The Places

The places in Sicily are the most varied in the world. An area that winds through the Madonie mountains to the warm sea of Trapani. Currently, the mountain ranges in the largest region of Italy are three: the Peloritani mountains, the Nebrodi mountains and the already mentioned Madonie.

Being an island, the largest in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily is naturally surrounded by the sea. To the east the Ionian Sea, to the south the heart of the Mediterranean Sea and to the north and west the Tyrrhenian Sea. You are wondering what is the best in terms of spectacularity, but the answer is simple: wherever you go is beautiful – obviously excluding the big cities where for reasons of port water can not be the best.

The naturalistic landscapes are common throughout the Region. The alternation of coastline, watercourses and mountain ranges causes natural trekking routes, some of which are really demanding. An adventure in nature, the typical Mediterranean scrub, which can regenerate the spirit and reactivate the five senses in a completely natural way.

Last but not least the big cities around the Region. Palermo, Catania, Messina, Trapani and many others are well renown as jewels of civilization. The cities, although at first glance chaotic and poorly organized, have a unique soul that is able to drag the visitor. The kindness of the inhabitants and their “make you feel at home” will give an unexpected touch to the visit.

“Palermo was lovely. The most beautifully situated town in the world – it dreams away its life in the Conca d’Oro, the exquisite valley that lies between two seas. The lemon groves and the orange gardens were entirely perfect.”

Oscar Wilde

In Palermo there are so many things and so complex that I can only show a small aspect of the city. I can not, in a short evening, say everything about Palermo. I can only represent the feelings that have struck me, and even of these only a small part.
