The White Lotus in Sicily

Taormina-white-lotus

The White Lotus,  has returned to HBO for its new season, leaving behind the Hawaiian paradise for the Dolce Vita sheen of Sicily. The characters have arrived at the titular hotel’s Italian address for a week of Aperol Spritz-fueled decadence and indulgence.

As in season 1, a property of the Four Seasons represents the hotel Sicilian White Lotus and while the facts alternate, the picturesque surroundings of sea and Sicilian atmosphere frame

Much of The White Lotus in Sicily takes place in the shadow of Mt Etna in the charming clifftop town of Taormina, though our characters do frequently venture off-campus for cultural excursions, whether it’s to explore ancient villages or take a tour of The Godfather‘s filming locations. 

Some of the scenes was filmed in the Sicilian cities of Palermo and Noto, as well as on the surrounding Ionian Sea. Other bits were shot at the Castello degli Schiavi in the coastal town of Fiumefreddo (also known for featuring in The Godfather), as well as the beachside 

About Sicily

Sicily is an island—the Mediterranean’s largest—with an incredibly rich and turbulent history. The earliest signs of human activity here date back to 12,000 BC, and due to its geographic location, it has been invaded, conquered, and fought over by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Spanish, and French. The result is a vibrant, culturally diverse destination. And then there is its pièce de résistance: Mount Etna, Italy’s largest volcano, that towers over the northeast, as magnanimous as he is volatile.

All this makes the whole series The White Lotus Sicily full of ideas for perfectly instagrammable moments.
