When we look at the sky caressing the sea, blending various shades of blue, a shiver caresses our back and our thoughts soar between magic and wonder. We are talking about the Sicilian sky meeting the Ionian Sea, of course. This spectacle can be admired from the highest active volcano of the Eurasian plate, Mount Etna, or from the magnificent glimpse that the ruins of the Roman theatre in Taormina open up towards the horizon, and from Catania, vivid heritage of humanity for its Baroque expression.
Among forests and smoky craters, Mount Etna’s elegance is represented by the black and white that dominates the landscape almost year-round, with its shimmering lava and glistening snow. On Mount Tauro, overhanging the sea, a small and brilliant jewel fascinates everyone so much that Guy de Maupassant once said “If anyone were to spend a single day in Sicily and should ask: What must I see? I would answer without hesitation: Taormina”. Colour and warmth: these are the key words for those who discover the beauty of Catania, with its culture, great food, nightlife and hospitality.
