VISIT SICILY: OUR ADVICE

 

Is it possible to visit Sicily in three days?

Sicily is one of the gems of Italy and it is possible to arrive in just one hour by plane, but it is not possible to visit the whole island in 3 days. The first day you can visit the picturesque city of Palermo and choose between places of interest such as the Zisa Castle, the Basilica of Monreale Complex, the Salinas Museum and, if you like archeology, the Archaeological Museum Pietro Griffo.
The second day you can rent a car and within two hours you will reach Agrigento, where you can explore the Valley of the Temples and Luigi Pirandello's house.
The third day, relax on one of the beautiful beaches near Palermo. With little time available, this is just a sample of the itinerary for you to come back!

Which is the best period to visit Sicily?

Sicily can be visited throughout the year, May, June and September are good months to go, but if you do not like large crowds, avoid the month of August! Many inhabitants of Sicily say they have only two seasons: summer that lasts 9 months and winter that lasts the other 3 months of the year. Its mild climate will allow you to visit it with tranquility, taking advantage not only of the sea but also of the beautiful Sicilian cities, museums and churches.

Which are the typical dishes of Sicily?

The Sicilian gastronomic tradition is among the richest in Italy and thanks to the different cultures that have settled on the island over the centuries, it has a complex cuisine of Mediterranean flavors with a unique balance between sea and land.
You can not leave Sicily without having tried the main culinary specialties of the island such as Cannolo, Cassata, Arancino, la Pasta alla Norma, Caponata, Pasta with Sardines, Almond Paste among others.
