An island almost as close to Africa as to Europe. It's historic. Passionate. It's Sicily. The homeland of some of Europe's friendliest hosts. Where art and architecture hail from countless centuries. Where Mount Etna simmers on the horizon and delicious seafood forever raises the bar. Is your family ready to surrender to an island's allure? Let it be Sicily.
- Bike with your family above the Mediterranean Sea with breathtaking views of Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano
- Indulge in the island's homegrown bounty, from prosciutto and ricotta to wine and olive oil
- Climb the tiled stairs of Caltagirone, a town dating back to the Bronze Age, and shop for painted ceramics made by locals
- Admire incredible Sicilian baroque architecture at the World Heritage sites of Scicli, Modica and Ragusa
