"To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything."
With a wonderful climate, Sicily trips can be made all the year-round and each season will offer you its own distinctive charm, with eternal crossroads that will continue to seduce travellers with dazzling diversity and wonderful treasures.
If you love art or if you’re looking to soak up a little culture on your summer holiday, you cannot go wrong if you are planning a holiday to Sicily. A Sicily vacation is also amazing because of the mythical history which has resulted in some fantastic sights. Trips to Sicily will amaze you with pretty piazzas, picturesque regions, with some of the most breath-taking sights in Europe. Explore its fascinating history on a day trip to the Valley of Temples in Agrigento, browse the stylish boutiques of Taormina, or get to admire the Mediterranean sun on the sandy shores of Cefalu beach. These are just a few of the attractions and places where to go, and of course, don’t forget to taste a glass of the local wine.
The best time when you can travel to Sicily is from March to October when the days are brighter and sunny. That is why, during this period of the year one can’t miss the chance to explore the way in which nature has endowed all its wonders to this land: mountains, hills and above all, the sea, with its incredible colours, clear-crystal waters, in no way inferior to those of other seas. Here, the Mediterranean Sea, with its many little islands scattered around the coasts of Sicily – The Aeolians, Egadi and Pelagie Islands, Pantelleria and Ustica – offers unique and intense sceneries, scents and flavours. Its great volcanoes are symbols of the irresistible beauty and vitality of this incredibly charming region.
There is no place quite like Sicily. That is why the Mediterranean island has become one of Italy’s top tourist attractions. If you have decided to explore Sicily’s beauty, you must be aware of what to do and where to go and the list of things not to be missed in this place of ravishing beauty, high style, great ice cream and fabulous food. Boasting everything from nature reserves to archaeological ruins, Sicily has the best places dedicated to science and for those in love with history, as well as everyone in between. Most of Sicily’s attractions are cultural or scientific, but you can also opt for entertaining activities spent with your family on fun days out, in summer amusement & water parks such as Etnaland or Parcallario Adventure.
