HOLIDAYS IN SICILY
Sicily is considered to be one of the most fascinating places in Italy, where there can be established the most fulfilling holidays. If you are planning a Sicily vacation you might want to know that the beautiful region consists of a mixture of landscapes, history, architecture, and other unique attractions. In fact, Wolfgang Goethe said about Sicily:
“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 travelers 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 breathtaking 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 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 colors, 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 flavors; its great volcanoes are symbols of the irresistible beauty and vitality of this incredibly charming region.
