Selinunte and Segesta
Plan your holiday in Sicily and visit Selinunte, the famous “ghost” city where you can discover a series of ruins dating back to Greek rule and from where you can enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the African sea. Hop onto your quad bike and explore the trails in the Belice Nature Reserve, venturing deeper into the landscape until you reach the sand dunes of Selinunte. Admire scenery that combines archaeology, the sea and the countryside: visit Segesta to admire its magnificent Doric-style Greek temple which stands alone in the middle of wild hills.
The Aegadian Islands: Favignana
In this corner of the Mediterranean, an hour by ferry and half an hour by hydrofoil from Trapani, the Egadi archipelago is revealed in all its beauty. Through nature and silence, the islands reveal the culture of an ancient land of tuna fishermen through colours and scents. Here, surrounded by uncontaminated countryside, the resort holds the promise of a secluded and unforgettable holiday.
Favignana is the blue that lulls you. It is the scent of freshly baked brioche filled with pistachio cream, freshly caught sea urchins. It is a house with white lime plaster and blue window frames. It is a butterfly-shaped island from which to depart and return.
Dive into the blue waters of Favignana’s enchanting coves, including Cala Rossa, Cala Azzurra and the cove of Bue Marino, one of the most stunning places to swim, a true paradise of crystal-clear blue waters, with cliffs, ancient tuff quarries, tunnels and underwater caves, perfect for all snorkelling and diving enthusiasts.
The Aegadian Islands: Levanzo
Enjoy an incredible experience by a jeep to explore the island of Levanzo, the smallest and oldest island of the archipelago.
Explore the Grotta del Genovese and the prehistoric graffiti inside it: full of allure and mystery, the cave is covered by 33 engravings depicting mostly animals, such as deer, bulls, oxen, felines and horses, and some human figures. Some of the animals depicted were sacred to the goddess of fertility and it is believed that the cave was indeed a place of initiation rites and sacrifices.
Palermo, packed with stunning sites
Explore the city of Palermo, with its impressive Arab-Norman cathedral, the Palazzo dei Normanni, seat of the Sicilian Parliament, and the famous Palatine Chapel inside it dating back to 1130.
Stroll along the ancient Corso Vittorio Emanuele and admire the superb façades of the grand buildings and churches built during the Baroque period. Go as far as the Praetorian Fountain and visit the Martorana church and the church of St Catherine of Alexandria, with its cloister, a splendid example of Baroque art.
Long beaches of golden sand stretch along the unique coastline of Palermo offering a perfect place for families looking for beautiful and safe areas where their children can play without a care in the world.
Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples
Take a break from the sun, sea and relaxation on the beach by planning a trip to Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples, one of the most important testimonies of Greek culture and art.
Lose yourself as you explore this magical place, ancient Akragas. The main temples include the Temple of Heracles, built at the end of the 6th century BC, the Temple of Concord, which, together with the Parthenon, has retained all its ancient charm. Along with the Temple of Juno and Temple of Zeus, the agora area, the Greek, Roman and early Christian necropolis just outside the ancient city.
The Aeolian Islands: Vulcano and Lipari
Visit the Aeolian Islands to enjoy the perfect holiday for sun and sea lovers: stroll through the narrow streets of Lipari and sink your toes into the black sand of the island of Vulcano.
On Lipari, the white beach at the foot of the pumice quarries offers crystal-clear, Caribbean-coloured waters thanks to the gravelly seabed created by past mining activity. Visit the majestic Cathedral of St Bartholomew and the Bernabo Brea Archaeological Museum, one of the most important museums in Italy; then treat yourself to the spectacle of a breathtaking sunset over the Faraglioni by boat.
Then, head off to the island of Vulcano: don’t miss the thermal mud pool, Black Sand beach and the Scoglio delle Sirene (Mermaids’ Rock) among the countless attractions.
Make memories you will cherish forever.
