About Sicily

The island of Sicily, located off the south coast of Italy is the largest of the numerous Italian islands and is surrounded by the Ionian, Tyrrhenian and Mediterranean Seas.

Parts of Sicily are on the same latitude as the coast of North African which results in a mild climate that makes the island an attractive year round destination, not just with domestic visitors from mainland Italy but abroad too. As with many of the Italian islands, the tourist season peaks in the summer months.

On Sicily's eastern coast you’ll find Mount Etna, the greatest active volcano in Europe and undoubtedly one of the regions attractions.

Perhaps in part due to its geographical location, but in the main because of its obvious attraction as a destination, Sicily features a host of regular ferry connections with neighboring islands and the Italian mainland as well as international connections with the likes of Malta and Tunisia.
