Must-do & Must-see – our suggestions

Must-do

  • Sicily is dotted with small islands all around its coastline. Some are very popular with tourists, while others are a little more secret. Favignana, off the coast of Trapani, is part of the Aegadian Islands and is a delightful change of scenery. With its unsuspected coves and translucent waters, it has an other-worldly feeling. Just hop on the ferry to get there and then pick up a bike, so you can take the time to stop wherever you like and savour the moment. 

    Arancini are a delicious  food whose shape is reminiscent of little oranges. The traditional version of this fried rice ball is topped with tomato sauce and minced meat. It's a real institution in Sicily! You can eat it whenever you like - often standing up in the street, with your hands! These cheap and delicious snacks are usually homemade by expert hands.

 

Must-see

  • Sicily is home to some magical places where, for a moment, time seems to stand still... The Marsala saltworks are one of them! As night falls, the horizon lights up in an extraordinary range of colours. Enjoy the unique spectacle of pink flamingos resting on the water in front of white salt dunes and still-functioning windmills. It's a truly breathtaking sunset!

    The Scala dei Turchi (Stairway of the Turks) is a true miracle of nature, formed by erosion and the wind, which has sculpted remarkable sinuous curves into a white limestone cliff. This impressive, immaculate rock, which takes the form of a staircase with endless steps, contrasts with the turquoise blue of the sea.

    Taormina's ancient theatre has been used for performances since Greek times. This exceptional venue with its impeccable acoustics is still used as a stage for plays, concerts and even ballets. Admire the spectacle of nature and the grandeur of the art under the starry Sicilian sky, with a magical view of Mount Etna in the background.

  • The poet Pindare said that Agrigento was ‘the most beautiful town ever built by man’. Visit the Valley of the Temples (one of the best-preserved sites in the world).

    Agrigento is known throughout the world for its magnificent Valley of the Temples and the sacred area of ancient Akragas, one of the largest colonies of Magna Graecia. The Valley of the Temples includes some wonderful remnants from the ancient world: the Temple of Hercules, the majestic Temple of Concordia (one of the best-preserved temples in the Greek world), the unfinished Temple of Olympian Zeus – the largest Doric construction in the western world – the Temple of Hera Lacinia and the extensive Hellenic and Roman district where it’s possible to see dwellings and houses with Hellenic-style patios with their well-preserved coloured mosaics and elegant mural paintings. These monuments all date from the 5th century B.C. In addition to quintessential archaeological treasures, the National Archaeology Museum also houses the famous Ephebos, an original Greek statue from 470 B.C. The 11th-century cathedral and the San Spiritu monastery, with its interior decorated in wonderful Baroque stucco, are the most significant monuments from the modern era.

  • Called ‘Mongibello’, or ‘Gebel’ by the Arabs (meaning ‘mountain’), the highest volcano in Europe (3,345 m) is still active. It is a magnificent natural spectacle and source of great pride to the Sicilians. Continuation towards Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, with a visit to its Greco-Roman theatre offering you a sumptuous view of the coast and Etna.

    You will cross the hinterland of Sicily before arriving at Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe, which is still active. This pride of the Sicilian people is a magnificent natural spectacle. The bus takes you to an altitude of 1,900 m. Afterwards, you will have 2 to 3 hours of free time to climb by cable-car up to the highest point at 3,300 m, if you wish. Not included in the price.
    Followed by departure to Taormina, a wonderful town at the foot of Etna with a splendid view of the whole bay. Free time to visit the town and do some shopping. Don’t forget to visit the famous Greco-Roman theatre! Return via Messina.

  • Discover the island's hinterland, full of typical villages and diverse nature, and try Sicilian specialities.

  • You'll leave in the morning towards Milazzo to take the boat to Lipari, visit the island, then continue on to Vulcano, one of the most interesting islands on the Aeolian archipelago. Visit to archaeological sites and bathing on the black beach.

    The Aeolian Islands (or Lipari) are located off the north-east coast of Sicily. Their name comes from Aeolus, the god of wind. Seven of the islands are inhabited: Vulcano, Lipari, Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi, Panarea and Stromboli.
    Vulcano, the closest to Sicily, has a surface area of 20 km² and is made up of three volcanoes. The island is renowned for its geological and volcanic beauty.
    Milazo is a port on the north-east coast of Sicily and is reached in one hour by road. From there you will board a boat to Vulcano. The crossing takes approximately 1 hour 30 min.
    The walk to the Large Crater (386 m) is very interesting, as is the tour of the island by boat (additional charge). However, if perhaps you prefer to take sulphur baths and enjoy a swim in water warmed by underwater springs, then a pleasant day spent in Vulcano offers just that.

  • Depart for Monreale, near Palermo, visit to the 12th-century Norman cathedral, with its perfectly preserved mosaics, and the Benedictine monastery. Free time in the town for a stroll or a coffee in one of the town squares, and perhaps the option of visiting one of the gardens with unobstructed views of the valley of Conca d’Oro. Continue to Palermo, capital of the island located at the foot of Mont Pellegrino, to discover the treasures of this wonderful city.

    Morning visit to Monreale, a marvellous town 8 km from Palermo on Monte Caputo. You will visit the magnificent cathedral there that is decorated with more than 6,000 m² of golden mosaics. Afterwards, there will be free time to enjoy a quintessential Italian coffee, an optional visit, or a walk through the gardens of the town. Afterwards, departure for Palermo, where you will have a guided tour of the city through its historic centre (Avenue de la Libertà, Massimo and Garibaldi Theatre, les Quattre Canti). On foot, you will visit the San Giovanni degli Eremiti church built on the remnants of an Arab mosque, the Cappella Palatina, a wonderful example of Arab-Byzantine style, and the magnificent Arab-Norman cathedral in Palermo. Free time for lunch and shopping. Optional visit to the Capuchin Catacombs with 8,000 mummified remains, including the exceptionally well-preserved mummy of a child who died in 1920, Rosalia Lombardo.

  • The city is a very important archaeological site, with ruins of monuments, artworks and statues that offer a complete picture of its history. Founded in the 8th century BC on the island of Ortigia, Syracuse very quickly became an important city, as evidenced by remnants from the Greek and Roman periods. After the Roman occupation, the city fell into decline. Visit the Fountain of Aretusa, the cathedral, the archaeological site of Neopolis with its latomies (quarries used as prisons), the famous grotto known as the "Ear of Dionysus", the Greek theatre and the Roman amphitheatre.
    Head to Noto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most beautiful towns in Sicily. This tourist destination is famous for its historical and Baroque architecture. Return in the late afternoon.

  • Discover the island's hinterland, full of typical villages and diverse nature, and try Sicilian specialities.
