About Sicily

Right in the heart of the Mediterranean, Sicily is a land of legends. Whether these are the legends of ancient poets such as Homer and Virgil, the legendary cooking which awaits you in one of the region’s many restaurants, or the legendary sight of Mount Etna looming over the east coast, Sicily is home to stories, seductive tastes and sublime sights.

Sicily is mountainous and volcanic, and surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea. With a landscape both rugged and enclosed in sparkling waters, Sicily is a perfect destination for both outdoor adventurers and sun lovers alike. The two main cities are Palermo and Catania and a trip wouldn’t be complete without a journey into these cities’ bustling marketplaces. History lovers should pay a visit to classical Syracuse and for a volcanic hike head to Mount Stromboli. Sicily has many ways you can spend your time in the sun and the beaches are particularly stunning.

Book With Us

Sicily is a very popular tourist destination, and we have more than 2,300 hotels and apartments for you to choose from. Ranging from 5-star seaside palaces in Mazzaro to stylish bed and breakfasts in Trapani, Sicily offers a fantastic range of properties. As well as accommodation, we’ll also help you find the best flights available and can assist with transfers and car hire if you’re looking to explore the region.

When To Go

Like much of Italy, the mid-summer season in Sicily can get very hot and crowded so it’s best to find a hotel that you know you can completely relax in at the end of the day. If you travel a little earlier or later, say in May or September, the weather will still be very warm and you’ll have a lot more room to breathe. While winters aren’t too cold, Mount Etna will see snow, which offers opportunities for skiing.

Sightseeing and must-sees

  • Experience the Sicilian marketplace, Palermo
    For a taste of contemporary Sicily, head into the marketplaces of Palermo. These chaotic but exciting places will bombard your senses with everything from fresh fish to the sharp scent of lemons.
  • Explore an historic city, Syracuse
    Syracuse was, at its peak, the largest city in the ancient world. While the city has modernised, many remnants of its rich past remain, making it a worthwhile destination, particularly for classicists.
  • Hike a volcano, Mount Etna
    Hiking up the tallest volcano on the European continent can be an arduous task, but it’s worth it for the sublime views and steaming volcanic rock. Smaller volcanos such as Fossa di Vulcano are also an option and can be conquered in much less time.
  • See the Temple of Concordia, Agrigento
    Another must-see for an insight into Sicily’s classical past, the Temple of Concordia was built around the time of 430 BC and converted into a Christian basilica in the 6th Century. It has survived well considering the many earthquakes and wars Sicily has faced.
  • Visit the ancient Teatro Greco, Neapolis
    The highlight of the Neapolis archaeological park near Syracuse, this ancient theatre once sat 16,000 people and in its history will have seen the work of famous dramatists Sophocles and Euripides.
