The island has always been a microcosm, a composite world in which people of different race, religion and language have clashed and met, leaving a stratification of extremely significant traces: from prehistory until today, it can be said that this hasn’t changed. Discovering Sicily is a bit like diving into history: a blend of exceptional landscapes, picturesque villages and architectural treasures, the "island of three peaks" (the Trinakria of the ancient Greeks) will seduce you both for the atmospheres of rural landscape with secular rhythms and the fades of eternal old stones. All in Sicily will just steal your heart, and anyone could quickly realise why Sicilian people are so proud of their island.
