Taormina, most celebrated tourist resort in Sicily

taormina teatro - Taormina, most celebrated tourist resort in Sicily

Modern Taormina is a refined centre built on Monte Tauro and sits snugly between rocky slopes and the smooth Ionian Sea, not forgetting the lush beaches of Mazzarò, Lido Spisone and Mazzeo. Taormina can claim to be the most celebrated tourist resort in the whole of Sicily. It first attracted travelers in the 18th century by offering accommodation following the suppression of the religious guilds in 1866. But its name really took off in 1868 when Prussian Baron Ottone Geleng was inspired by Goethe to see this corner of Italy for himself. The Baron spent his time painting and his work was soon exhibited in Paris. Taormina then became a magnet for Europe’s elite. Another stroke of good fortune was an outbreak of cholera in Palermo which encouraged the nobility of the city to take refuge in 1875. The sumptuous villas are a result of this period. Read more>>

Trapani, most strategic spot in the west of Sicily

Accommodation in Trapani, Sicily

Trapani is getting more and more attention as a low budget holiday destination and as a starting point for a tour around Sicily. This is mainly because Ryanair offers cheap flights from different parts in Europe. A beautiful historic centre, gateway to the Egadi Islands and having hosted the 8th and 9th acts of the Louis Vuitton Cup, part of the Americas Cup, made Trapani become famous in recent times. The nearby island of Pantelleria, and the Aegadian Islands are also administratively a part of Trapani province.

At the foot of Mount Etna - Catania

Catania is the second largest city of Sicily and is the capital of the province which bears its name. With some 350,000 inhabitants (750,000 in the metropolitan area) it has the second highest population density on the island. The city’s patron saint is Saint Agatha. Catania is located on the east coast of the island, half way between Messina and Siracusa and is at the foot of the active volcano Mount Etna. It was founded in the 8th century BC by Greek colonizers from Chalcis in Euboea led by Euarchos.  It was extensively destroyed by earthquakes in 1169 and 1693 and by lava flows which ran over and around it into the sea. The first Sicilian university was founded there in 1434.

Palermo, Capital of Sicily

GdS - Edizione di Palermo

Palermo is the principal city and administrative seat of the autonomous region of Sicily, Italy as well as the capital of the Province of Palermo. Inhabitants of Palermo in Italian are referred to as Palermitani or poetically Panormiti. Palermo was founded in the 8th century BC by Phoenician tradesmen around a natural harbor on the north-western coast of Sicily. The Phoenician name for the city may have been Zîz, but Greeks called it Panormus, meaning all-port, because of its fine natural harbor. It should be noted however that the city was never a Greek city-state, but was later part of the Greek speaking Eastern Roman Empire. Palermo is widely considered to be the most conquered city in the world. read more>>

Marina di Ragusa

Holidays in Sicily: Marina di Ragusa

Holidays in Sicily: Marina di Ragusa

Thanks to the colours of its landscapes, to the number of artistic and cultural sites that all of its cities offer, to a crystal clear sea, and last but not least, to its wines and typical products, Sicily is an inexhaustible source or culture, amusement and relaxation. Every part of Sicily is worth a visit, no matter if you decide to visit the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, to sleep in Ragusa or to lay on Mondello beach: in any case you can be sure to spend an unforgettable holiday.Sicily is much appreciated both by those tourists who wish to spend a few relaxation days, laying on the beach, sunbathing and freshening up swimming in a sea that could not be clearer than that, but also by those who use their days off to discover the artistic wonders that certainly in Italy are not lacking. The best choice, when you decide to visit Sicily, is mixing these two ideas of holiday, alternating a visit to the monuments and symbols of the beautiful Sicilian cities and a relaxing day on the beach. As far as the cities to visit is concerned, in Sicily you are really spoilt for choice: from the historic centre of Palermo, with Piazza Pretoria and the Cathedral, just to name two of the best-known sites of the city, to Catania, with its baroque monuments, there are plenty of things to see in Sicily. But Italian and foreign tourists do not appreciate only the big cities: also the smallest villages have much to offer. If you wish to spend unforgettable holidays in Sicily, for example, you can go to Marina di Ragusa.

Marina di Ragusa is a small village (about 2,500 inhabitants) in the province of Ragusa, but in spite of its small size, it is very popular and much appreciated by tourists. A fishing village in the beginning, with the passing of time Marina di Ragusa has become an important seaside resort, which has been awarded important prizes like the Blue Flag. And that is not all: according to yahoo.it and Tripadvisor, the beach of Marina di Ragusa has been ranked first among the most beautiful Italian beaches, with great satisfaction of Mayor Nello Dipasquale; this award, indeed, recognizes the efforts that have been made in the last few years to make Marina di Ragusa even more beautiful and welcoming. And those efforts have been recognized also by the 600,000 tourists that every summer decide to spend their holidays in this village, attracted by its golden beaches, by the amusements that it offers and by its proximity to many interesting artistic and cultural sites. And if you go to Marina di Ragusa in August you will also have the chance to take part in a series of events that are notably keenly felt by local people: until some decades ago on the 14th of August people celebrated the end of rural works, and nowadays people still celebrate, on the 15th of August, with a game called “legno a mare”, a long procession on the sea that includes many boats, theatre and music shows and the unmissable fireworks.

Rome has a glorious monumentality that it wears without reverence. Its architectural heirlooms are buzzed around by car and Vespa as if they were no more than traffic Islands. This is my personal website, it is a sort of tourist information, tourist services and as well as information on accommodation and the sights on the city of Rome, Caput mundi!

Rome the “eternal city” is so called because it is a place of great beauty, contrast and life. Rome is an eclectic city: the religious world center of Catholic Church, the fabulous ruins of the center of the Roman Empire, and modern, bustling Rome. All three seem incongruous, yet they live inside and beside each other with great ease. You will soon realize Rome was build to rule and dominate the world. Everything is on a massive scale, solid and “eternal”.

My favorite places are:The Vatican and St.Peters Basilica,Pantheon,Palazzo Massimo alle Terme,Museo e Galleria Borghese,Roman Forum,Palatine and Colosseum.
