From ancient Greek temples and Baroque churches to idyllic beaches and mountainous rural countryside, Sicily is a destination that begs to be discovered. Whether it’s a day spent at sea or chasing the dust that swirls around the statues and modern day verandas – getting lost in Sicily is all but too inviting.
You don’t have to go far to explore the beautiful architecture that tells the story of this ancient city. Sicilian Baroque is the distinctive form of Baroque architecture that was first introduced on the island in the 17th and 18th centuries. The style is recognizable not only by its typical Baroque curves and flourishes, but also by its grinning masks and putti, creating a particular flamboyance that has given Sicily a unique architectural identity.
One of the best ways to explore Sicily is by bicycle or Vespa, which just happen to be the preferred modes of transportation to navigate the congested city streets and steeps hills of the countryside. It’s not a matter of practicability as it is of practice – riding with two tires demands adventure.
Pasta, wine and the many gifts from the sea are expected in Sicily, but what’s intrinsically unexpected is what makes the city artistic and inviting. Creativity exists at every turn; in the detail of old building terraces and on the streets where vibrant colors stand out among a background of historic piazzas, churches and charming village homes.
Beauty is pronounced in the most remote areas of Sicily where the mountains and grassy hilltops chase the horizon and forbidden crevices tempt adventurer seekers. Admired up close and from afar, the landscapes conjure a sense of freedom and appreciation for a more simple way of life.
