short break June 2016: Sicily

A short break in June 2016: what better occasion to enjoy a pleasant vacation? You have also chosen the destination: it will be Sicily, that you have never seen or that you’d like to see once more. Now, you just need some good ideas.

 

1. San Vito lo Capo

One of the most beautiful beaches in Sicily is here and it’s a good reason to visit this place. But San Vito lo Capo is not only sea: this small white village in the province of Trapani is surrounded by a spectacular nature, as riserva dello Zingaro and golfo di Castellammare demonstrate. Erice, a Medieval village built seven hundred meters above sea level, is near.

Do you like couscous? Well, Cous cous fest preview will take place in San Vito lo Capo from June 1 to 3: a weekend dedicated only to taste this culinary specialty.

 

2. Palermo

Sicilian capital solution is a great idea if you don’t have decided yet what to do during this June 2016 short break in Sicily. For one, simple reason: Palermo is a large and ancient city where you can find everything you could wish for during a holiday, from beaches to excursions and culture.

We have a 3-days itinerary to visit Palermo:

  • First day: the city (Ballarò, la Cattedrale, la Cappella Palatina, i Quattro Canti, la chiesa della Martorana)
  • Second day: beaches (Mondello, Addaura, punta Raisi, capo Rama)
  • Third day: the surroundings (Parco delle Madonie, Riserva naturale Isole delle Femmine and grotta Carburangeli)

 

3. Riviera dei Limoni

Is slow travel what you desire for this June 2016 short break in Sicily? Again, we have the idea for you: it is the so-called Riviera dei Limoni, along Sicilian eastern coast. It’s a 7-days itinerary but, if you have only three or four days for this journey, the places that you must see are Taormina, Aci Castello/Acitrezza and Randazzo.
