Sicily from Above

This April I invite you to visit Sicily. I took a trip there in 2011 and stayed mostly in Catania, but on one occasion I visited Taormina, a town on the mountain.

There is a lot of ancient history in Sicily. Although “related” to Italy by way of geographical proximity, Sicily has some unique aspects in its culture, mostly in the area of cuisine. The famous Marsala wine comes from the town that bears that name; Martorana Fruit is a delicacy only found on this island.

Approaching Sicily from the air you will see mountains and rivers and finally Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe which rises to the hight of 10,922 feet. Etna welcomed us with a little puff of a cloud as if to say that it was safe to land.
