcanic eruption in the 1600s, most of the old town was destroyed, but after this calamity, it took a long time to rebuild, but thanks to the stamina and determination of the locals, it’s back in bloom once more. So Catania is a lively city with shopping streets still holding a fish market, showing that its port is still important even after centuries of making the city a commercial centre, but it’s also a musical city, so as I said, it has something for everyone.

    9. NOTO:

    City in Southeastern Sicily known for its Baroque architecture including the reconstructed 18th century Cathedral so if you’re one of those tourists that like architectural Styles then this place is for you along with seven other towns in the valdinato area it’s designated a UNESCO world heritage site so noto is a how can I put this architectural Paradise with one of the most beautiful historic senses in Sicily everywhere you look is a gem whether it’s a fountain an arch a church a palace or even a staircase or balcony so you can stay either right in notto within walking distance to all the attractions or you can stay further away in the Sicilian Countryside so I think it’s a wonderful town to spend a day in.

    10: TAORMINA: (Sicily)

    Now, I recommend this as a great day trip or even for a relaxing weekend. It’s one of the best places in Sicily to visit, especially if you’re travelling down the East Coast to Catania. It’s roughly a one hour drive from the Catania Airport, which makes it really easy to visit as part of a wider Sicilian adventure. The streets are open into terraces, and each one has that postcard worthy view of the sea or even the mountain. The best known view that’s been immortalised by painters for centuries is from the Glenmark Greek Theatre, built in the 3rd Century BC by the Greeks and completely rebuilt a century later by the Romans. It’s still largely intact and used for performances, but you have to admit it’s pretty impressive.

    There you have it, folks, a new and improved Sicily that I highly recommend that you visit. I’m sure Sicily’s probably not on your list of places to travel, but give it a try. There are plenty of things that you would typically do in the larger parts of Italy, but try Sicily, and I’ll see you all on the next one.
    thank you.
