Amazing Vacancies in Sicily. Places you must see- Hanna Johnson

Hello Guys, I know I have been bad and not writing much, between a busy job and an infant, there is barely enough time to breathe!
I got this article with the lovely photos from a contributor to Dianahsplace , and I had mentioned in a previous post that I intend to do more on travel and travel destination, so this is our first for the year, thanks to Hanna Johnson. Sicily just became one of my hotspots! Such rich historical and cultural sights!
Sorry I am only just posting this Hanna, it got lost in my numerous mails.
Sorry to other contributors, We only do travel hotspots henceforth unless the gist is strictly mine. Lol
This is an unedited, strictly posted as it was sent in. Enjoy!

The stunning Italian island of Sicily is fast becoming one of the most popular ports-of-call in the whole of the Mediterranean. This beautiful holiday destination is home to endless unforgettable attractions that are sure to leave you spoilt for choice during your visit. If you are currently planning your trip, you will be able to book a fabulous Sicily beach holiday through one of the many online booking platforms. With this in mind, here is my guide to some of the top sites to see and explore in Sicily.
Agrigento
This splendid UNESCO World Heritage site is home to some of the island’s most remarkable ancient ruins. The celebrated “Valley of the Temples” attracts vast numbers of visitors each year as a result of its 8 breathtaking Grecian temples including those of Heracules and Hera and Zeus that tower above the surrounding almond groves.
Mount Etna
This world-renowned active volcano is the highest in Europe and provides phenomenal panoramas from its extraordinary summit. Visitors have the opportunity to hike up the volcano or take a scenic and slightly less energetic cable car ride to the top in order to admire the views and explore the explosive craters.
Taormina

This heavenly destination has been a popular tourist destination for hundreds of years thanks to the town’s idyllic location, medieval architecture, meandering walkways and charming Italian ambience. The views from Taormina’s stunning ancient Grecian theatre are simply magnificent and are only equalled by the town’s outstanding Sicilian cuisine.
Monreale

The hill-top town of Monreale is home to. Built in the 12th century, this lavish construction houses some of the most beautiful and ornate mosaics in the whole of Europe. The mosaics accurately depict biblical scenes making this not only a striking architectural wonder, but also a location of religious significance.


The Aeolian Islands

Sicily’s Aeolian Islands boast countless extraordinary sites and opportunities for adventure such as bathing in Vulcano’s yellow baths, discovering Lipari’s white sandy beaches, marvelling at Stromboli’s striking volcano and admiring Panarea’s luxurious architecture. The islands can be most easily reached from the port of Milazzo.


There is so much to see and do on the island of Sicily that you and your friends and family will have no problem planning a fun-packed itinerary to keep you busy, whether you wish to relax on the island’s pristine beaches, discover ancient ruins or engage in exhilarating sports activities, during your Sicilian vacation.
