SICILY: WHY VISIT NOW

"Boasting some of Italy’s best beaches and one of the most diverse regional cuisines, Sicily has long drawn visitors to its pristine coastline and historic cities blending traces of Greek, Roman and Arab culture. But recent years have not been favorable for Italy’s largest island — following the pandemic, the effects of climate change have become as visible as ever in Sicily, which has experienced increased risks of wildfires, water shortages and record temperatures. In 2023, a fire in Catania’s airport, the island’s largest, provoked a huge drop in tourism flows. Sicily is recovering fast and is expected to be back with a large offering of cultural events in 2024 — take as much time as possible to explore the rich heritage of this unique island.” — Angelo Zinna
