To visit Sicily and discover its true soul, it is necessary to start from the less frequented localities of traditional tourism, from the most remote corners of the island, where the ancient traditions, the smells and the flavours of the past are still kept. In these hidden places, commonly known as “villages”, the heart of true Sicily pulsates, the spirit that still characterizes its essence today. Visiting the Sicilian villages means visiting the most beautiful villages in Italy, for those wishing to take a Sicily tour, these places reveal all the wonders of a sun-kissed land caressed by the sea.
