Sun, sea and history in Sicily

Since ancient times, people have hankered to bask in the blazing sun and rugged countryside of Sicily, and it's certainly a fascinating and captivating place for a HomeAway vacation. In the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, drenched in fine weather and sharing latitudes with North Africa, the island has plenty to offer: rich local history, an earthy and tantalizing cuisine, sweeping landscapes and ornate architecture. With Sicily vacation rentals available across the island from Palermo to Catania, you can indulge in anything from a sophisticated night at the opera to a hike up Europe's largest volcano, or just spend your time sunning on one of the island's many incredible beaches.

Things to do

Wildlife in Sicily  

Hankering to get back to nature near your Sicily vacation rental? You can see soaring peregrine falcons and adorable loggerhead turtles at the Torre Salsa WWF nature reserve. With its sprawling hectares of coastline, it's the ideal place to be swept up in the wild romance of the island. Then, after that, you can perhaps stop by the picturesque community of Siculiana, where you can admire Baroque architecture and indulge in wine and antipasto. A major historic landmark is the Palazzo dei Normanni in Palermo, which was the seat of the Kings of Sicily.

Activities

Mediterranean flavor in Sicily 

Surrounded by the clear waters of the Mediterranean, Sicily not only has a wealth of culture to offer, but any number of water-based activities. Spend a day with a local guide touring the beaches, try your hand at snorkeling, sea-fishing or even scuba diving to explore a world of historic shipwrecks, vibrant corals and other-worldly sea slugs. Or, take the kids to any one the island's water parks for a day of splashy thrills and stomach-churning slide rides. Why not try a cookery course to learn some local dishes and sample the exquisite produce Sicily has to offer. 

Weather

Hazy summer nights in Sicily

Because of its location, Sicily enjoys a subtropical climate and a lot of sun for most of the year, reaching a peak mid-summer with long days stretching into the evenings, cooled by the breeze of the Mediterranean. It's ideal for al fresco dining with the family on the veranda of one of the Sicily vacation rentals. Spring and fall are more mild, but perhaps more manageable, and ideal for long treks in the mountains to take in the legendary landscape either blooming or changing with the season.

Natural features

Volcanic adventures in Sicily 

Sicily boasts a dramatic landscape with active and ancient volcanic peaks, verdant mountains and stunning beaches. It is home to Mount Etna, one of the world's largest active volcanos, which makes for an awe-inspiring day trip and is situated not too far from the equally incredible Alcantara Gorge with its lava stone walls, small lakes and waterfalls. The other-worldly landscapes continue at the infinitely Instagrammable Turkish Steps near Agrigento in the west of the island, where white cliffs meet crystal-blue waters. Follow in the footsteps of the fabled Saracen pirates who used to scale the 'steps' in search of treasure, and Sicily's riches.
