About this region of Italy -Sicily / Sicilia:

Strategically positioned between Europe and Africa, Sicily is a mystical island that was once home to two of the most enlightened capitals of the west: Siracusa (Greek) and Palermo (Arab-Norman).
The capital Palermo
Church of San Giovanni
degli Eremiti in Palermo
is a bustling, noisy city with an unrivalled display of Norman art and architecture and Baroque churches, combined with a warren of medieval streets and markets. From modern Messina, the most obvious trips are to the chic resort of Taormina

and the lava-built second city of Catania. The craters of Mount Etna

shouldn't be missed.
Siracusa in the south was once the most important city of the Greek world. The south coast's greatest draw are the Greek temples at Agrigento

, while inland, Enna is typical of the mountain towns that provided defence for a succession of the island's rulers. Close by is Piazza Armerina and its Roman mosaics, and to the west, most of Sicily's fishing industry focuses on the area around Trápani.
The islands around Sicily are split into three groups (the Aeolians

, the Egadi and the Pelagie) and two strays (Ustica and Pantelleria). They are a mixture of volcanoes from the chain that stretches north to Vesuvius and up the Italian peninsula and much older islands that were once part of Africa.
Food: Pistacchio nuts. Red oranges of Sicily. Pachino tomato, crunchier, tastier and sweeter than most varieties. Cannoli is the island's best known sweet, a wafer tube filled with a cream of ricotta cheese with sugar, pistachio nuts and dried fruit. Pasta sauces: sardines, aubergines, fried courgettes, broccoli, pepperonis and capers all feature in such dishes as ncasciata
Wine: Marsala dessert wine, the best Sambuca comes from Sambuca di Sicilia, Nero d’Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Perricone
