 "the clue" to understanding Italy & our Greco-Roman Heritage

The greatest Greek temples and theatres, finest Roman mosaics, World Heritage baroque palaces, hilltop stone villages, unique Arabic-Byzantine story-telling in gold, myths and legends on mountaintops by the blue, blue sea, and absolutely great cooking.

Sicily is also the land of myth and history, monsters and heroes, including Cyclops, Ulysses, Aeneas, Sappho, Empedocles, Theocritus, Archimedes, Cicero, Santa Lucia, Frederick II, Bellini, Garibaldi, Pirandello, Falcone, Al Pacino, and Inspector Montalbano.

More UNESCO World Heritage sites (7) than any region in the world.

As Goethe said,
                                "To have seen Italy without without having seen Sicily
                                  is to not have seen Italy at all,
                                  for Sicily is the clue to everything."
