Sicily:
the queen of the Mediterranean

Undoubtedly a region of unique beauty, the largest island in the Mediterranean boasts incredible wonders on both land and sea. It is the southernmost region of Italy and a treasure chest full of precious, ancient flavors.

Kissed by the sun, its fertile lands and pristine seas yield the ingredients that account for the island’s delicious cuisine and flavorful wines. Its climate accounts for the fact that it’s one of the most important producers of citrus fruit.

Like its landscape, Sicilian cuisine reflects a mix of colorful and intense flavors, with Arab, Greek, Spanish, and French influences.
