Sicily in August

You have two worries: visit a place that you don’t like and find yourself in a very crowded place. For this reasons, you want to know where to go in Sicily in August. Because you have decided that this will be the destination of your next vacation: Sicily is a beautiful land that will not disappoint you.

And here you can find five ideas to have a perfect holiday.


1. The cities

August is the ideal month to visit some of the most beautiful cities in Sicily. Two in particular: Palermo and Catania. Because these places are very ancient, with several things to see and to do. And they are uncrowded during August.

Are you worried about the proverbial hot summer of Sicily? There is no problem: there are several (and beautiful) beaches near Palermo and Catania, such as Mondello and la Playa.


2. The beaches

For you, August is synonym for sea, sand, sun and relaxation. But you have to be prepared: the most beautiful beaches of Sicily are crowded. Alternatively, there are two other parts of Sicily where you can find beautiful and (relatively) uncrowded beaches:

  • beaches of eastern Sicily: Isola Bella, Calamosche, Punta Secca, Isola delle Correnti, San Lorenzo
  • beaches of western Sicily: Addaura, San Vito Lo Capo, Riserva naturale orientata dello Zingaro, Scopello, Isola delle Femmine, Cala Rossa


3. The most beautiful places of Sicily

A recommended solution for those who plan to spend an “on the road” holiday. There is a ten days journey, from Messina to Milazzo. Ten days for ten places to see: Taormina, Etna, Ortigia, Ragusa Ibla, Valle dei Templi, Favignana, Erice, Segesta, Cappella Palatina, Milazzo.


4. Islands

In other words: Egadi Islands or Aeolian Islands? Among the islands of Sicily, these attract the most visitors. Egadi Islands are a good place if you’d like to have a holiday dedicated only to relaxation. Aeolian Islands are recommended for those who want to see the other islands of this archipelago with a boat excursion.


5. Tours
