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. The province of Trapani alone produces more wine than the entire regions of Tuscany or Piedmont or such nations as Hungary, Austria or Chile. Find more about Trapani here>>

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>>

Golfing is better in Sicily

Golf Hotels in Sicily

Golfing is better in Sicily!

Although in many Italian regions winter does not seem to be coming to an end, it is almost time to think about summer holidays and to book a hotel in the city you have chosen. One of the most popular destinations in Italy, as far as sea holidays is concerned, is Sicily, with its sea, wonderful landscapes, rich historical, artistic and cultural heritage and fine food. For their summer holidays many Italians, as well as people from abroad, choose Sicilian beaches, which in many cases are every bit as beautiful as the most exotic ones.

However, Sicily has many other aces in the hole, and has much to offer to its tourists also in terms of golf. The number of people who have a passion for this sport is increasing, also due to the sport deeds – and other kinds of deeds – of champions like Tiger Wood, who in the last few years has certainly promoted the sport he is excellent in. In Italy the increasing success of this sport is also due to the great results achieved by the Molinari brothers and Matteo Manassero, who became professional when he was 17, bringing to the fore a sport that otherwise would not be so popular in Italy, at least as far as the interest of media is concerned.

For all the golf lovers, old and new, there is no such thing as spending a few days in Sicily, where you can find some wonderful golf courses and hotels with spa, perfect for relaxing and recovering your strength after spending a day on the course. Sicily is the ideal region to practice an open-air sport like golf, with its mild climate and favorable climatic conditions that give you the possibility to play also in winter. In winter, indeed, when in other Italian regions people have chattering teeth and playing golf is unpleasant, if not impossible, the mild temperature of Sicily does not stop the lovers of this sport. An edge over also for the tourist sector of the region, which can be seasonally adjusted also with golf. Moreover, you do not need to worry about summer temperatures, which might be very high in Sicily, since in many areas of the island it is dry and windy, thus it is easier to stand the heat.

There are golf courses in many Sicilian provinces. Near Catania, for example, there are courses that offer you an unmatchable view of Etna, while near Trapani playing golf might mean immersing in the charm of the Madonie National Park. Other interesting golf courses in Sicily are the ones near Ragusa, which are only few minutes away from the most popular beaches of the province, and the course of Pantelleria, where you can play being literally surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea.

If you want to mix golf and sea holidays, or you are looking for a golf course where you can play even when summer takes long to come, Sicily is what you are looking for.

It is the most populous and largest municipality in Italy and is among Europe’s major capitals in terms of the amount of terrain it covers.

Vacation apartments in thr center of RomeIt is the city with the highest concentration of historical and architectural riches in the world. Its historical centre, outlined by the enclosing Aurelian Walls, layering nearly three thousand years of antiquity, is an invaluable testimony to the European western world’s cultural, artistic and historical legacy and in 1980 it was, together with the Holy See’s property beyond the confines of the Vatican State as well as the Basilica of St. Paul outside the Walls, were added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List .
Rome, the heart of Catholic Christianity, is the only city in the world to host an entire foreign state within its confines, the enclave of the Vatican City, and it is for this very reason that it is often referred to as the capital of two States.
Over 16% of the world’s cultural treasures are located in Rome (70% in all of Italy).
