2. Sicily, Italy
A triangular-shaped island surrounded by several other minor ones, Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Home to Mount Etna—one of the most active volcanoes in the world and the tallest active in Europe—Sicily is an island of restless mountains and the irresistibly seductive seascape. Offering plenty of options for outdoor activities, Sicily is one of the most charming islands in the world. The fresh fragrance of the lemon trees dominating the air, the shimmering golden light of dawn painting the terracotta walls, the vibrant markets, antiquity at the every nook and corner and the alluring drama of the active volcano against a dusky sky, Sicily is a dream destination, and not without reasons.
