The largest and most populous island in the Mediterranean, Sicily is blessed with a gorgeous geography – long white beaches lapped by turquoise shallows, fruit-clad hills climbing towards gorgeous mountains, windswept offshore islets, and, two entertainingly fiery but quite harmless volcanoes. It’s an extremely colorful place, with an intriguingly mixed culture, cuisine and architecture, along with its surrounding minor islands: Lipari, Vulcano, Stromboli, Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi and Panarea.
