Valley of the Temples

Explore Western Sicily
Perfect for: Foodies, Families, Active & History

Mazara del Vallo

Historic yet dynamic; elegant and refined, yet quirky and cool. Western Sicily may be Europe’s next hotspot destination. Less explored than the well travelled towns, beaches, coves and volcanic slopes of Eastern Sicily, the west has distinctive art, architecture, music, religion, food and even family dynamics and pace of life. Everything here bears the marks of disparate occupations over the past three thousand years; discover the ancient site of Erice that overlooks Trapani, the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and the Acropolis remains in Selinunte. You’ll find some of the most beautiful churches in Europe in Palermo alongside fabulous festivals. Laid-back Marsala is known for its wine and Trapania boasts excellent restaurants. Mazara del Vallo was once the centre of the Islam world in Italy, now, this pretty seaside town is the perfect base to explore the Southern end of the Western coast.

Etna and Nebrodi by E-Bike
Perfect for: Active, Foodies, Nature, Adventure

Mount Etna

Sicily is probably best known for being home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes; Mount Etna. The views to the mountain from the surrounding area, or from the mountain down towards the open lands to the West and the Coast to the East, are spectacular, and the volcano has created a rich, dark, fertile soil, basking in the sun, creating the perfect region for viniculture. Activities include off-roading on fresh lava flow, skiing, gorge walking, e-biking, kayaking and hiking. Stay in beautiful boutique boltholes in nearby Catania or Taormina and continue your foodie exploration in Noto, Ragusa and Modica.
