If there is one favorite summer destination in Italy, it can be Sicily. Philippe Dardour describes the island to be the best destination if you want to experience a true Italian summer. It’s an escape from the modern vibe of Rome and is the epitome of what old Italy can look like. A walk around Palermo’s Viale della Libertà Avenue reveals several art-nouveau architectural buildings and old villas. For examples of exquisite Byzantine and Norman era artwork, you can visit the old abbeys, cathedral and mosaics in Monreal.

You can further indulge your historical cravings with the views of Mt. Etna from the ruins of an old Greek theatre at Taormina. And if you fancy a dip in the warm Mediterranean sea, just go downhill the old medieval town, and you’ll find one of the most beautiful and luxurious beach coves in the island. A trip from Palermo to Taormina can be arranged locally or by escorted tours from Euroquest Travel Group.
