More About Sicily

Sicily is a popular destination with tourists from all over the world who flock to Sicily's beautiful beaches and stunning views. Experience all that Sicily has to offer, from Arab-influenced architecture to the imposing Mount Etna.

Sicily Travel Guide

Home to Mt. Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe, Sicily is a rugged, Mediterranean island belonging to Italy, yet still remains its individuality in terms of art, architecture and cuisine (Sicily being among one of the great dessert-makers in Italy).

A ruggedly beautiful mountainous island to the south of Italy, Sicily boasts everything from volcanoes to picturesque villages to isolated beaches. The long history of being invaded by pretty much every regional superpower also means that it is a cultural melee of interesting influences.


Travel in Sicily

Getting around in Italy should pose no problem. The main roads are quick, easy and well constructed and, although the mountainous roads are somewhat more remote, they are none-the-less easily accessible to most tourists.

Public transport is good, with efficient buses and trains that run on regular timetables. Do be aware, however, that public transport services may be less frequent on Sundays than during the rest of the week. As with much of continental Europe, train tickets should always be validated on the platform before getting onto the train. A few of the bigger cities, notably Catania, have small underground networks.

Things to see in Sicily

The Valley of the Temples, south of modern day Agrigento, is well worth a visit. Here, you can discover the ruins of six ancient temples. There is an audio tour and a museum to help you better understand the amazing spectacle that you are seeing. Remember to take some bottled water if you are visiting in summer, for the weather takes no prisoners in Sicily!

The city of Catania lies at the base of Mount Etna, from where you can ascend one of southern Europe's last remaining active volcanoes. You can either choose to go with the normal tourists or, for a bit of extra cost, hire a volcanologist who will allow you to go a little bit more off the beaten path. The mountain is more than 3,000 metres above sea level, so it'll be cool even in the middle of summer - unless it is erupting, when it'll be considerably warmer!

A lot of food thought as being `Italian' is in actual fact from Sicily. This includes cannoli, ricotta and pine nut and almond biscuits. Much of this food comes with Arabic influences, thereby giving you the best of best worlds. Therefore, you should come to Sicily hungry and ready to be fed.

    Ferry Crossing to Sicily
    • Villa San Giovanni to Messina with Caronte & Tourist

      The crossing to Sicily was perfect and no problem. However the journey back was horrendous. The queues extended back to the motorway all the way through the town of Messina with 4 lanes of stationary traffic. I understand this might have been the busiest weekend of the year. But it would be worth warning travellers that they may not get the ferry they booked. If you have to connect to a flight - allow plenty of time.!! The scrabble for the ferry was awful.

    Vacation travel turned into a 16 hour torture
    • Salerno to Palermo with Grimaldi Lines

      The ferry departed 5 hours late. There were no Grimaldi people to explain this and security hardly speak English and do not know the answers. Check in is not trivial. People were sleeping on the floor blocking access to some doors. You cannot leave your place because it will be taken over by someone else. The ferry arrived to Palermo after 1am. We accidently woke up at 2am to see that all other cars have already left the ferry.

    Good
    • Napoli to Palermo with Tirrenia di Navigazione

      The best way to do this trip and save time.

    Huge ship, comfortable trip
    • Termini Imerese to Civitavecchia with Grandi Navi Veloci

      We left at ten in the evening and arrived at just after noon. The huge vessel had a multitude of facilities including several restaurants. One minor problemwas my cabin was at the very front of the ship (although facing inwards) - this meant that I had a long way to walk whenever leaving the cabin but also, more importantly, I got the full roll effect as the ship journeyed across the Med. Not easy to sleep, would have been better at the back of the ship. Disembarkation also took rather a long time but overall it was a pleasant journey.

    Excellant Ferry Service
    • Genoa to Palermo with Grandi Navi Veloci

      Everything about this service and the return was first class with one exception. The checking in process and location of the check in point needs much improvement. A map of port layout supplied with check in details and better signage at port would be a real help particularly at Palermo BUT this should not detract from an excellent service and ferry.
