Sicily offers a warm welcome to disabled visitors via its love and reverence for the arts, music, literature and archaeology. 

The island has certainly earned its seven UNESCO Heritage Site status, which has been recognised as such due to its many stunning nature spots and examples of fine architecture throughout.  The sites include the Necropolis of Pantalica containing over 5,000 tombs, Mount Etna, which is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, and the unforgettable volcanic archipelago Aeolian Islands.

In Sicily, visitors are spoiled for choice with respect to the stunning places available to visit and enjoy.  For a crash course in fine wine, visit Taormina; for historic cities there’s Siracusa, Palermo, and Catania; for spectacular Greek temples visit Agrigento, Segesta and Selinunte.

The cuisine in Sicily is a glorious stew of cultural influences, and usually includes ingredients grown and caught within and around the island such as hazelnuts, ricotta, swordfish, pistachios, shellfish and lemons.  There are few culinary joys capable of rivalling the delicious simplicity of the island’s take on Genoese pesto, “pesto alla trapanese”, or the delightfully fishy cous cous.

As well as the island’s beautiful landscape, Sicily is blessed with a long history of residents associated with the arts.  It should therefore be no surprise that due to the many writers, philosophers and painters who have their roots in Sicily there remains a culture of folklore, outdoor festivals, opera and a respect for literature and film.

The climate in Sicily is sunny and dry, which complements the sandy coastline and green scenery, and the warm weather often stretches long into November.

There are opportunities for wheelchair-accessible tours across Sicily, including tours of Taormina and the local fishing villages.
