Sicily and the two archipelagos bordering it, the Aeolian Islands to the north and Malta to the south, encapsulate the history of the Mediterranean: from their coasts, where we find vestiges of the Phoenicians, to the slopes of their mountains, where there are Greek and Roman remains. Our gaze is always facing the sea…

In the footsteps of Olof Gollcher, Palazzo Falson

In the footsteps of Olof Gollcher, Palazzo Falson

Some call it the ‘silent city’. Mdina, a fortified town, takes its name from Arabic. Its shady alley ways still evoke the time of the knights. A visit to Palazzo Falson, splendid and ancient medieval palace, the home of artist and philanthropist Olof Gollcher, offers an unexpected insight into local history and culture. His collections of paintings, carpets and weapons take you on an astonishing journey…

Locanda Don Serafino

Ragusa - Italy

Hotel and restaurant in town. In the maze of little streets and baroque churches of Ragusa Ibla, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is where you find Locanda Don Serafino, one of the finest restaurants in Sicily. Near the ramparts of the lower section of the city, in the palace's former barn, the restaurant sits under high vaulted ceilings of exposed stone. Two-Michelin-star chef Vincenzo Candiano sources his ingredients exclusively from the island, yet draws his inspiration from well beyond the Mediterranean to elevate Sicilian cuisine with his own style. Just a few streets away, the rooms of unrivalled charm, and partially carved into the rock, are located in a building from the 19th century. ... Learn moreless

La Chiesa del Purgatorio, Ragusa Ibla

La Chiesa del Purgatorio, Ragusa Ibla

You must visit la Chiesa del Purgatorio to understand the history of Ragusa Ibla. This little church is one of the only buildings to have survived the terrible earthquake which took the town off the map in 1693. The town is today dominated by the splendid San Giorgio cathedral from the top of the land hills. The old town and its network of medieval alleyways lead visitors towards the heart of Sicily…

The Remains of Syracuse

The Remains of Syracuse

More than the place itself, the name of Syracuse is all that is needed to transport travelers to another time. In its heyday, the city founded by the Corinthians was even richer than Athens. Today, the Greek remains rise above fields of citrus fruits and the columns of ancient temples still stand against the baroque style of the cathedral. To meander around Syracuse is to turn back in time and visit the past civilizations…

Capofaro Locanda & Malvasia

Malfa (ME) - Salina - Aeolian Island - Italy

Hotel and restaurant on the seafront. Salina is the greenest of the seven Aeolian Islands that emerge from the deep blue Tyrrhenian Sea. Capofaro’s small whitewashed buildings and fresh water swimming pool stand regally amid the vineyard of the Tasca d’Almerita family, at the foot of one of two extinct volcanoes. Simply adorned, each room opens onto a terrace facing the sea where the fascinating silhouettes of neighbouring Stromboli and Panarea take shape. The chef leads guests on a sun-filled gastronomic journey, infused with the salty and sweet flavours of the produce grown in the property's rich volcanic soil. Following the grand monsù tradition befitting this Sicilian land of aristocracy, he proposes pairings with the Malvasia wine produced in the family vineyard. ... Learn moreless

A unique wine, Malvasia, Salina

A unique wine, Malvasia, Salina

The island of Salina is the greenest of the Aeolian Islands and it used to be known as the garden of the archipelago famous for its wild capers and liquor-like wine, Malvasia. The sweet, amber coloured wine, made from malvasia grapes and red grapes from Corinth, is appreciated particularly as an aperitif, with cheese or desert. It can be tasted in the cellars of the vineyards of Malfa.

In the footsteps of Ingrid, Stromboli

In the footsteps of Ingrid, Stromboli

Masterpiece of neo-realist Italian cinema, the film ‘Stromboli’ allowed the entire world to discover the eponymous island. Volcanic, arid and majestic, Stromboli was also the site of the forbidden love between the sublime actress and Roberto Rossellini, the film’s director. Climb the slopes of the volcano to lose yourself in the alleyways of Ginostra, a must-see for film lovers…
