Exploring Sicily

Exploring Sicily
Sicily (map) is the largest island in the Mediterranean, and although once a country in it’s own right, has been a part of Italy since the unification of the country in 1860.  It is the largest region of Italy, with a population of over 5 million.  The island relies primarily on lemon and orange orchards for its economic base, but the lure of the sea, the natural beauty of the island, and a longing for a taste of rural life is starting to push tourism into the economic mix.
