A dream trip in the land of harmonious contrasts

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and in its 26,000 km² you find plenty of cities of art, nature reserves and wonderful coasts. Every corner of the region has its own character and its particular landscape, culture and gastronomy. There is no ideal time to visit Sicily as each season of the year offers multiple possibilities to get to know this magical land. Due to the vast territory and the incredible density of points of interest, to discover and appreciate the whole of Sicily according to the slow turism philosophy and local experience of Caesar Luxury Travel, it would take at least a month. In this article we will analyze all the areas of Sicily, always ready to organize tailor-made experiences based on your wishes and the time you have available.

Our virtual tour starts from the capital Palermo: this city will remain forever in your heart, it is a collection of scents, colors and sounds. Its famous markets will show you a slice of real life, its artistic and cultural heritage will leave you speechless, its food will make you understand the true essence of Italian cuisine. We recommend that you spend at least 3 days visiting the city.

After visiting the nearby Monreale we move west to discover beautiful and picturesque places like Castellammare del Golfo, Scopello, the Zingaro Nature Reserve, San Vito Lo Capo and Erice: only this small area of ​​Sicily requires no less than 10 days to be visited and enjoyed to the full. There is something for everyone: sea, ancient villages and natural parks.

Continuing along the coast we meet Trapani, from here ferries leave for the splendid island of Favignana, a true paradise with a dream sea where you can spend at least 3 days in total relaxation. You then arrive in Marsala to visit the historic center, the Stagnone Islands and the cellars that produce the famous liqueur.

We move to the southern side of Sicily, passing through other interesting places such as Mazara del Vallo and Sciacca, we arrive in Agrigento: here you can visit unique attractions in the world such as the Valley of the Temples and the Scala dei Turchi, in a wonderful mix of cultures.

Endless beauty also in the south-east, thanks to cities like Ragusa, Scicli, Marzamemi, Modica, Noto and Syracuse and natural paradises such as the Reserve of Vendicari and Capo Passero. It is the leitmotiv of Sicily: art and nature, tradition and cultural mixtures. A unique and special mix.

We go up the east coast towards the lively Catania, passing through the Simeto Oasis, to enter the area of ​​the Etna Park. A little further up here is Taormina, a precious pearl symbol of Sicily. A vacation in the east and south-east of the region takes at least 15 days.

We conclude our journey with the northern coast of Sicily: once again we find many alternatives: seaside resorts such as Capo d’Orlando, Milazzo and Cefalù mixed with extraordinary natural parks such as the Madonie and Nebrodi.

Do you think the program is already rich enough? True, but we talked mainly about the coastal areas. The Sicilian hinterland is equally fascinating and deserves to be explored: Segesta, Bronte, Paternò, Caltanissetta, Gangi, Enna are just some of the incredible places that you will discover while entering the heart of the region.

Dulcis in fundo (it’s appropriate to say this), Sicilian cuisine. Impossible not to analyze one of the most important gastronomic traditions in Italy, so here are our tips on the dishes that you should absolutely taste during your trip to Sicily: arancine, cous cous, cannoli, iris, sfincione, cassata, granita, pane e panelle, caponata , sarde a beccafico, almond paste, pasta alla norma, fish and shellfish.
