In 1787, after visiting Sicily, Goethe famously wrote “To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything.”
Whole books have been written about Italy’s largest island, so rich is its 14,000 year history, but there are some things that immediately spring to mind when mentioning it. Sicily is an island of colour, Baroque architecture, sprawling beaches, the scent of lemon and orange blossom, a long and illustrious history, and mouth-watering food.
Whether you are a nature lover or a history buff, a fan of the outdoors or a sun worshipper, there are so many options that you will find it hard to choose how to spend your time on the island. With the port of Augusta being conveniently located between Catania and Siracusa, the options are many.
