When to go to Sicily

Sun-soaked Sicily has a lovely year-round climate and is a dream for a villa holiday. It’s got lovely beaches, plenty of island charm, and every season brings something a little different to show off the island at its best. Low season hits during late autumn and winter. It’s colder at this time of year, but is still relatively mild when compared to other European getaways. Winter is great for an authentic villa holiday – the island’s much more relaxed and tranquil without the crowds, and it’s a great time for heading out on wine tastings and touring the towns. The scenery is still lovely, too – just remember the extra layers so you can properly enjoy it! Sicily’s long, hot summer is when the island really hits its peak. This is prime time for sunbathers so beaches can get crammed from July to mid-September – restaurants, piazzas and the ancient sites will all be much busier, too. Sea waters are lovely for swimming at this time, but you’ll definitely be wanting to schedule in to those afternoon siestas as temperatures can easily hit the early 30s at the hottest part of the day.
