Sicily (Italian Sicilia; ancient Trinacria), largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, southern Italy, separated from mainland Italy by the Strait of Messina. The island is roughly triangular in shape and with adjacent small islands forms a region of Italy. Area of Sicily region, 25,707 sq km (9,926 sq mi); population (2002) 4,972,124.
Sicily is for the most part a plateau 150 to 600 m (500 to 1,900 ft) above sea level. In the north lie the Nebrodi and Madonie Mountains, the only well-defined ranges, although there are several isolated peaks, such as the volcano Mount Etna (3,323 m/10,902 ft) in the east, and Monte San Giuliano (ancient Eryx; 750 m/2,460 ft) in the northwest. The lower mountain slopes are generally covered with groves of oranges and olives, and most of the plateau is covered with fields of wheat.

Sicily Attractions



Alcantara Gorge
The woods around the gorge are actually quite small, but this scenic site, on the Alcantara River off Route 185 (between Taormina and Mount Etna), offers a pleasant glimpse of Etna's geological influence on the surrounding countryside. The water that flows through this basalt formation is always cool, and bathing is permitted during the summer months.
