Federico the Second, one of the most illuminated characters of the Italian Middle Age, once wrote “I don’t envy heaven to God because I am satisfied to be living in Sicily”. Certainly, this may be exaggerated, carries a little truth, because this region is magical, a true gem where culture and history are the perfect match, where food and traditions rule immersed in wonderful unspoiled nature. The historic centre of Palermo and the baroque city of Noto are unmissable, not to mention the wonderful archaeological sites such as Agrigento and Syracuse. Moving further north, the Aeolian Islands dominates the sea, scattered with small villages overlooking the ocean where one can breathe an ancient air through landscapes sculpted over time by volcanic eruptions. Traveling on the eastern Sicily is a unique experience, a symphony of the senses, a fairy tale that turns into a wonderful reality. This unique place will fascinate travellers with its small typical baroque villages perched on the verdant hills, a unique gastronomic culture, unforgettable sunsets. A perfect place where art, history, culture, and tradition come together in perfect harmony: a place of wonders, ‘the most beautiful region of Italy: an unprecedented mix of colours, scents, lights, a great pleasure’ to quote Sigmund Freud.
