Let's tuck in
Have you gone on a diet? Well, forget it! One of the things to do in Sicily is trying absolutely every kind of food the island and its warm people can offer you.
Sweet, salty, spicy, there's a flavour for all tastes.
Food in Sicily has a really important social value and Sicilian people (mothers, above all!) are really proud of their cookery.
Thus, never reject a coffee or a lunch and ask for seconds: you'll make them really happy.
Before leaving, don't forget to have an arancino (but remember to call it arancina in Palermo), some panelle, a dish of caponata and some pasta al forno.
Loosen your belt and...
enjoy your meal! 2.
Visit the Madonie mountains
Of course, if you are going to Sicily you want to spend some time by the sea.
But just know you can't miss a trip to Madonie mountains to enjoy a wonderful view on the whole island, including Mount Etna.

Have a walk among the paths or ride your mountain bike and choose one of the tracks.
In both cases, the lush nature and the fresh air of Madonie mountains will give you the right energy for the rest of your stay in Sicily.
