Typical Sicily: Fuming volcanoes and the blue sea

In order to discover the diversity of Sicily you can rent a car and go on discovery tour by yourself or alternatively opt for a coach trip with tour guide. The volcano Mount Etna in the north of Sicily is with its frequent small eruptions Europe’s highest and most active volcano as well as the island’s most renowned sight. Furthermore it can even be ascended with experienced guides. An experience no holiday maker on Sicily should miss. Next to Mount Etna also Mount Stromboli carries its own fascination. The volcano is situated on the small same named island which is part of the Aeolian Islands and is permanently active. In irregular but short intervals there are smaller eruptions which offer a quite spectacular and breathtaking sight especially at dusk.

You can discover the sea not only from Sicily’s beaches relaxed during a great beach vacation but also in an active way on boat trips or diving. Off Sicily there are still some larger coral reefs and a large variety of fish that are at home in their original underwater habitat.

Discover Sicily's towns from a holiday home

On Sicily one can discover many lovely cities and small villages. Always worth a trip is the city Taormina, which can proudly look back on many famous visitors. Oscar Wilde, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Cary Grant are just few of those who treasured the charm of this city with its many typical Sicilian restaurants and shopping options. The Villa del Casale, UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, with its beautiful mosaics and other impressive Roman ruins are popular cultural tourist attractions. Also worth a visit is the city Palermo with its cathedral and pretty squares and parks as well as the famous catacombs of the Capuchin monastery. Further interesting cities on Sicily with many tourist attractions include Catania, Messina, Ragusa, Trapani, Agrigento and Syrakus.

Sicily's culinary specialities

Sicily’s cuisine is as diverse as the island itself. The history of Sicily’s ice cream dates back to the Roman Age. According to tradition it was invented at the foot of Mount Etna when sweet beverages that came from Arabia to the island were mixed with the ice of the volcano’s peak. The result was a sweet delicacy. Respectively the range of ice cream creations which can be enjoyed in the hot summer climate of the island is delicious and diverse.

Also Sicilian pastries are known to be delicious. Great wines are grown on Sicily, as well as figs, tangerines, mulberries, peaches, apricots, melons and many more which can be bought fresh at the regional markets.

Enjoying the Mediterranean climate

The climate on Sicily is primarily mild and sunny. During winter the temperature seldom drops below zero degrees. The most popular tourist season is due to the often very hot and dry summer the springtime, especially April and May, and the late summer between September and the beginning of November. Usually the temperatures in the heartland are lower as the regions are at a higher altitude than the coastal areas.  

By plane to Sicily

You either travel by plane or with your car to your holiday home vacation on Sicily. International airports with regular flights are available to Palermo, Catania and Trapani. Whilst on the island it is recommended to hire a car in order to reach the holiday home easily and to explore the region. Alternatively most of the larger holiday resorts – especially those close to the sea – are usually quite well connected to public transport.

Journey with the car and ferry to to the holiday apartment on Sicily

Those who want to travel with their own car can either drive down to southern Italy in two to three days or shorten the journey by combining it with booking a passage on a ship. Those who drive the whole route will have to take the ferry in the south of Calabria from San Giovanni to Messina which connects the mainland with Sicily in just 30 minutes. Alternatively you could choose a night ferry instead of the long drive through Italy which runs from the north Italian port Livorno or Genoa to Palermo and Catania.

    “This is a typical yet verschonter tourism fishing, with everything you need. Local, supermarket, fish market, vegetable, etc. Great for people who do not need High Life. Indispensable is a car - to Palermo City you drive about 35 minutes.”

    “In the small, sweet place Aspra, which is reached by a rented bungalow by car in about 3 minutes (we walked the 2km trail running, or hitchhiked - the people that you get to know here are genuine nice and about every 5th stops), there is not much to see, the beach is not so nice when he is the street 'Corso Italia' goes almost inundated with all kinds of garbage and algae. On the 'D'Italia Via Fume' he's already nice and clean, but we were always bask in the rocky beach access bungalow complex or when the waves would allow, swim. In the village there is a small shopping street, with all the little grocery stores you need, the little green ice cream shop on the corner is also highly recommended! Also convenient is that the tobacco shop, which is located very close to the Eisladens, aufhat 24 hours since nowhere else cigarettes are sold. If one street further, you will find a really good vegetable fruit store, the prices are extremely cheap and the fruits, especially tomatoes, taste insanely good. In addition, vegetables and fruits is also sold a lot on the road, and there is a small fish market.
    It is recommended to take swimming goggles themselves, unless you want to be a good diving mask for 16 euros from the 'Easy Shop' Buy that are good 2 Euro Children Goggles unfortunately little. If you continue, you will find a small overpriced supermarket prior to it is better to save money down the road and then turn left - to find the supermarket, we have for the time being rather run, although the road is quite simple - but the helpful Sicilians never tire of one of the way as much as possible in Italian to explain. If you have forgotten his bug spray at home, which is recommended by 'Ale' for children from the supermarket and only 2 euros. The butcher on the shopping street is really good and the grilled meat is delicious - much better than here in Germany, where do most any great difficulty with it. The price of the BBQ meat is extremely favorable to. Even the baker is very tasty (and pretty cheap) and the pizza with potatoes should have tried! For eating out, this small restaurant is the wooden terrace near the recommended Eisverkäufers. The Pizzaria above the spacious terrace, it was said, should not be so good. However, there are probably still a there. Near, with red carpet and probably a bit more expensive
    At the time we were there was fair and the evening was a sweet, colorful lighting on the streets. In addition, there was towards the end (it was the 15th of September) an incredibly beautiful fireworks! If only for it to make worthwhile in the place vacation (even if we do it for the time of booking were unaware).
    All in all a fine place and small!”
