Plan Your Sicily Vacation

Home to every great Mediterranean civilization, Sicily is a rich tapestry of art and history. A day in this paradise of deep blue skies and lush vegetation could include skiing down a snow-muffled volcano, walking through orange groves, and swimming within sight of majestic ruins. Unforgettable sights abound: the panoramic perfection of Taormina; Agrigento's Valley of the Temples; a rose-tinted moon rising over Mt. Etna; and Palermo, Monreale, Cefalu, and Catania offer a feast of Roman, Byzantine, Arab-Norman, and Baroque architecture.
