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.

    “The place is very nice but also a bit remote, inconceivable without a car. Travel time in early June provides outside the condominium no opportunities for shopping - not even a small shop to buy bread, etc.! There is a single pizzeria in the village square, where you can have breakfast with reservation, the current owner also spoke German.”

    “In the village itself, there are, within walking distance, very good "Ristorante / Pizzeria", with very friendly service and very good food.
    Several shopping there in the near Ribera.
    Its prime location there are many possibilities for excursions. Eg Eraclea Minoa and Agrigento with its archaeological sites, a nature reserve with many hiking trails and Sciacca, a vibrant, very beautiful city.”

    “There is a pizzeria in the village (which belongs to the owners of housing) that serves coffee / deposit tobacco and newspapers). The village itself includes some streets without interest and crushed sun (the style is modern).
    For everything related to the daily, it is necessary to go to Ribeira.”
