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.

    Pretty good!
    • Overall a pleasant experience. We have a 6M motorhomes, and the check-in, loading and unloading were faultless. Food was varied and reasonably well-cooked. I am gluten intolerant and there were two or three main course options to choose from - a plus! We had a bunk cabin - which was fine except for the mattress, which was hard - and the heating controls did not work. The shower etc were excellent. The ship was clean and the crew were friendly - and everything happened on time. Pretty good!

    Genoa to Palermo
    • Not a bad deal, relaxing crossing. Recommended for all travelers to Palermo. The prepaid food is limited

    Tirrenia is a good reliable choice for the Naples to Palermo crossing
    • I was impressed. We make this crossing several times a year for work. This spring our cabin was newly refurbished with a comfy mattress and the bathroom in particular was very clean and new with lots of hot water. We had a nice meal in the canteen too.

    Long day
    • Lovely crossing but the time of return being cancelled with no reason explained was a nuisance. Especially when we saw an earlier ferry leaving about 5pm which we did,nt even know about. As we would have liked to have had the option at least. Luckily the taxi driver waited for us in Malta.
