Sicily with it's 5 millions inhabitants is like a country of its own. The nature is everything from mighty Mount Etna to green meadows, hilltops and beaches. The cites are everything from hilltop villages to well known Palermo and beautiful Siracusa. The food is a mix of Italy, North Africa, ++++. The people are extremely friendly.
