Taormina is next on the agenda. A place that has survived many invasions throughout its history is a special place to see. Here there is a live volcano that draws attention. There are plenty of 3rd Century BCE buildings.
In the south of Siragusa, there is an epic amphitheater as well as an adorable island named Ortygia with an original settlement and stunning alleyways. The medieval island’s small streets lead to a gorgeous plaza filled with life, fountains, and ruins.
Heading to Agrigento, this place is known for its Green ruins and you can visit the Tempio della Concordia, which was named after the goddess of harmony. Built using marble way back in the 5th Century, it was later knocked down, however, despite this, it still holds its magic and can really transport you back to a place in time.

Shortly you will arrive in Palermo. Similar to Naples, the city is famous for its architecture, shopping and of course, its food. You will find an abundance of UNESCO World Heritage Sites here and discover all the fun things that are available for you here. With street markets that are alive with noise and color, everything here will leave you feeling as though you have just stepped into a movie.
“To have seen #Italy without having seen #Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything.”

“In Italy, food is an expression of love. It is how you show those around you that you care for them. Having a love for food means you also have a love for those you are preparing it for and for yourself.”
