The Mediterranean’s largest island, Sicily is as culturally rich as it is beautiful. It boasts superb Norman architecture, exuberant Roman floor mosaics, Arab-inspired gardens, and probably the finest Greek temples to be found anywhere in the world. Alongside this, the island has some magnificent natural scenery, from volcanic Mount Etna to the quiet beaches in the south.
