Worlds Biggest Islands
Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, is just off the toe of Italys boot. It has been a crossroads of cultures for 3,000 years, a history reflected in its diverse architecture, cuisine and ancient ruins. Palermo, the capital, offers colorful street life, bustling markets and Byzantine mosaics at the Cappella Palatina. On Sicily s eastern edge is Mt. Etna, Europe s highest active volcano.
