What to See & Do in Sicily

Sicily has so much to offer visitors, all the year round, whether you wish to relax or sightsee, whatever the weather! Sicily has it all...

The Italian island of Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, offers magnificent views of the spectacular coastline and of Mount Etna, Europe's highest active volcano.  It is an island rich in culture and history and is renowned for its incredible cuisine. There is a longer warm weather season than in other parts of Italy with spring starting early, when in many areas the ground is carpeted with wildflowers as early as February. The warm weather means that it is an all year round destination and visitors can sunbathe and swim as late as November.
