When many people think of Italy, they don’t necessarily think of Sicily. Images of the Leaning Tower of Piza, Venetian gondolas or the Colosseum come to mind. But Italy has so much to offer, and the island of Sicily is no exception! Home to lots of host families for Greenheart Travel’s Teach in a Homestay program in Italy, this is our fastest growing placement preference.

And for good reason! Sicily has a unique culture, beautiful coastline and traditional Italian architecture as well as some of the best food in the country! Even though it’s lesser known, Sicily will still give you the authentic Italian experience you’re looking for in a homestay program.

To help inspire some serious wanderlust, here are 15 photos to get you excited about traveling to the Italian island of Sicily. All of these photos are taken by homestay teacher, Stevie Coulthard, who is currently teaching in Floridia, Italy on the eastern coast of Sicily.
