From the temple to the beach

Sicily | The Italian Mediterranean island Sicily does not only offer summer, sun and lovely beaches but also many cultural highlights. A compulsory point on each itinerary for a Sicily vacation are the countless testimonies of past times that a spread out across the island. Some examples include the world famous „Valley of the Temples“ in Agrigent with the structures more than 2,500 years old and are testament of Greek settlement on this island during the ancient times. Besides this also well preserved remains of antique structures can be visited in Syrakus oder Catania which are equally appealing.

Those who need to cool down after these historical adventures will find many places to do so along the more than 1,000 kilometres of coastline. In the north and east you will mainly find steep cliffs and rocks towering above the sea with a number of picturesque bays lying in-between them. The southwestern part is flatter and characterised by beautiful beach strips.

Sicily has though much more to offer than just temples and beaches. Explore some of the interesting smaller and larger towns such as Palermo, Messina, Ragusa, Trapani or Taormina. Alternatively go on a boat tour that will take you to the Aeolian Islands and Aegadian Islands or Malta that is also not that far away.

atraveo has a selection of more than 2,800 holiday apartments and houses. Some of the most popular  places for a holiday home vacation include Gioiosa Marea, Sciacca, Scicli, Giardini Naxos, Trappeto and Marina di Modica.

Dancing on a volcano

Sicily is not only the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea but also has the highest and most active volcanoes in Europe – Etna that you can explore up close on your vacation to Sicily. There are a number of guided hiking tours offered that take you to summit craters, lava fields and places where eruptions occur frequently. You should not miss out on this exciting tour. The hikes usually take place between mid May until the end of October. But one must be careful: It is important to remember the Etna is still an active volcano. Inform yourself when there of the present dangers and options to explore the area in one of the many information centres.

Those who want more volcanic action will not want to miss out on guided tours to the Volcano Islands Volcano and Stromboli situated north of the coast of Sicily. Particularly the very active Stromboli offers a great spectacle as one can observe eruptions of red lava nearly every minute or hour. Both islands are part of the island group Aeolian Islands and there are regular connections from Messina and Milazzo.

If you have now become fascinated by volcanoes then you might want to pop over to the mainland and explore Mount Vesuvius in the Bay of Naples which is another famous volcano. It is by no means as active as those on Sicily though it is not extinct and there is speculation whether it could erupt again soon. The potential devastation such an eruption could cause can be seen in the famous ruins of the Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum that were engulfed by lava in 79 AD. A visit to Mount Vesuvius could be incorporated within journey to and back from a holiday home vacation on Sicily. There are regular ferries that operate between Naples or Salerno and the Sicilian ports of Palermo and Catania.

    “Everything within easy reach, etc. There are many possibilities to make the supermarket, beach, ristorantes trips, if the weather should not play along with Scala dei Turchi, Valle dei Templi, Ereclea Minoa, Torre Salsa and the surrounding nature reserves. Porto Empedocle is the nearest town, which can be reached in about 5-10 minutes to make purchases, to visit the typical Sicilian bazaar to buy cheap fresh fish and so on ...”

    “A few kilometers away you will find restaurants and grocery stores. The place itself is (at first glance) not very much, even the beach (about 10-15 min walk) we did not quite as nice as the other designated bathing beaches in the vicinity, but maybe it was at the season (mid-October). Good to see accessible and beautiful walk is the Scala dei Turchi. If one is mobile, one is very fast in Agrigento (about 10-15 minutes by car) or in other surrounding towns / near beautiful beaches. For more adventure and sightseeing you have to drive a little longer then however. For us it was mainly a relaxed beach holiday with small excursions into the surrounding area. It was planned from the beginning as well as beautiful way.”

    “Bars and restaurants in the area, the village itself does not offer much. Problem: always overloaded garbage cans by the roadside.”

    “It has different clean beaches. Just outside of San Leone it has a beach with beach volleyball and soccer goals. The swimming area is protected very well against waves. For children and young people of the swimming area in the sea is highly recommended and safe. Swimming at 25 degrees is a valued daily pleasure. The population is extremely cordial. Shopping prima: Fruttivendolo, Max, cafes, bakeries ... We have different routes to San Leone found by bicycle, on foot (1h), by car (10 ').
    And it is negative: Actually atraveo takes for the non-existent access to the sea money refund, because the decision was a central argument. We would not have otherwise taken the house.”

This is how holiday rental owners described Agrigento

the Magna Graecia; along with the one in Selinunte this is the widest archaeological park of the island, hosting some of the best preserved Greek riuns in the world.

There not just ancient ruins in Southern Sicily though: the coast is a true jewel and Villa Olympo is just 5 km from one of its best beaches, Punta Bianca. This sandy beach is framed by a white limestone cliff, that makes it look a lot like the famous Scala dei Turchi (Stair of the Turks beach), which is also located a few kilometers away following the road from Agrigento to Realmonte.
