“Home for as long as you need to be, and land as far as the eye can see”
Sicily, the largest Mediterranean island, is just off the "toe" of Italy's "boot." Its rich history is reflected in sites like the Valley of the Temples, the well-preserved ruins of 7 monumental, Doric-style Greek temples, and in the Byzantine mosaics at the Cappella Palatina, a former royal chapel in capital city Palermo.
The symbol is known as Trinacria, a Greek word that means 'three pointed;' it recalls the shape of the island, which resembles a triangle. Trinacria was the earliest known name of the island of Sicily.
