A jewel of an island packed with a rugged coastline, amazing beaches and a warmer climate than the mainland on the same latitude as the North African coast. This amazing island has taken on much of the culture which has passed through as it’s a smorgasbord of Greek temples, Norman churches and Baroque palazzos plus the smoking craters of Mount Etna and some amazing beaches.

Donna Coraly Resort Sicily Italy (More Information & Booking)
Much like the brain-zappingly strong espresso Sicilians drip over sugar, a potent hit of Italian vitality is distilled into Donna Coraly Resort. The central tenets of la dolce vita (food, wine, beauty) are taken seriously here: bouts of sun-kissed relaxation by the 13th-century family fort – or the pool in the flower-filled park – are interspersed with languid lunches made with farm-gathered fare. The surrounding orange groves and farmland are fertile territory for romantic wanderings and, a short drive away, Syracuse and Ortigia showcase ancient Greek and Roman splendour.
