Sicily, the rugged yet extremely alluring southwestern Italian island is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Bound by the Mediterranean Sea in the southern half and the Tyrrhenian Sea on the northern half this beautiful island is home to the largest volcano in Europe, the Mt. Etna. Sicily is located in the middle of the Mediterranean in such a way that it forms the point of convergence of Italy, Africa and Greece.
The positioning of Sicily in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea has bestowed a typical Mediterranean climate on Sicily. The summers are hot and humid and the winters are mild and wet. Hence the best time to visit Sicily is during the Spring and Autumn season. Another most attractive aspect of the positioning of Sicily is that it is one of the best fishing locations in the world. Being an island state and having access to the Mediterranean Sea from all the sides makes Sicily one of the top ten fishing destinations in the world.
