Experience the capital city, Palermo

Fly to Palermo and you’ll immediately get a perfect impression of the Sicilian way of life. The capital of Sicily is diverse, colourful and above all, extremely lively. You will especially notice this at one of the historic street markets, such as Mercato Ballarò. You will be amazed by all the fresh Italian products. Lemons, olives, ham and fish will immediately appeal to all your senses. Also admire the historic buildings in Palermo. Over the centuries, Sicily has been inhabited by various cultures and this is reflected in the architecture. Visit the Palazzo dei Normanni for its Arab-Norman style of architecture or take a look inside the Palermo Cathedral. Climb the spiral staircase to the roof for a stunning view of the city. If you are fond of opera, don't miss the incredible acoustics of the Teatro Massimo. Buy a ticket for a performance and enjoy an unforgettable evening in Italy's largest opera house.

"Sicily lets you discover the seductiveness of southern Italy with its unique landscapes, fascinating history and the most delicious flavours."

Why not start your holiday in Catania?

Sicily has several airports and Transavia flies to two destinations. Besides Palermo, you can also choose Catania. Hire a car and drive within an hour to Mount Etna, one of the most famous and most active volcanoes in the world. Climb up through the unique landscape for an unforgettable view of the surrounding area. Not a fan of climbing? Take a cable car to just below the crater. On a clear day, you may even spot the Italian mainland from here. After your climb, reward yourself with a visit to Taormina. Admire the Isola Bella peninsula from the beaches to completely unwind. Taormina is a city with ancient origins and has a stunning Greco-Roman theatre where gladiators used to fight to the death. You will also find a combination of historical buildings and beautiful sandy beaches in the fishing village of Cefalù. If you are a wine lover, head to one of the many wine bars in the picturesque streets and enjoy outstanding Sicilian wine.

The south of Sicily: so much more to discover

There is just as much to see and taste on the southern side of Sicily. You’ll find impressive Greek temples nestled between the almond, eucalyptus and pine trees near the city of Agrigento. You can also marvel at the Scala dei Turchi, the 'staircase of the Turks'. These are white chalk cliffs on the coast that look absolutely stunning in the evening light. Make sure you don’t forget to sample all the good things Sicily has to offer. From the delicious ricotta cheese in the 'cannoli' and 'pasta alla norma' to brioche rolls filled with ice cream and the famous limoncello, you’ll want to taste everything here!
