Sicily is not just the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. And this is not just territorial unit in Italy. Sicily – is a country in the country. Not a province, not a region, but the whole state with its own language, cuisine, traditions, with its unique rhythm and even currency. After all, other than the euro in Sicily there is one monetary unit. This is smile. The friendliness and hospitality are valued no less than the sound of coins. Bag of mussels at the fish market, a cup of espresso “at bar’s cost”, a pleasant trinket in a tiny souvenir shop: you can count on them for free. These gifts are made not so much to “fix” the client, but simply out of personal sympathy.
Sicily – is a universe in miniature, a melting pot in which Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome “seething” with the Arabs, Normans and Byzantines. As a result came out a breath-taking “soup” of the masterpieces of world architecture, sea, sun, olive groves, lemon flavor, rosemary and numerous legends in which it is impossible to believe, but that are true. The only thing is that the word “soup” in Sicily is almost out of the use. So let it be, for example, “minestrone”.
Travel across Sicilian cities is like a big book, where each page tells you about the era in which lived one or another nation. The island of Sicily is not accidently one of the most popular holiday destinations in Italy.
