Discover the classic sights and hidden secrets of this unspoilt Italian island.

It may sit within touching distance, but Sicily is much more than a mere extension of mainland Italy. It’s the largest of the Italian islands, but the laidback Sicilians have an identity and a still-thriving language of their own, and life moves at a slower pace. As you travel down the eastern coastline and along southern Sicily, you’ll be dazzled by the myriad cultural, natural and historical gems of this island, and charmed by the affable locals who live there.
