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.

    “In Catania there is everything your heart desires, the people are very helpful and considerate. It is recommended that only a small car in the city to drive because the traffic is chaotic (first come, first drives), but it works somehow. The scooter driver, overtake a left and right, but they are used to. There are a lot of cars with minor damage, which seems to be normal. At night it is rather a little scary, even if we have not had any bad experiences, we were always very careful. It is a lively, very lively city, as we were but already warned several times at the airport to be cautious, always remained an uneasy feeling that the stay has spoiled us something.”

    “A very lively city with some sights. The traffic is very chaotic, the scooters overtake left and right and there are no traffic rules. Who is an unsafe driver, should not come here rather with a larger vehicle. Catania is a good starting point for lovely trips to Taomina and Syracuse and it is not far to the Etna. The people are very friendly and considerate. Nevertheless, we have often been warned and therefore had a bad feeling.”

Catania is a beautiful city known for its charm, warmth, cultural heritage and magic views, an ideal spot for all year round vacations.

the Mount Etna volcano, and a two hour drive to the capital of the island, Palermo, and the fascinating Agrigento. Visitors will find frequent connections by bus and train to most of the major cities of Sicily .

The city is full of interesting places to visit: from the typical baroque architecture found in the city center to the green alleys of the Villa Bellini and the never-ending "movida" hanging out by the Massimo Bellini Theatre public square.

The Etna and the sea.
Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe, often shows its majestic beauty with spectacular eruptions, and can always be viewed above the roofs of Etnea Street.

From the north to the south of Catania one can easily reach charming black-sand beaches naturally created by lava stone as well as soft white sand beaches, the “playa”.

Catania is also place to taste.
You can't miss the sweet "cannoli", the famous "arancini", the “pasta alla norma”, the fresh fish or the grilled horse meat.

The fish market is a typical place to visit, characteristic for its colorful folclore. This is indeed a place that has been left untouched by time, where fishermen sell fresh fish using the same methods as their forefathers.

There is still a lot more to discover in this warm, southern Italian city: things, places and people you will never forget.
