Beautiful places to visitNavigation
In the past, I‘ve been writing a lot about many travel places you should visit. I traveled around the globe, and I’ve seen a lot of great countries. But I think I finally find the one that will keep a very special place in my heart. Sunny Island in Sicily is a collision of cultures for thousands of years, which marked the history and fate of the Sicilians, landscapes, and culture and not just once but many times, and without that Sicily would not be what it is today. A varied, colorful and unique, open and traditional, Sicily is totally different from others. And why Sicily is the right destination for your holidays, check here.
It is located in the heart of the Mediterranean and the eponymous sea. It was a logical place for the historic conflicts and the fight over territories because it was thought that Sicily has an ideal position for all maritime activities that a king may require. Sicily is the most southern Italian island, the fourth largest island in Europe and the largest Mediterranean island.
Because of its position, that has led to numerous historical conflicts, the beauty of Sicily caused collisions of cultures and civilizations, each leaving a part of themselves and finally made this island so attractive and popular destination. The spirit of Sicily was formed through the impact of ancient Greece, ancient Rome, and then later with the influence of the Western culture and the Catholic religion with totally different Norman and Arab cultures. Since for many years Sicily was a Greek colony, there has been a strong influence of Greek mythology and Greek architecture. This set of influences resulted in the fact that the Sicilians, although the Italians, are the type of people for themselves, and they love to stand out, and most importantly they like to welcome tourists around the world, and because of their warmth they are making your journey to Sicily unforgettable.
Because of the already mentioned position, it is logical to go to Sicily in summer. There you will find one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. They are sandy and well organized. My recommendations are beaches such as Lido di Mortelle, Giardini Naxos, and San Vito La Kapo. Beside traditional seaside activities, much more you can visit on this island. The most important cities in Sicily are Palermo as the capital, Catania, and Syracuse, which represents the center of cultural life. While visiting Palermo, you can go and see Monreale, a nearby town in which you may find Monreale Cathedral with mosaics dating from the 12th century that takes the breath away. Palermo is the capital of Sicily, and it was built in the 8th century BC, and there are approximately 1.2 million people. This city has some attractions. As the most important port, Palermo became the first cosmopolitan city, and because of that, most diverse nations lived there ever since it’s beginning. A true example of the diversity of the city is the Cathedral of Palermo, which changed its purpose three times. From the pagan Norman temple became Arab mosque, to finally get the purpose of the Christian church in the eleventh century.
