Head to Sicily for the best in last minute life

Sicily is Italy's pride and joy, and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Few destinations are as worth of a spontaneous escape as here, where you can be off the plane with arancini in one hand and a glass of red in the other in next to no time.

History speaks in a thousand voices in Cefalu, the coastal town tucked at the base of the island's mountain ranges. It's here that medieval buildings and classic, narrow Italian houses make the streets a winding maze of opportunity. The real architectural treats are in the hillside coastal town of Castelmola though, with Mount Etna looming on one side and the vastness of the sea glistening on the other. Beach days here are best spent with a healthy layer of sunscreen, a cocktail in hand and not a care in the world.

The best time of year to book your last minute holiday

Sicily, like many destinations, experiences high and low seasons of tourism traffic. High season matches spring and summer, so expect the most bustle and activity around April through to September. Temperatures are high all year round though, so don't be shy in going during low season in search of some sunshine when prices take a dip. Either way, you'll be saving by booking last minute, which generally means anywhere before eight week's in advance of the departure date. It definitely pays to be spontaneous.

Other popular holidays in Italy

Italy is timeless, and if you're interested in exploring its other famous island, check out Sardinia, where folklore and tradition reigns supreme. You could also follow the footsteps of da Vinci and the Medicis in Tuscany, or instead trade the beach for a boat trip over the shimmering Italian Lakes. That said, keep Sicily in mind as you weigh your options. To help you out, we've got a Sicily travel guide waiting for you, together with our top hotels for last minute stays listed below.
