Are you dreaming of travelling again as from the 1st July 2020?
If like many people, you are missing being able to explore other countries and cultures, Sicily is the obvious choice for your first foray back into holidaying, especially since their Covid-19 numbers are low.
Less than 200 kms away, Sicily is probably the safest travel corridor for Malta.
With summer approaching, you will be able spend time at the uncrowded beaches, discover the untouched rural areas and even explore Mount Etna with family or friends.
If you’re a foodie, fear not. Did you know that Sicily is sometimes referred to as ‘God’s Kitchen’ because of its noted cuisines and wines? The island is replete with tasty delicacies which make your mouth water just by looking at them. You may want to take some Torroncini (nougat) or Pasti di Mandorla (almond cakes) home with you to share with people at home although it is suggested that you try the Granita (ice cream) while still there!
Heritage and history buffs have plenty to choose for as well, with Sicily containing some of Italy’s best examples of Baroque architecture.
