The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily holidays give tourists the chance to enjoy stunning surroundings and cultured towns, all accompanied by an ideal climate.
Sitting on the toe of Italy's boot, Sicily is a famously beautiful destination that oozes romance around the natural surroundings of this laidback island. Wherever you choose to stay on your holiday to Sicily, you can be sure that you'll experience phenomenal views across breath-taking landscapes.
There is substance to the beauty of Sicily too with historical landmarks, a large active volcano and miles of vineyards, olive groves and lemon trees.
While families and groups can all appreciate the beauty of Sicily, it is couples who will truly benefit from a getaway here. The make-up of each town lends itself to slow walks through the streets and there are hundreds of romantic restaurants to dine at along the way.
At 1,800 feet above sea level, this mountainside town is perfectly placed to provide views of the Ionian Sea and the next door town of Taormina just below. Eating at a terraced restaurant and looking out onto the Sicilian landscape is a treat for all the senses.
Beaches can be easily accessed at the bottom of the cliffs by Taormina while there are historical ruins and old castles to climb up by Castelmola.
By night there are many peaceful bars and elegant restaurants to settle into in Castelmola and Taormina has a larger selection of livelier venues. Modern clubs are found in old buildings along the Corso Umberto I.
A traditional town that is placed by an 8km beach, Cefalu is an ideal resort to relax in underneath the Mediterranean sunshine. The long coastline is filled with attractions, bars and restaurants while the narrow winding roads lead towards the old quarter part of the northern town.
Lungomare Beach is the 8km stretch where many choose to lie down and tan themselves while others walk past the many sights seen next to the sands. The roads running adjacent to the beach offer plenty of food and drinks as well as some exciting nightlife areas.
Shopping and dining is readily available here too with many businesses found along the main street of Corso Ruggero.
Mediterranean temperatures keep Sicily delightfully hot for more than six months of the year. The height of summer in July and August sees day time averages reach 30C while the nights are likely to stay above 20C.
Though the summers get busy with higher visitor numbers, the mellow lifestyle of Sicilians ensures that things never get too hectic. Cefalu's beach has 8km of space to choose from too so you're unlikely to find this sunbathing hotspot to be too crowded.
Mount Etna can be seen from almost any town and city in Sardinia and you can take a trip up the monstrous mountain. From the top of Europe's largest active Volcano, the views are sensational and it's a very refreshing day out, as long as you ignore the rumblings beneath the surface.
The capital of Sicily is noted for its long history, stunning architecture and delicious food. It is easy to reach Palermo thanks to the train that runs along the northern coast. It costs just €6 to make the hour ride from Cefalu to Palermo.
