Sicily has been fought over by everyone from the Greek to the Norman to the Spaniards and this is reflected in its fascinating art, architecture and food which are a melting pot of Arab, African and European influences.

One of the most magical cities in the world, Palermo, is finally re-emerging as one of Europe’s great capitals. The ‘old town’ is noisy, chaotic and life-enhancing, bursting with crumbling palazzos, churches and piazzas that are a joy to explore. Palermo perfectly encapsulates the spirit of Sicily: unpretentious, gritty and a natural beauty.

Elsewhere, the volcanic Aeolian Islands located just off the northern coast boast tiny isolated beaches accessible only by boat and active volcanoes that light up the night sky with showers of diamond-like embers comparable to the jewels that drip off the glamorous Milanese fashion crowd and Sicilian aristocrats who flock there in summer. Each island has a fiercely unique character, from the laidback charm of Salina to the fashionable jet set playground of Panarea.

Taormina is the most beautiful hill town in Sicily, perched high above the sea. If you doubt the Greek genius for siting a building in the landscape, go and enjoy the view from the Greek Theatre towards Etna. Despite the number of tourists, Taormina still possesses great charm.

When we help our clients explore Sicily, our aim is to ensure access to the most private and exclusive side of this complex and fascinating island. We try to achieve a mix between the island’s extraordinarily eclectic culture, natural beauty, sea, food and wine and its wonderfully elegant and grand private houses, gardens, palaces and treasures.
