The largest island of the Mediterranean is simply fascinating.
Separated from the Italian peninsula by the strait of Messina, it seems to have a bit of everything, from important mountain ranges - Peloritani, Nebrodi, Madonie, Iblei – to a wonderful coastline and a group of satellite islets such as the Eolie, Lipari, Ustica, Egadi. the isle of Pantelleria and the Pelagie.
Palermo, the capital, is also one of Italy's most authentic and down to earth cities, not as conspicuous as Rome or Florence, but more than a match for them in the friendliness stakes.
Then, of course, there’s Mount Etna, rising in the centre of a volcanic area of Sicily, the highest active volcano in Europe.
