Tucked away on the north-eastern coast of Sicily, this home is just a drive away from a pretty, sandy beach with brilliant sand and sapphire-coloured water. If you walk along the shore, you’ll find a wide range of restaurants where you can try some local dishes such as arancini, cannoli or caponata. There are also many different bars to choose from, serving cocktails, beer and local red wine.

For a lovely day trip, head to Taormina, a bustling hilltop town with a gorgeous pebbled beach called Mazzarò. Slightly offshore, there is a breathtaking nature reserve called Isola Bella, which is filled with Mediterranean shrubs and lots of wildlife. To reach it, you walk across the small path that connects the island to the main beach. Diving and snorkelling are popular activities in the area, and you can also take a boat to the incredible Grotta Azzurra sea cave. Tourists often visit the city for its ancient Greco theatre, where you can still watch shows today. There are also several bars and restaurants dotted around, serving delicious food and drink with sea views.

Mount Etna is an incredible active volcano listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thanks to the fertile volcanic soils, there are miles of orchards and vineyards on the mountain’s lower slopes. There are many different guided tours and hikes up the mountain and skiing in the winter. As one of Italy’s most significant (and beautiful) landmarks, the volcano has a rich history. Its first recorded eruption was in 1,500 BC, and the Romans later believed that the Cyclops, a one-eyed mythical creature, resided there.

Sicily has a diverse landscape that’s unlike any other. One minute you could be hiking up a volcano, the next relaxing on a sandy beach. There are many different caves and nature reserves to explore, as well as stunning countryside with lots of wildlife. With delicious wine, unique cuisine and extensive history, this region is the perfect place to visit.
