SICILY: A DREAM ISLAND
Crystal-clear sea, white beaches alternating with rocky coasts and pebble shores. And even Greek, Phoenician, Arab, Norman and modern history. This is Sicily: the region of infinite variety that manages to make everyone fall in love with it.
With Alitalia and Air One getting to Sicily is even more convenient: This summer you can choose from more than 50 connections a day and go to your favorite destination: Catania, Palermo, Comiso, Trapani, Pantelleria and Lampedusa.
Sicily has never been nearer.
ONE REGION, MANY DIFFERENT WORLDS
Who said that you have to go to the tropics to enjoy a beautiful sea? This region is full of archipelagos and dream islands like Favignana, Pantelleria, Stromboli, Lipari, Panarea, Vulcano and Lampedusa, each with very different landscapes and lifestyles, and all easy to reach with a direct flight with the Alitalia Group or from airports served by us and sea connections. Here we also find some of Italy's most famous coastlines: Cefalù beach in Palermo, Cala Capreria in the Zingaro Reserve and San Vito lo Capo in Trapani are just some of the best loved tourist destinations of sea addicts from all over the world.
And, from the depth of the sea, you can climb to the summit of Etna and visit the largest active volcano in Europe, in the Catania province. Now that you're here, spend some time in this amazing province, at least to visit Piazza del Duomo and Ursino Castle, symbols of Catania's history.
Every corner of Sicily is like a history book, explaining in detail the various periods that followed each other in this land. One example is the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which will take you back to the glories of Ancient Greece with its perfectly intact architecture.
SEA AND FOOD GO WELL TOGETHER
When it comes to cuisine, we usually begin with an antipasto, or starter. But when we talk about Sicily, the first things that come to mind are the Sicilian cannolo (fried stuffed pastry), granita with brioche and the inimitable cassata. Savory dishes are also renowned throughout the world. Just think about arancini (fried rice balls), panelle (fritters), sarde alla beccafico (stuffed sardines), spaghetti ai ricci di mare (spaghetti with sea urchins) and the vastly popular pasta alla norma (with tomatoes, eggplant, ricotta and basil). Not to mention the fish, cheese and all the local produce that makes up the reputation of Sicilian cuisine.
Wash it all down with the exceptional local DOCG wines and ask for a small glass of Marsala or the sweet Passito di Pantelleria with your bill.
Pack your bags and book an Alitalia flight to amazing Sicily. Choose between Palermo, Catania, Trapani, Comiso, Lampedusa or Pantelleria and start your trip!
