Sicily’s southerly position in the Mediterranean means it enjoys balmy temperatures from May through to September, making it a fantastic family holiday option not just for the school summer holidays but also May half term. And it’s more than just beaches too, as the island boasts plenty of culture in the form of Greek and Roman ruins as well as the potential for more adventurous activities. So if the children, and you, need more than just beaches to keep you entertained on holiday, a family holiday to Sicily might just be the perfect option.
The beautiful Mediterranean coastline is certainly not to be
sniffed at though and we can recommend some brilliant
family-friendly hotels right on the beach to make the most of it.
If you've got more curious youngsters in tow, especially those with
an interest in history, we can recommend some fantastic sites that
will bring Greek and Roman history to life, such as the UNESCO
World Heritage Site the Valley of the Temples or the ancient Greek
amphitheatre at Syracuse.
If it's a touch of adventure you are after on your Sicilian
family holiday, we can arrange hiking adventures through Etna
National Park (or trips up the cable car if little legs won't
manage the walk) to see the summit of the volcano, or trips to
explore Monti Rossi Adventure Park, with adventure trails suitable
for all ages.
Sicily is a fun island for a family road trip, as it's small
enough that you won't spend hours on end each day stuck in the car
listening to cries of 'are we nearly there yet?' from the back
seats. This way you can explore the island at your own pace and
spend time both inland taking in some culture and on the coast
soaking up some sun.
Our Italy experts know all the best places on the island to stay
and visit as a family, so are on hand to start planning your
tailor-made Sicily family holiday today.
