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.

    “The place has plenty of places, a small harbor and shopping market. The real life on the streets and the public places begins in the evening, a small ice cream shop at the entrance is present, the ice cream is delicious. The prices in the restaurants are not overpriced, the price-performance ratio (large pizza 8-10 euros).

    To explore the region, you need in any case a car. There is also a train from Tusa Palermo, excursions there is enough. To the beach you should take in any case closed slippers to easily get into the water (stone beach).”

    “Not overrun by tourists. Restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlors are available. There is also a supermarket where you can stock up with the necessities. A quiet village.”

    “Castel di Tusa is a small, quiet but typical village. It has a nice (albeit pebble) beach. There are several restaurants and the landlord has an excellent ice cream parlor where you have the best ice cream (and other treats such as cannelloni, macaroons and vibrios) can eat in Italy. The village is not very touristy, but it definitely has its charm. Conveniently, the station is 200 meters away from where you comfortably to include Cefalu, Messina or Palermo can go. The area is surrounded by parklands. The Madonie Mountains are highly recommended.”

    “Below the apartment is a bar and a pizzeria (highly recommended), where you can experience the atmosphere of Sicilian life. In close proximity (at the station) is a discount store, where you can stock up on essentials. Otherwise, you could buy every day in a small supermarket (near the beach) bread, sausage, cheese etc.. Fruits and vegetables you can get with the traveling street vendors. Furthermore, there is a fish restaurant and oceanfront another Diner. The station allows one a comfortable ride by train to Cefalu, Palermo (recommended), and of course in the opposite direction. A car is however quite recommendable. The nearest good beach walk behind Finale (10 km). Of course you can also use the beach (rocks) at the site. Castel di Tusa is a friendly little place.”

    “Milianni (the village or group of houses at the foot of the hills to the house) is not really worth mentioning. For shopping needs are in a nearby village (eg Finale or Castel di Tusa) down (10min by veh.) The house is secluded and about 7 km to the next town. Beaches are in the north of Sicily id usually rocky beaches which makes comfortable reclining difficult. To find parking for the beach visit, is - difficult just in the season. Nevertheless, the area has with their village and the natural magic of the island, so you feel very comfortable there.”
