Sicily, just off the toe of Italy's boot, is an exotic life experience within Europe. Sicily is in Europe, and it is not. As a part of Italy, Sicily enjoys all the living standards of a typical Southern European country. Still, Sicily is a place where kids play football on the streets, and people go to the beach when they get off work in the afternoon. Sicilian people enjoy spending time outdoors. You will be surprised by the hustle and bustle of the major cities day and night. And it's a safe place to stay for anyone including single female.
There are the Unesco World Heritage Sites in Sicily. It is a unique cultural combination of the civilizations that settled across the island over the centuries. Greeks, Arabs, Spaniards, and French left a mark on Sicilian architecture, language, food, and overall lifestyle.
In some Sicilian cities with a robust Arabic heritage, you will want to discover that the traditional dish is the couscous. You will wonder

if you are in Sicily or the Caribbean because of its vast unspoiled beaches in some other areas.

Every vista is like a painting, and the Mediterranean seems to be another World, where every grain
