With ancient villages, bustling cities and idyllic beaches, it’s little wonder why people dream of a holiday to Sicily. As the second largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily has a fascinating history, evidence of which can be found throughout the region at sites such as Agrigento and the baroque towns of the Val di Noto. Sicily is architecturally spectacular, particularly in its capital city of Palermo and in Catania. Here, the best way to soak up the culture is over an authentic Mediterranean meal and wandering through the ancient streets.

 Away from the cities, Sicily’s rich heritage pours into smaller villages, which sprawl over hilltops and down to the coast. The island’s beaches are some of the finest in the world, with soft sand and rocky coves giving way to crystal clear water. Many hotels in Sicily are right by the sea, so you won’t have to venture far to take a dip. If you’d rather unwind by the pool, you can still admire the coast from the comfort of your Sicily hotel. 

 If you choose to spend your holiday in Sicily on the east coast, you’ll never be too far from the imposing and mysterious Mount Etna. The active volcano provides a spectacular backdrop, particularly from the city of Catania, where it can be seen smoking in the distance behind the beautiful old buildings. 

Wherever you decide to spend your trip to the island, you won’t be short of inspiration. Sicily’s azure water and ancient architecture are difficult to resist and if you choose to book a package holiday to Sicily, all the stress of planning will be taken away, so you can kick back and enjoy your adventure. Choose from a selection of luxury five star resorts or quaint Sicily hotels in the mountains, perfect for romantic breaks or family holidays

Explore Sicily

Sicily has many lovely sandy beaches and a wealth of holiday towns and villages. Situated on the waterfront near Taormina, Giardini-Naxos is one of the most sophisticated seaside towns in Sicily and the sandy beach is considered as one of the best on the island. Palermo, the capital, is a heady mix, combining modern commerce with ancient history. Here, attractive Liberty style buildings sit side by side with ancient monuments, whilst luxurious palm filled gardens provide a refuge from what can be a chaotic but always fascinating city. There is so much that makes up this beautiful island that it is impossible to see everything in just one trip.
