The largest Mediterranean island, Sicily offers a striking natural landscape peppered with a wealth of historical remains. You'll find lots of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, like the Necropolis of Pantalica, as well as towering cathedrals and palaces, like the Noto Cathedral and the Royal Palace of Palermo. On the coast, you'll find beaches offering white and gold sands framed by turquoise waters. Be sure to visit Cefalu Beach and Torre Salsa, they're two of the finest. On the west coast, visit Marsala and Alcamo, the home of two celebrated wines, named after their respective towns. Along the Northwest coast, discover Palermo, the capital city. You'll find several amazing cathedrals here and a number of interesting museums and art galleries. On the east coast, explore the town of Taormina and the city of Catania. Both are nestled below the imposing Mount Etna and make a great base to explore the volcano. Also on the west coast is Syracuse. Stroll the city and marvel at the elaborate architecture. Take a trip back in time and visit the Neapolis Archeological Park, home to Teatro Greco, a giant amphitheatre that could hold 16,000 people. A journey to the far south of Sicily is also in worth your time, thanks to the extraordinary Valley of the Temples.
