When to go.

Sicily’s hottest months are July and August when temperatures regularly reach 30 plus degrees. If you are planning on doing a lot of siteseeing it is worth factoring the temperature in. The summer months are ideal if you want to relax and soak up the sun.

Spring and Autumn months are a little cooler and great for seeing the sites. Rainfall is more likely around October to November. Also bear in mind that during the cooler months, if you are planning a visit to Mount Etna, there may by lying snow during these months.




Winter is the coolest time of the year and great for seeing the sites. If you are up for it, Mount Enta has it’s own ski slope. Something different to tell the folks back home.
