Photography in Sicily

An enchanting volcanic island between Europe and Africa

Introduction

There are a whole world of sights and experiences crammed into the small island of Sicily: Classic Italian Baroque hill towns, olive groves, castles, North African style markets and buildings, and a massive smoking volcano to name just a few. This mini adventure will take you all over the island, capturing epic photographs and eating incredible local food at every turn.

What Makes This Trip Special?

The variety of experiences you'll have make this trip feel more exotic than your average European holiday. One minute you're walking through a moonscape 3000m up on Mt. Etna, the next you're taking in the sights, sounds and smells of a sprawling street market. Of course there are plenty of classically beautiful towns to visit as well. Typically for a Frui trip, we'll be staying in characterful, independent accommodation that helps us get closer to the culture and history of the place. And like anywhere in Italy, you're never far from great food, which always comes with it's own distinct local specialities.

Why Photograph Here?

There's a huge variety of subject matter to capture and enhance your skills. The landscapes range from the surreal scenes of Etna to the classically beautiful vineyards of the interior. If you like street scenes, you'll find everything from the sedate life and baroque architecture of the smaller towns, to the gritty chaos of Catania and Palermo's markets. With your expert tutor on hand throughout, you'll have the individual support to capture it all in a way that's unique to you.
