Best Things to Do in Sicily
Sicily is big, so the options on what to do are nearly endless. Some of the island's top amusements are its beaches, of course, and a few of the most popular line the north and northwest coasts. Then there are the curious ruins -- the Valley of the Temples and the Segesta Temple among others. Experiencing the magnificence of Mount Etna, an active volcano, is another top activity. Eating -- everything from chicken marsala to pasta con le sarde -- is another worthy venture. Nightlife ranges from beachside clubs to live performances at Italy's largest opera house, Teatro Massimo.
