Introducing Western Sicily
The west of the island is a different Sicily from the ordered and industrious east. Colonised by Arabs who preferred carefree indulgence to orderly Greek temples, western Sicily has a bit of the Wild West about it – which is all part of the appeal. There is plenty to incite the senses here, ranging from unpretentious fishing towns to one of Sicily’s finest nature reserves, the Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro. Offshore a cluster of islands, Pantelleria and the Egadi archipelago, share some 15,000 years of history between them – the latter was once a land bridge between Italy and North Africa.
