Historical holidays and jet set glamour

Sicily invites indulgence – the Italian island luxuriates in sunshine and attracts the flashiest visitors. On holidays in Sicily rub shoulders with the glamourous or brush up on your history. 

For relaxing, you’ll do no better than the chic resort town of Taormina perched on its hill, with glorious coastline and Mount Etna both within sight. For nightlife and food, student city Catania buzzes whilst Palermo is both lovely and lively to walk around, with street food and flamboyant sights. For sightseeing, culture vultures can feast on column carcasses in the valley of the temples at Agrigento, culminating in the incredible Tempio della Concordia. With two destinations to fly to, British Airways has the island covered. Book flights to Sicily and live the life of a jetsetter.

Where to visit in Sicily

Catania
Catania.

Catania

The city of Catania is a contradiction of grit and history. Though it has a UNESCO World Heritage centre you may find yourself keen to explore further out – especially since from here you can see Mount Etna smoking quietly in the distance. You can go honey tasting on its slopes, or climb to its peak, slippery ash underfoot. Stay where jet-setters stay, the beautiful hill town of Taormina. Nearby, ancient Syracuse is full of histories – a medieval Jewish ghetto sits near to a Roman amphitheatre.
