Real Italy & Sicily 2013

Sunvil Discovery launches 2013 real Italy & Sicily brochure.

Sunvil DiscoveryItaly is a beautiful country which
cannot fail to impress. Rich in culture
and history, it has an unending list of
attractions to suit all tastes and interests.
Simply mention fashion and immediately
names like Armani, Versace, Ferragamo
and Dolce e Gabbana roll off the tongue.
It is impossible to talk about gastronomy
without thinking about Italian cuisine from
rich pastas and delicate pastries to the
mouth-watering Neapolitan ice cream.
The cities of Rome, Florence and Venice,
all UNESCO World Heritage Sites, are home to some of the world’s best known works of art from Botticelli’s painting of the ‘Birth of Venus’ to Michelangelo’s awe-inspiring paintings adorned on the roof of the Sistine chapel. Some of the best ruins of the ancient Greek world are to be found in southern Italy and Sicily – Paestum, Selinunte, Segesta and Syracuse to name but a few.
Sunvil has been a long established operator, since 1979, to the more interesting parts of Sicily and, in 2012, we added, under our Sicily Today banner, accommodation in farm and manor houses – some quite luxurious – with particular emphasis on the fresh produce, wine and local cuisine relating to each individual property. The properties are located in the interior and on the coast and can be linked via fly-drive itineraries with particular emphasis on gastronomy, the Norman culture, the wines of Sicily and the heritage of Lord Nelson, Duke of Bronte, who had close links with Sicily.
