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.

    “Francavilla is a lively mountain village but not particularly charming.
    The surroundings with many vineyards and beautiful scenery are truly worth visiting.”

    “Francavilla di Sicilia is a small community. Very typical of the country - little touristy. This must be love! But with a car coming from there as a starting point to beautiful cities like Taormina or Milazzo - connection to the Aeolian Islands. Also Ethna can visit comfortably alone by car.”

    “In Francavilla's going so much. No tourist center.
    The pizzeria makes a delicious pizza. The supermarket has everything.
    There is a pharmacy, ATM, etc. On a Friday was market.
    Taomina is not far. The Alcataraschlucht has to be seen. Both Etna stations can easily be reached within 1 or 1 1/2 hours. There direction Castiglione and continue some good wineries!”

    “A grocery store was near the house (but you had to go by car) but apart from that there was not much else to do in town.
    The people are nice but otherwise it is a sleepy little town.
    It is worth seeing is the one of all the small towns located on hilltops around.
    Sport and leisure can be found in the form of Farmhouse-places, but we never explored it.”
