Notes on some famous places in Sicily

Taormina

Taormina is the most popular place in Sicily among tourists. Situated at 670 feet on the sea level on a mountain in front of the Mt. Etna volcano (you can't miss the wonderful view from here) the town was founded in 358 B.C., from Grecians coming from Naxos.

Scopello

Modica

At 296 meters above sea level, Modica with it's typical baroque and XVII century charm is set lovely along the stone walls of a huge canyon carved out by two rivers in the form of a great Y.

Cefalù

Cefalù is situated on the north coast of Sicily, near Palermo and it is known for its Norman cathedral, its promontory and the beautiful sandy beaches. For his sure and animated equipped beaches, services and rich cultural routes of myth, history and nature, Cefalù is a privileged and exclusive tourist goal. It also offers local (pubs, restaurants, pizzas...) and discotheques to enjoy your evening and night staying here.

Noto

Catania

From the dark lava reef, a witness of Mt. Etna's ancient eruptions, you can admire the enchanting sea views. If you prefer the beach, the long stretch of sand is the best place for a great tan.

Agrigento

Founded as a Greek colony in the 6th century BC, Agrigento became one of the leading cities of the Mediterranean world. Its supremacy and pride are demonstrated by the remains of the magnificent Doric temples that dominate the ancient town, much of which remains intact under latter-day fields and orchards. Selected excavated areas throw light on the later Hellenic and Roman town and on the burial practices of its palaeochristian inhabitants.

Palermo

In the middle of the Mediterranean sea, the cradle of ancient civilizations, Palermo has always been a crossroads of cultures between East and West.

Sant'Angelo Muxaro

Sant'Angelo M. is situated on a dominant hill in the valley of the River Platani. The landscape is very varied and interesting. San'Angelo M. is one of the most important pre-historic Sicilian village. The archeological period goes from the bronze age to the iron age.
