Our Favourite Part of Sicily – Taormina
Personally, our favorite part of the island and arguably the most popular, is the seaside town of Taormina. Here you will find absolutely everything you could want and need on an Italian vacation, shopping, beautiful beaches, culture, hiking, gelato, cannoli and Michelin restaurants!
There are many other beautiful parts of to the Sicilian island that are just as alluring and interesting as Taormina and the following articles should help you plan a spectacular trip to Sicily.
Palermo – The Capital of Sicily
The biggest city in Sicily and often described as a cultural melting pot, Palermo is home to Italy’s largest Opera House, authentic Sicilian street food, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and much more.
Palermo hosts an international airport and plenty of public transport such as buses and trains but for the most part you can see most of the city on foot from your hotel. The architecture of this city will absolutely blow you away, be sure to pack the camera!
Syracuse or Syracusa in Italian, is well known for it’s ancient ruins and historical heritage. Whether you plan to stay on Ortigia island (not accessible by car but by foot or segway) or another area of the city, we have you covered!
One thing is for sure, the bright colours and smells of the Syracuse market (held every morning) are not to be missed. You will be well stocked for a picnic of tasteful Sicilian delights.
Located on the East coast of Sicily, Catania is the second largest city in Sicily, home to a very busy international airport and commercial seaport, it is also rich with culture. The town centre of Catania is relatively small and easy to get around by foot starting from Duomo Square. After exploring the historical city, don’t forget to try Catania’s signature dish, Pasta alla Norma, made with ricotta cheese, hearty tomato sauce and fried chunks of eggplant/aubergine.
