San Vito Lo Capo, seaside gem

Falling in love with one of Sicily’s most charming towns is easy: the road that takes you to San Vito Lo Capo runs in such a beautiful landscape one could easily stop more than ten times to capture the blue and green beauty of the sea and the rugged, sunburnt hills that surround it. Once you get there, this small beach town will win you over with its handmade ceramic stores, lively restaurant and bar scene and never ending series of festivals and events. The most famous one is the Couscous Festival, which takes place every September and brings thousands of visitors to the area to savor the best couscous dishes around.
