Travel inspiration: fascinating facts about Sicily

  1. Sicily’s Capital is Palermo which was named the European Capital of Street Food- the tastiest and most varied food!
  2. The locals speak many languages besides Italian and Sicilian. This includes French, German, Arabic, and Romanian. This is because the island has three different seas: Tyrrhenian Sea, Mediterranean Sea, and the Ionian Sea which make the island a point of interest for many civilisations in both Europe and other neighboring regions
  3. One the World’s Best Mathematicians, Archimedes was born and raised in Sicily
  4. Rumors say Sicilians eat ice cream for breakfast! Granita is a creamy sorbet-style eaten as a morning delight. It comes with other flavours like chocolate, lemon, strawberry, pistachio and almond- perfect for that warm summer weather!
  5. Mount Etna is not only the tallest volcano in Europe but it’s also one of the most active volcanoes in the world!
