Summer 2016 in Sicily


Summer 2016 is forthcoming: it’s time to decide where to spend the next holidays. Indeed, you have also chosen the destination: it’s Sicily. And now you need only some good ideas to plan the trip and enjoy the vacation.

Ideas such as these five:


1. Sicily of beaches

After choosing the destination, the first question is: where to find the best sea of Sicily? Well, it depends on the kind of vacation that you’d like to spend: are you planning a holiday dedicated to relaxation, hiking, and sports or with your family?

Whatever your favourite type of holiday is, Sicily has the beaches for you: from the most beautiful to the most suitable for children, from beaches for kite surfers and snorkelers to the wildest ones.


2. Eastern Sicily

For you, vacation means to see different places every day. In this case, for you there is this seven-days itinerary along the eastern coast of Sicily: the stages of the journey are wonderful places such as Messina (first and second day), Taormina (third day), Catania (fourth day), Etna (fifth day), Syracuse (sixth and seventh day).


3. Northwestern Sicily

Another seven-days itinerary, this time along the northwestern coast. And it is another journey that mixes nature and culture: Palermo (first day), Isola delle Femmine (second day), Castellammare del Golfo and San Vito lo Capo (third day), Erice (fourth day), Cefalù, (fifth day), Favignana (sixth day), Segesta (seventh day).


4. Spa holidays in Sicily

This Summer 2016 in Sicily could be a good occasion to live a journey between sea and wellness treatments. The recommended destinations for spa holidays in Sicily are three: Acireale (in the province of Catania), Sciacca (in the province of Agrigento) and Terme Vigliatore (in the province of Messina).

In addition to spa and wellness treatments, these three places are near the wonderful sea of Sicily and some of the most beautiful beaches of the island.


5. The islands of Sicily

Sicily is an island surrounded by other islands. Places such as Favignana, Lipari and Levanzo don’t need an introduction. In fact, Aeolian Islands and Aegadian Islands are some of the most beautiful Sicilian islands.
