Visit Sicily

And God created Sicily…Visit a unique place of art, archaeology, folklore. And breath and feel the heritage of Archimedes and Saint Paul. Of course, the excellent and healthy Mediterranean food is also a remarkable pro to take a refreshing vacation in this part of Italy. This fantastic island will create moments to remember!

“Bedda” is the Sicilian word for “beautiful” – and this is exactly how this fantastic region should be described.

CITY OF PETRALIA SOPRANA

Petralia Soprana, was named the most beautiful village in Italy in 2019 and is located in the heart of Sicily, in the province of Palermo (100km) . Petralia Soprana is the highest town in the Madonie, dominates a wide landscape that ranges from the snow-capped peaks of Etna, to the city of Enna and the mountains of Palermo and then the wide valleys and waterways of the countryside that surround it. The suggestion aroused by the view from the Petralia plateau is intense, in the days when the stratified clouds at the lowest altitudes offer suspended landscapes and colorful sunsets. Center of considerable importance during the Greek and Carthaginian domination, Petralia was the first Sicilian city to be dominated by the Romans, called "Petra" it was one of the cities that supplied the largest quantities of grain to the Roman Empire.

CITY OF PALERMO

Palermo is the capital of Sicily and one of the most fascinating cities in Europe: among the streets of its historic center you will discover the most incredible places. Palermo is a modern, multi-ethnic city and one of the safest in the world. For those who want to explore, get ready for big surprises: streets and alleys of the old city open onto monuments and splendid churches ranging from the Norman period to the magnificent Sicilian Baroque. And then, a few kilometers from the city, delightful characteristic places await visitors who want sun and sea. All this within a multi-ethnic setting that colors the streets and historic markets where you can enjoy the most original street food.

The 12th-century Cathedral of Palermo houses royal tombs, while the imposing neoclassical Teatro Massimo is famous for its opera performances. Also in the center are the Palazzo dei Normanni, a royal palace dating back to the 9th century, and the Palatine Chapel, with Byzantine mosaics. Busy markets include the central street market Ballarò and the Vucciria, near the harbor.

CITY OF CEFALU’

Cefalù ( 70km from Palermo), one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is one of the busiest holiday destinations and resorts on the island . Is located on the northern coast of Sicily, about 70 km from Palermo.

Kephaloidion and Coephaledium for Greeks and Romans, meaning head or also top, extremity. Gafludi for the Arabs, fortified city and abundant waters.

The city is dominated by a monumental rock that rises up to 270 metres in height already known to the Phoenicians as “promontory of Hercules” on which the Temple of Diana stands, a megalithic building linked to the worship of the water, as indicated by the nearby cistern dating from the ninth century BC. The historic district is lying in the shadow of this bastion and clings around its beating heart which is undoubtedly the Duomo, a gigantic cathedral built by Roger II, the Norman.

MOUNT ETNA – Europe´s greatest natural wonder

Mount Etna is a living, sacred mountain of legend and myth. Sicily´s highest mountain has a height of approximately 3.300 meters. When considering an excursion, you should – even in warm summer days – be prepared to discover snow on its top.

CITTA’ DI CATANIA

Catania is the city where the mountains meet the sea. Experience golden coasts with orange and lemon orchards. Learn about different cultures and how they influence past and presence of Sicily, by i.e., taking an excursion to the historic Greek amphitheatre in Taormina.

"I am really grateful to the entire team at the clinic for how they are handling such a difficult situation! Covid has changed you only for the better. Thank you"
Busting myths! Disinformation has been circulating online regarding a number of risks of receiving the COVID-19 vaccination that are simply not true.

The internet and social media present us with a wealth of information as we have never experienced before, but we need to be vigilant and able to separate facts from “fake news” – especially during exceptional times such as the one we are experiencing with the global pandemic. Here are some of the myths around the COVID-19 vaccines and the facts that demonstrate they are not true.

Any vaccine, including COVID-19 vaccines, must pass robust safety tests before they are approved for use, and are then subsequently reassessed periodically once in use. Any approved vaccine in the countries we operate will have had the evidence of safety reviewed in detail by the regulatory authorities prior to being able to vaccinate any person. The COVID-19 vaccines have been tested in some of the largest clinical trials that have ever been performed with vaccines, involving tens of thousands of individuals.

It is not currently known if you have effective immunity from having had the disease, therefore you should receive the vaccination. However, you might be recommended to wait 90 days from diagnosis to be vaccinated. You can also be re-infected with the disease if you have had it already. Current evidence suggests natural immunity may not last very long.

COVID-19 vaccines will most commonly cause mild reactions or side effects. These reactions should go away on their own within a few days. These mild side effects include a low-grade fever, or pain or redness at the injection site.

Having the vaccination does not mean you cannot infect others although it should protect you from becoming serious unwell. There is also the possibility that you may be a silent spreader of the disease even though have been vaccinated. It is therefore important to continue with the COVID-19 steps put in place in your country and within Diaverum clinics and continue to follow the contingency plan.

No, there is no possibility whatsoever that the new RNA vaccines, like the ones developed by Pfizer and Moderna, can change the genes in your body.

It has been reported that COVID-19 Vaccines can cause infertility, due to the reaction in the body from COVID-19 vaccines. This is not true. There is no scientific rationale, or reasonable basis to believe that there is a link between the vaccination and infertility and miscarriage. In addition, no other virus or vaccination has been shown to cause infertility. There is some anecdotal evidence that pregnant women may be more likely to be hospitalised due to COVID-19 infection.

The individual is protected no matter how many people are vaccinated. It is true however that the more people who are vaccinated, the more vulnerable groups that cannot have the vaccine are protected.
