Sicily - Italy

Last week Giuseppe from Italy, asked me if i'd like to trade with him. I never say no to italian cards and this one is just 1 of the 5 cards he sent me. 
On the card there's a map of Sicily and images of Noto, Tindar, Palermo, Monreale, Taormina, Segesta, Ragusa, Villa Romana del Casale, Cefalu, Trapani, Agrigento and Siracusa!

Mainland, Sicilia is the largest island in the Mediterranean and the southernmost region  of Italy. Famous for its blue skies and mild winter climate Sicilia is also home to Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano. This fertile paradise was settled by Siculi, Phonecians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Moors, Normans, Spaniards and Bourbons among others, and the remnants of these astounding cultures cover the entire island, from the temples of Agrigento to the priceless mosaics of Piazza Armerina and the ancient capital of Siracusa. Smaller islands, such as the Aeolian, Aegadean and Pelagian chains as well as Pantelleria, just 90 miles off of the African coast, are also part of Sicilia, offering superb beaches. - in:
