Scenic interior area of Sicily

As I'm learning about Sicily, I really like all the coastal area's all the way around the island.

How about a really good location away from the beach's, in the interior part of the island.

Maybe somewhere up in the hills/mountains, a nice little village to hang out in for a couple days. With some really nice scenery to observe. Does such a place exist?

From Enna you would enjoy a great scenery in central Sicily, it's high on a hilltop that is the higher in the nearby area, when the weather is clear you can see around as far as Etna.

Enna is a nice town with amazing views.

You might also consider Piazza Armerina.

Although the Villa Romana del Casale is a top tourist attraction, Villa Romana del Casale is located outside town. Piazza Armerina itself is local and not touristy. Staying in Piazza Armerina also has the additional advantage of leaving your luggage at your accommodation when visiting the Villa Romana del Casale, since there's no left luggage storage in Piazza Armerina.

But then there are the towns of the Madonie.

Castelbuono, Petralia Soprana, Petralia Sottana, and Polizzi Generosa are some of the prettiest, but Gangi has been named the 2014 winner for the Borgo Più Bello d’Italia, the Most Beautiful Village in Italy!

Perhaps consider what you'd like to do or see from this interior base.

Good question Vagabonda, What we'd like to see or do an interior base. Not much of anything.

Would like to find a town with exceptional views, and just hang out and enjoy the people and the cafe's for a few days away from all the touristy stuff. We'll get plenty of the tourist stuff on other days.

Grazie for the links

Well then Enna has the views.

But you could also consider a town in the Madonie, or a stay in the countryside at a winery, or an agiturismo.
