You can book hotels in Sicily in the island's exciting cities, towns and coastal resorts as well as in rural beauty spots...
Sicily hasn't really gone down the road of purpose-built tourist resorts; in Sicily, you stay in areas that feel genuine and authentic... because they are!
You'll find budget hotels and B&Bs in charming old houses, luxury hotels on the outskirts of towns and villages that boast every amenity you can possibly desire during your stay. Some of the finest five-star hotels ooze history and charm, though there are a few new hotels in Sicily with a more modern take on things. Many hotels offer accommodation on a half-board basis.
While the majority of hotels are locally owned and managed, there are several well-known brands on the island such as Hilton, NH Hoteles, Best Western, Orient-Express, Charme & Relax and AMT.
Stay in the beach resorts of Giardini Naxos, Cefalu, Mortelle or Mondello, or go for big-town thrills by booking hotels in Palermo, Catania hotels or Trapani hotels. Taormina, which has ancient roots, is another popular coastal resort.
Winters are cooler and experience more rain than spring, summer and autumn, though the island remains in business all year. You will get cheaper hotel prices during winter.
