1. Mount Etna

Mount Etna

Rising close to an incredible 2000 metres above sea level, Mount Etna is one of the world’s best-known volcanoes.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside benefitting from mineral-rich soil stemming from volcanic activity, this part of the island presents some of the most striking views in all of Italy.

2. Noto

Noto Cathedral

To Sicily’s southeast, Noto is best known for its incredible architecture. UNESCO-listed and one of the city’s most impressive buildings, the 18th century Noto Cathedral is a star attraction.

Construction originally completed in the late 18th century, the cathedral has undergone a series of changes down the years, still retaining its imposing façade.

3. Savoca

4. Syracuse

Syracuse

Spread along the Ionian Coast, Syracuse is famous for its ancient ruins.

A sightseeing must-visit, key landmarks awaiting discovery include an amazing archaeological area (home to an ancient Greek Theatre) and Arethusa Fountain.

A natural fountain named after a Greek mythological figure, the Spring is an undoubted highlight in the historical centre of Syracuse.
