Flights to Sicily

The football to Italy’s boot, Sicily may well be Italian but it is often a law unto itself. The unmistakable soundtrack of The Godfather films immediately spring to mind the minute you land on this enigmatic little island that bursts with the lavish influences of the Greeks, Arabs and Romans.

Anyone searching for adventure of the culinary kind should book flights to Sicily, where one of the world’s best cuisines await. Exotic and beautifully spiced thanks to the island’s proximity to the coast of Africa; delicious dishes, delectable little morsels and creatures from the sea present a treasure trove of flavours as unique to this little island as its sights and culture.

It’s easy to walk off any excesses with hikes and treks in the stunning Sicilian Mountains and surrounding natural landscapes. Enjoy the beauty of the Nebrodi Mountains, Madonie National Park and the infamous Mount Etna volcano, an impressive 3323 metres high.

Remarkably diverse, all of Sicily towns and cities are magical in their own way. The 8th century city of Catania brims with markets and ancient amphitheatres while Celafu, in the shadow of Etna, has a handsome medieval old town and sparkling beaches. Erice towers over Sicily, showing off spectacular views from under its very own cloud while Marsala is where to sip the locally made amber nectar. Enjoy the combination of spas and carnivals in lively Sciacca or the colourful ceramics of Caltagirone. Sicily’s fashion capital sits in the dramatic hilltop town of Agira, with over 100 boutiques while gastronomic heaven lies in Ragusa’s Michelin starred restaurants.

Miles and miles of sandy beaches sweep like a golden ribbon around the island, while inland there are mountains and meadows. Stay in a sea front villa or a mountain top apartment surrounded by carpets of vineyards and olive groves. Black sand or white, deserted coves or chic beach resorts, parties until sunrise or relaxing at sundown, Sicily may be an island of contrasts but it is all the better for it.
