Sicily (Italian and Sicilian: Sicilia) is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea.
Throughout much of its history, Sicily has been considered a crucial strategic location due in large part to its importance for Mediterranean trade routes.
Sicily was a Greek colony, a Roman province, an Arab emirate and a Norman kingdom. The Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Swabians, Angevins, Aragonese and Jews made Sicily their own.
Sicily's greatest natural attraction is also its highest mountain. To the ancient Greeks, Mount Etna was the realm of Vulcan, god of fire, and the home of the one-eyed monster known as the Cyclops. At approximately 3350 meters, it is Europe's highest active volcano.
Considered Sicily's "Baroque City," Noto is in the province of Syracuse, Noto is a masterpiece of Sicilian Baroque.
Taormina it has long been Sicily's most famous resort town.

So a littletrip to Sicily was a travel to the root of european culture.
I met a lot of sicilian wedding photographers and i miss a wedding in Sicily.
I always remeber my last wedding in Taormina.
