Island in the Sun – Sicily

  • Mount Etna

  • Sicilian Hill Village- Savoca

  • Ragusa Ibla

  • Piazza Duomo cathedral

Here Comes the Sun!

‘Here comes the sun’ is an apt phrase to use in gorgeous, bright-sky of Sicily, the largest Mediterranean island, is just off the "toe" of Italy's "boot." Its rich history is reflected in sites like the Valley of the Temples, the well-preserved ruins of 7 monumental, Doric-style Greek temples, and in the Byzantine mosaics at the Cappella Palatina, a former royal chapel in capital city Palermo. On Sicily’s eastern edge is Mount Etna, one of Europe’s highest active volcanoes. If that wasn’t exciting enough, Sicily turns on its charm as it is one of Italy’s largest islands and one that has all the trappings of a whimsical vacation far from the crowds.
