Discover our latest collection shot in beautiful Sicily

Or ‘benvenuti in sicilia’ should we say! Our minds are still romanticising the rolling hills of Sicily, exploring the gorgeous ancient town and daydreaming about the copious amounts of pasta enjoyed. Aka, the perfect setting for our new campaign.

And although we weren’t able to go full tourist-mode and discover the ins and outs of all that Sicily has to offer, we made sure to talk to the locals and gather all the bucket list must-do’s… just in case you find yourself daydreaming about the perfect Euro summer and happening to “accidently” book a month holiday to Italy. 

So here you go… our top 4 things to do in Sicily.

1. Explore the historical city of Palermo

If there’s anything (other than fashion) that we love, it’s exploring a rich history… and eating delicious food!

Palermo, the capital of Sicily and the fifth biggest city in Italy, is over 2,700 years old! Boasting over 1000 churches, Palmero is famous for its history and street food. There are so many things to do and see in Palermo, including watching a show at the third largest opera theatre in Europe and trying street food such as arancine, panelle and cannoli and the four oldest street markets in Italy.

2. Visit the amphitheatre in Taormina

Taormina is absolutely stunning and one of the must-visit places in Sicily! Take the bus up from the train station and spend some time visiting the little independent boutique stores, as well as the world-famous ancient Greek amphitheater. Apparently… if you’re lucky and you time your visit right, you can catch  a show there.

3. Marvel at the Scala dei Turchi

Just outside of Agrigento, this beautiful ‘Turkish staircase’ made of marl, a white limestone rock, lies between two beaches. At the moment you cannot climb on the steps, as Sicily is trying its best to preserve this natural phenomenon, but it’s still one of the best places to visit in Sicily and makes for some epic photography - hello instagram snap!

And for a wild card, if you’re feeling like getting your hiking boots out, we were told that this is one of the best things to do in Sicily…

4. Hike Mount Etna

The highest volcano in Europe and one of the most active in the world. Mount Etna National Park spans over 570 square kilometres and 20 towns, meaning you’ll see a variety of barren areas of lava, volcanic craters, woods and vineyards on your travels there. To reach the summit you have to be on a guided tour (and you can’t always reach the summit if Etna’s feeling particularly active that day), but the views when you reach the top are incredible.
