Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean, and is as captivating as it is diverse. For centuries, it has been at the crossroads of civilisations and each has left an indelible imprint on this Italian region.
The area around the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort offers a fascinating glimpse into Sicilian life and culture.
A short drive away is the picturesque seaside town of Sciacca with medieval alleys and baroque churches, seafood restaurants and fine sandy beaches.
Further south along the coast is the ancient town of Agrigento, founded in 582BC by Greek settlers. Here you will find the unforgettable Valley of the Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage site, with the remains of eight Greek temples. In July, their illuminated columns make a beautiful backdrop to the annual Blues & Wine Soul Festival. Another spellbinding ancient site are the Ancient Greek temples at tranquil Selinunte.
You can also soak up the simple pleasures of the countryside around the resort. Explore vineyards, olive and lemon groves, or find your own secret sandy cove. And don’t forget to take advantage of the resort’s 1.8km stretch of private coastline.
