Why go to Sicily

The ‘Crossroads of the Mediterranean’ has been conquered by several civilisations over the centuries – tactical location aside, no empire has been able to resist Sicily’s lemon-scented loveliness or sultry climate. Though today’s visitors thankfully come in peace, they’re similarly diverse: the island attracts sun-worshippers, foodies, hikers, history buffs, hipsters and families, all looking for a slice of Sicily to call their own. What’s more, the island is currently especially ripe for exploration thanks to restoration projects in its old cities and a cool new restaurant scene. Throw in regular (and cheap) all-inclusive deals to Sicily, and you have one cracker of a destination – perhaps it’s time you planned your own invasion?

Visit villages and volcanoes

Go on holiday to Sicily and you’ll see forested hills, olive groves, sandy coves and wetland nature reserves, as well as drowsy villages where you can get a feel for how the locals live.

Looking down on them all is Sicily’s unofficial emblem, and one of the world’s most active volcanoes: Mount Etna. Slightly to the north are the Aeolian Islands, home to black-sand beaches and fire-breathing Stromboli.

Explore vibrant cities

Near Etna is Taormina, the island’s most sophisticated town. Elegantly positioned above the Bay of Naxos, it’s a heady mix of five-star hotels, bougainvillea blooms, and a picture-perfect amphitheatre. Capital Palermo, in the northwest, is a rougher diamond but no less worth a visit while on holiday in Sicily.

Other enchanting towns include the toffee-coloured trio of Noto, Ragusa and Modica, beachside Cefalù, and Syracuse, where the sea-surrounded old quarter Ortygia is becoming increasingly trendy.

Feel the history

There are numerous archaeological treasures casually strewn across  Sicily. Highlights include Cefalù’s beautiful Norman cathedral, Palermo’s catacombs and the stellar Norman church in Monreale.

However, the headline acts are Sicily’s three Greek temple complexes – lonely hilltop Segesta, seaside Selinunte and Agrigento’s mammoth Valley of the Temples are all astounding.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
