When people come to Sicily, they tend to go along the well-followed tourist road, sticking to the main cities like Palermo or Catania or visit coastal resort towns like Taormina or Cefalù, which are all beautiful and worthwhile. Still, the island offers many more unique experiences.

I always advise people to go and explore smaller towns, which are easier and offer a more authentic type of experience.

Small towns aren’t as bustling and vibrant as the bigger cities, but visiting them will give you a sense of the natural colour and pace of day-to-day Sicilian life which is much more satisfying than merely crossing things off a bucket list.

So when you come to Sicily, visit a quiet little village, it will surprise you.

P.S: The town in the photo above is Floresta high in the Nebrodi Mountains in Messina Province. I took this photo of Etna from there about a month ago. Definitely, a place to visit.
