Giuseppe Verdi said “you may have the universe, if I may have Italy”, we agree, take the universe, take it all, just give me Italia.
The love affair we have with Italy is unwavering, the moment you set foot out off the plane and you smell the pines, and the Mediterranean, you feel the sun against your skin and you hear the racket you know you have arrived in heaven!
So you can imagine the sheer delight we experienced in Sicily, it is everything Italy, but better. Goethe said “to have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything.”
He could not have put it better…Sicily is spell binding, intoxicating, magical. Sicily’s sights, sounds, smells and taste resonate so deeply she is the epitome of everything overdressed.
