Destinations of Sicily

Posted by Sandra Thomas-Comenole on Oct 21, 2021 7:00:00 PM

The sunny island of Sicily, the Mediterranean’s largest, is a place of wonder. Over the centuries Sicily has been home to Greek, Roman, Arab, and Norman settlers through various periods of history. This combination of civilizations has created a unique culture with a charm of its own. With medieval towns, seemingly endless countryside, beautiful beaches and majestic mountains, Sicily is an island like no other. Keytours Vacations offers tailor-made and custom packages and day trips to destinations throughout Italy!

Well sited and awash with medieval atmosphere, the destination is not visited for the town itself. The interest instead focuses on the substantial remains of Pindar's "most beautiful city of mortals", a couple of miles below. Here, strung out along a ridge facing the sea, is a series of Doric temples – the most captivating of Sicilian Greek remains and a grouping unique outside Greece.

catania | Sicily | Italy Travel | Keytours Vacations

Charismatic seaside Catania is a young, dynamic soul, inhabiting a body of narrow alleys and ornate Baroque buildings mounted on top of well-preserved remains of ancient Greek and Roman settlements. Mount Etna defines the cityscape both in terms of the striking panorama and building material - Catania is even referred to as the "grey city" for the color of lava rocks used to construct many of its buildings.
