Thursday, 21 October 2021 17:20

Sicily ranked sixth among the most beautiful islands in the world, in the annual ranking of the World's Best Award by Travel + Leisure, finishing behind the top two islands in Greece, Milos and Folegandros, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Lesser Antilles, Madeira in Portugal and the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. This is a particularly significant result because to draw up the ranking readers are asked to rate their travel experience, taking into account a series of factors from hospitality, to the sea, food, culture and places to visit.

In the top ten for the second consecutive year

Alberto Sarmonà, Regional Councillor for Cultural Heritage and Sicilian Identity, commented on the ranking: "This is an important recognition, above all for the fact that our island was included in the prestigious top-ten for the second consecutive year, climbing three positions compared to 2020 when it finished in ninth place. At last the world is realising how special Sicily is for its nature, landscapes and cultural beauties. This is what we have to offer visitors and the regional government is working tirelessly, focusing on our unique beauty to build our future.”  

But what is it about Sicily that won over the readers of Travel + Leisure? What gives the region the edge is above all its immense cultural heritage. “We have ancient Greek and Roman sites and museums, wonderful friendly people, and the best food you will ever taste” and  "The coastal cities are as beautiful as any you can imagine," are just two of the comments that were made by Travel + Leisure readers.

Sicily is indeed a true treasure trove of stunning attractions from the Gulf of Patti to Mondello Beach, from the Valley of the Temples to the Scala dei Turchi, from Modica to Taormina, from the Gulf of Aci Trezza to Mount Etna, and we could go on…..
