Frequently Asked Questions About Sicily Tours & Vacation Packages

Some must-visit destinations in Sicily include the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Mount Etna, Taormina, Palermo, Syracuse, Ragusa, Modica, Noto, and Cefalù.

The best time to visit Sicily is during the spring (April to June) and fall (September to October) seasons when the weather is pleasant and tourist crowds are relatively smaller. However, Sicily can be enjoyed year-round, with mild winters and hot summers characteristic of the Mediterranean climate.

Depending on your interests and the sites you wish to visit, allocating at least one week for a comprehensive Sicily tour is recommended. This allows sufficient time to explore the major attractions while enjoying the local culture and cuisine. However, even a shorter 1-4 day visit can provide a glimpse of Sicily's highlights.

Some unique experiences to consider during a Sicily vacation include:

  • Visiting the Greek Theatre of Taormina, graced with the most spectacular backdrops. 
  • A drive up Mt. Etna, Europe's largest active volcano. Ascend through the fertile foothills, bypassing small villages, lush forests, ancient craters, and lava flows to see amazing lunar landscapes and houses surrounded by lava. Admire astonishing panoramic views over the eastern Sicilian coast and the Ionian Sea whilst discovering the history of Sicily’s most popular attraction and its eruptions.
  • Visit Syracuse, at one stage more powerful than Athens. One of the most influential cities of "Magna Grecia." The fascinating archaeological remains give you an inkling of the glories of its past. Move on to Ortigia, the beautiful medieval island with one of the most symbolic churches of Sicily, combining paganism and the transition to Christianity. The quaint shorefront, the whitewashed buildings, and the baroque influence - it's a must.
