Sciacca is a beautiful historic city on the southwest of the island.
There are many historic buildings in the city, one of the districts, built in an Arabic style, is very attractive. Sciacca has many points of interest: seaside, thermal bath, relics, churches, and a historic carnival. Sciacca is known from the ceramics and vases made there, and the many shops, coffee shops, and restaurants found in the city. Ceramics workshops, coral shaping shops and thermal baths await visitors of Sciacca. The fascinating town – which Fellini was also a fan of – has left behind a lot of cultural heritage during its long history, and beyond its idyllic beaches, artisan districts, and protected buildings, it’s also appealing because it hasn’t yet been discovered by tourists. In the early morning the harbor has a special atmosphere, and a couple of hours later it’s worth tasting the fresh catch of the day in a local restaurant. Agrigento and the famous Valley of Temples can be found 60 km away, Selinunte 30 km away, Eraclea Minoa 25 km away, Segesta 70 km away, and Palermo 100 km away.
From Sciacca you can get to Corleone, the city that the film Godfather made famous, easily with a rented car. Corleone is a mountain town with a population of over 11000, about an hour’s drive away from Palermo. You can climb up the hill on a beautiful, windy serpentine road. This landscape is similar to the Tuscan scenery, although a little wilder. Small lakes, forests, clearings surround you on your way. Notorious or famous, but it’s definitely exciting to visit the inside of the island, going into the mountains, to get the real Sicilian atmosphere. Adventures like this and many others await you in undiscovered Sicily! The fantastic island of Sicily captivates travelers. It is said that you don’t know anything about Italy if you haven’t been to Sicily – this land is exotic and wild, and it has many natural and cultural attractions.
One oe the most beautiful cities in Sicily are Taormina and Cefalú, Siracusa and the beautiful Lipari Islands are beautiful attractions in spring and in autumn – at these times you don’t have to worry about the heat or the huge number of tourists.
