Largest islands in Italy 2018

Italy is a country in the Mediterranean area surrounded by the Tyrrhenian, Ionian and Adriatic Seas. The territory of Italy consists of the Appenine Penisula and roughly 450 islands. The country’s biggest island, which at the same time constitutes its largest administrative region, is Sicily.

Tourism on the island

Every year many tourists from all around the globe come to Sicily to admire its rich culture, discover the history, enjoy breathtaking landscapes, taste some cannoli or climb Mount Etna. In 2018, the most visited area of the island was the province of Palermo, which registered approximately 1.14 million tourist arrivals.

Sicily, the land of volcanoes

Mount Etna, the symbol of Sicily, is one of the most active volcanos in the world. It is not, however, the only phenomena of this kind in the region - apart from Etna, there are other five volcanos located on the Sicilian territory. Overall in 2019, there were nine active volcanoes in Italy, six located in Sicily, two - Mount Vesuvius and Phlegraean Fields – in Campania and the last one in the area of Colli Albani in Lazio.
