HOW SICILIAN ARE YOU?

In Sicily I have met some of the kindest, most generous, friendly and hospitable people in the world. The food, wine, history and culture of the island are endlessly fascinating whilst its scenery is breathtaking. Living here is not without its frustrations, though!

Could YOU become a Sicilian? How much do you know about this interesting island and its people? Would you have to learn "Pazienza", like me? Take this little quiz to find out! To any Sicilians reading this, I have composed the quiz with affection.
