Found this guide helpful

Sicily is a bit off the beaten track for most Americans. This means this lovely island is far less crowded than Venice or Tuscany, with plenty of attractions to explore and great food to enjoy. Sicily has everything - mountains, beaches, a volcano, Roman and Greek ruins and plenty of sunshine. There are many hidden treasures as well - which my guide will help you locate and explore. Great for couples or families both, Sicily is not to be missed if you want a tourist-free, unforgettable Italian vacation. And they truly have the best granita in the world! That alone is worth the visit.

iconlady's City Tips

  • Don't miss the olives in Castelvetrano. Stop in any grocery store deli section and buy a container to eat with lunch.
  • To best explore Sicily, rent a car. It is worth the cost. There is no better way to get across the island and explore its nooks and crannies without a vehicle to take you there.
  • Stock up on Modica chocolate. This unusual chocolate, made locally for hundreds of years with no milk and minimal sugar, cannot be found anywhere else. This is the real deal!
  • Don't miss the castle at Donnafugata. After touring the grounds, cool off with a granita. Walk the winding dirt road through the Sicilian countryside to the nearby Catacombs
  • Stay just a few steps from the beach at Suite Beach B & B. Walk the streets of nearby, downtown Marsala at night, with its small, gem of medieval buildings.
  • For a more relaxing and genuine Sicilian experience, try staying in an agriturismo. Get a quiet nights rest, go for a swim in the pool and enjoy homemade, delicious food.
  • Keep your eyes out for the remains of WWII pillboxes everywhere in Sicily, especially along the coastal areas, for a bit of historical interest.
  • Be sure to catch the bus at Segesta which will take you from the Temple to the theater and ruins. Otherwise, you will have hellishly long, hot walk. Tickets available onsite
  • Explore the medieval streets and incredible views of Trapani from the town of Erice, 750 m above sea level.
  • Don't miss purchasing ceramics in the town of Caltagirone. The town has been famous for its pottery for centuries.
  • Spend a morning exploring the extraordinary Roman mosaics at the Villa Romana del Casale
  • Visit some of the secluded beaches and nature reserves south of Scicli, near the Ragusa Marina.
  • Get lost in the outdoor garden maze at Donnafugata Castle. It took us awhile to find our way out. Bring plenty of water!
  • Don't miss the Parco Naturale della Madonie. Explore the small towns in the mountains - you may come upon an unexpected outdoor food market, like we did in Petralia Soprana.

    Wonderful agriturismo near Cefalu, located in a protected, archaeological park. Beautiful grounds and comfortable rooms. We stayed her with out teenage son, so our room had a third bed. We had one of our most memorable dinners during our trip here. The husband and wife team cooked a delicious meal on their veranda overlooking their olive trees consisting of homemade breads and pork loin cooked on the grill with herbs. Breakfast was delicious as well. Highly recommend.

    Lovely agriturismo just outside Mount Etna National Park. Lovingly restored over many years by the family who runs the hotel. When we arrived, we were offered drinks and delicious homemade cake and cookies. Gorgeous views of the volcano and a large pool to cool off in. There aren't many choices nearby for dinner, but I highly recommend eating at the hotel anyway because the food was excellent. Very quiet, comfortable room.

    Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Amid all the pasta and pizza, it is nice to add a little red meat to your diet. However, the pasta at this establishment is wonderful as well. The Antipasto plate with Sicilian specialties was delicious and large enough to feed two. The salads looked wonderful, especially the green salad with oranges. My husband had the steak with mushroom sauce and I had the pasta with pesto and tomatoes - both were wonderful. The restaurant is centrally located off Via Aetnea, the main street in the old town of Agrigento. Service was very good and friendly. If you are stopping over in Agrigento after a tiring day of touring the Valley of the Temples, this restaurant is an excellent choice for a meal.

    The only real reason people tend to stay overnight in Agrigento is to see the Valley of the Temples. Agrigento is not a particularly lovely city. We have previously stayed in Pompeii twice - another city catering to tourists coming to see a famous site - and really enjoyed our stay. I can say that Agrigento has very little of the charm, restaurants or attractions that we found in Pompeii. After an exhausting day visiting the temples, we stayed one night at Camere a Sud, which was entirely sufficient. It is located on a small alley off the main street (Via Etnea). You can drive on this street between certain hours. Thereafter, you can drive only for 15-20 minutes with the parking pass that Elvira will send you when you make your reservation. This is sufficient for finding the hotel and dropping of your bags. The room was nicely decorated and decently sized. It had a small balcony over-looking the main street in town (the only street in the city with even a small bit of charm). The street is thankfully very quiet at night, but does become noisy around 7:30 am, so don't expect to sleep in (or bring ear plugs). We were able to access WIFI from our room, but I can't say whether the other rooms had equal access, as our room was located close to the lobby. There is a computer in the lobby for general use (though I don't find this particularly convenient or inviting. I generally want privacy when accessing my email, etc.). There are enough decent restaurants around the hotel; Naif was wonderful for dinner and is located just a 5 minute walk down Via Etnea. Literally across the street from Camere a Sud is an excellent coffee bar/gelateria with the best almond granita I had in all of Sicily. The parking was a challenge, so just be prepared to drop you bags at the hotel and drive about a mile or so away for the parking, then walk back to the hotel. My only two complaints about the hotel: the incredibly small shower and the poor breakfast. You literally cannot move inside that shower - and I am a very small person. Washing my hair inside that confined space was a real challenge. I suggested that my husband - a much large individual than me - not even attempt it. Breakfast was the worst we have had in Sicily thus far. Sliced salami and cheese from a package and pastries spread with Nutella. The cappuccino arrived lukewarm. When I asked, they were kind enough to make another much hotter. But after coming from a hotel in Scicli (Novecento) that had the largest and most delicious breakfast we had in all of Sicily, breakfast at Camere a Sud was a real disappointment. One last thing. There is not always someone at the hotel manning the front desk. You do need to telephone them in the morning and let them know when you expect to arrive. For us, this was difficult, as I did not really know how long we would be at the Temples, so I gave them a range (3-5 pm). Also, when we did arrive, Elvira was not there, but there was another lady manning the desk whom my husband felt was probably the grumpiest person in all of Sicily (she certainly did not break a smile). While efficiency is essential, it is also nice to have a warm, friendly greeting upon arrival. Some of the staff at the hotel may need to work on their pleasantries a bit

    Sightseeing Tours

    iconlady Says:

    Please note that I may be the only traveler who has given this tour a bad review. I think a LOT depends on who you get as a tour guide. We have gone on a number of tours with "Context Travel" in Rome and Naples and have loved every single tour we have had with their archaeologists. They recommended Passage to Sicily for our trip to Sicily. We booked the Valley of the Temples tour in Agrigento for the three of us (including our thirteen year old son). Since the Context tours are all around 3-4 hours, we mistakenly believed this tour was also around that length. It was, however, much longer, and is advertised as a 6 1/2 hour tour. Guess I should have more carefully read the fine print. Instead of our tour beginning at the site first thing in the morning when it is much cooler, we spent about 2 hours touring the Regional Museum first (as this was what the tour guide had planned)t. This was a real mistake. By the time we reached the site, it was already lunch time and blazing hot - easily over 100 degrees. In my opinion, we spent twice as long at the museum as we needed to or had an interest in. A one hour tour at the museum AFTER we saw the site of the Temples would have been much more desirable. I realize that our tour guide, Valentine, had an immense amount of experience as an archaeologist, but this does not necessarily make for an engaging tour guide. Moreover, I learned about her background from the company website. She told us nothing about herself and asked nothing about us. She did not ask what we were interested in seeing or how we would like the tour structured. I have no idea if this was because her command of English was limited or she just didn't even think to ask a single question (ie, how long are you in Sicily? Where do you come from? etc.) In our recent tour of underground Rome with Context (which was wonderful and I highly recommend with Patrizia), we were asked which of the three sites we wanted to focus on and whether we wanted to see 1, 2 or 3 of those sites. Thus, we helped create our own tour based on our interests and stamina. Nothing so personal and necessary occurred on this tour of Agrigento. And the tour of the site is brutal - it takes about 3-4 hours with the guide. After the museum, this was just too much for us. Even our son, who is only 13 and in good shape, was absolutely exhausted. We never stopped for lunch and the tour did not end until close to 4 pm. It started at 10 am. We should have been told to bring sandwiches or some kind of food. According to the app on our phone, we walked nearly 7 miles through the museum and site. I think the worst aspect of this tour was the fact that my son and I felt that the tour guide excluded us. She did not make eye contact with us from the moment the tour began and did not ask if we had any questions. We felt completely disengaged. Perhaps the guide felt we were not interested in the site but the reality was that she failed utterly to engage us in any way. When she showed pictures of certain things on her IPAD, she directly it only to my husband. Neither my son or I could actually see what was on the IPAD. I think you all get the point. Again, I am sure after reading the other reviews that the enjoyment of the tours is highly dependent on the guide you end up with. Just be aware that, in our opinion, this tour had real problems.

    Erice is certainly worth a visit, with its medieval charm and stunning views. While touring Erice, we stopped for lunch at La Prima Dea and were impressed with the food. The bread brought to the table to begin the meal was delicious - the best we have had in Sicily thus far. The pasta with Trapanese pesto (almonds, basil, tomatoes) was very good, as was the grilled vegetable side dish (contorni). Very good, attentive service from the staff. The tables are set above the street with open windows looking out. I would highly recommend this restaurant, with only two complaints - they don't take credit cards (so come with sufficient cash) and they have a very high table charge (three Euros a person, which is highway robbery!)

    What can one say? Not to be missed. One of our favorite excursions in Sicily. The tour in the buses that take you up the mountain is well worth the money. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly (and spoke English).

    • The drive to the top of the mountain takes nearly an hour. Allot enough time.

    Spectacularly preserved Greek temples. While you don't want to miss this site, make sure to see it early in the morning or later in the afternoon. Bring plenty of water and even a lunch, as services here are limited. There is quite extensive walking between the temples, so if you have difficulty getting around, this could be a problem. During the heat of the afternoon, I recommend seeing the nearby archaeological museum with finds from the site.

    Don't miss this dessert/coffee bar. It had the best granita I had in all of Sicily - and that is really saying something! The almond granita was delicious and included a hint of honey.

    This little cafe is located in the charming old town of Marsala. My husband enjoyed his pasta dish with tomato sauce and I absolutely loved my vegetable & cheese platter. Night after night of pizza or pasta can wear on your digestion. It was so refreshing to finally avoid the carbs and have a platter of freshly grilled vegetables and local cheeses. This cafe has an excellent selection of different platters - vegetables, cheese, salami, and a mixture of all of these. Service was good as well.

    • Don't miss the old town of Marsala. Very few tourists visit. The place is filled with locals and is small, beautiful, and easy to walk.
