Park
“Urlauber im Südosten Siziliens sollten unbedingt das Vendicari-Naturreservat besuchen. Es gibt viele Gründe für diese Aussage, aber keiner ist überzeugender als die Tatsache, dass seine schönen Strände zu den am wenigsten besuchten Strände Siziliens zählen... zumindest von Menschen. Am südlichsten Punkt von Siziliens Ostküste gelegen befindet sich Vendicari, eine Mischung aus Lagunen (Pantano), Sandünen, felsigen Küstenzügen und Sandstränden. Der Naturpark wurde 1984 gegründet und beherbergt eine Vielfalt an Flora und Fauna. Der hohe Salzgehalt des Bodens stellt einen idealen Lebensraum für die mediterrane Buschvegetation dar. Es gedeihen Kräuter wie Thymian und Rosmarin und andere stacheli”

Kirche
“The Cathedral of Palermo was founded by Gualtiero Offamilio, archbishop of the town from 1169 to 1190. It was a mosque in Islamic times and converted into a cathedral church by Roberto the Guiscardo after the conquest of Palermo. Its exclusive elements are the inlays and the architectural and sculptural plastic that reflects the penetration of Romanic art and the first Gothic decorative taste in Sicily, expanding the spectrum of the Arab-Norman syncretism with new elements in an original and multiple composition and exhibition of the Mediterranean arts. The building underwent a late-eighteenth-century renovation carried out on a project by Ferdinando Fuga. This period dates back to the Norman-Swabian royal and imperial sarcophagi in the first two chapels of the right aisle, where the remains of Roger II and his daughter Constance, of Emperor Henry VI, of Frederick II and his wife Costanza D’Aragona are preserved.”

“Hier kann man wunderbar in den Bergen wandern oder auch einen Pfad oberhalb des Meeres nehmen und in kleinen Buchten ins Meer springen! Allerdings ist dies längst kein Geheimtipp mehr und besonders am Wochenende kann es ziemlich voll auf den Parkplätzen sein...im Park verteilen sich die Besucher...”

“The Royal Palace of Palermo (11th-12th centuries) is the main monument to represent the wealth and political and cultural power of the Norman kingdom, a model of Arab-Norman architecture. An ancient Islamic Castrum erected on pre-existing Punic origins, from 1072 it became the residence of the Norman sovereigns. Its Torre Pisana (second quarter of the 12th century) is a unique example of a fortified tower, similar to those of the Norman donjon, whose plan is similar to ifriqeni Islamic models. La Joharia (mid-12th century) includes Sala dei Venti and Sala di Ruggero. The Sala dei Venti, or of the four columns, derives its architecture from the durqa'a, the inner courtyard of the Islamic ifriqeni and Fatimid palaces. It is preserved intact and is in fact one of the best preserved examples of this architectural typology in the medieval Mediterranean. Sala di Ruggero is characterized by impressive mosaics that cover the walls and the cross vault with profane, hunting and paradisiac scenes. The mosaics of Stanza di Ruggero, together with the fragments preserved in the Pisan Tower and the mosaic panel of Sala della Fontana in Palazzo della Zisa, are rare examples of profane decorations, distinguished by the significant presence of figurative elements derived from Islamic and Sassanid culture.. A widespread genre in the Byzantine courtly world of which today there are no traces except in historical sources.”

“It’s the nature getaway not to be missed near Syracuse! The nature reserve Orientata Cavagrande del Cassibile is about an hour’s drive from the city. The panorama is magnificent, with a beautiful view of the canyon. It is also possible to see Etna in the distance! It is an ideal place for walking, picnic and swimming.”

“This site is at only 20 min. from Trapani and it is included in all the itineraries of Sicily. Here lived the Elymians, one of oldest tribes of Sicily. The temple was not completed but it still looks great especially at night, when you can see it lit up. At the top of hill, you will find a beautiful theatre that hosts representation at summer.”
