Sicily is first and foremostEtna, the highest volcano in Europe, which you can see smoking and spitting from the plane, the boat or the train. From the roof terraces of the voluptuous Catania too. Sicily is above all the Sicilians, whose hospitality and spontaneous way of showing you the way, sharing a recipe and chatting with you even if your command of Italian leaves something to be desired. And it's also the joy of shopping for fruit, vegetables, cheese, olives and cold cuts, and of eating out, in the street near the fish market or in a great restaurant. It's no secret that a lot of things are settled around a table in Sicily! And then there are the pearls and wonders, the valley of the Temples more beautiful than the Acropolis, the cathedral and the city of Palermo, the peninsula of Syracuse, the beautiful and very touristy Toarmina, the archaeological remains and the perched villages. Take the time to swim in the sea and sail to the islands of the island, the windmills blessed by the god of the winds. But don't joke about the Sicilian mafia, you'll never know if your interlocutor is one or not. Do as the locals do, follow a religious procession through the streets of Palermo and rent a small house on a southern beach to spend a weekend with friends, drinking and tasting before putting on an elegant outfit to go and listen to an opera under the stars. And don't forget your travel guide to consult on many occasions.
