Are holidays in the air? Sicily is ready for summer season and many of the Sicilian Secrets itineraries have already started. But both in April and May, Dimensione Sicilia proposes some tours to fully experience this destination. There are also some gems to make your stay unique and flexible. Grab your suitcase…and go!
The season of Dimensione Sicilia has already started in MarchMarch. But spring still keeps some surprises to reach the most magical places on the island, those that should be experienced especially in summer. Swimsuit, camera and above all a great desire to have fun and know something new: here are the essential things to put in the bag for your next Sicilian Secrets.
For those who love the sea
You say Sicily…you say sea! During summer months, the island becomes a paradise for all those who love to spend time on the beach or swimming in the crystal clear waters, and Dimensione Sicilia has also thought of them.
The Aeolian Islands
The tour of Sicily and the Aeolian Islands in 9 days started on April 12th (and will continue until October), and every Tuesday takes place from Palermo to the most iconic Sicilian cities such as Monreale with their famous Cathedral, Cefalù, Taormina and Catania. Then it continues towards the Sicilian archipelago declared a UNESCO heritage site. We will visit Lipari and Salina, where – for example – we will discover the location of the film “The Postman” in the beautiful bay of Pollara. And then we will see Panarea to explore the prehistoric village of Capo Milazzese and the so-called Grotta degli Innamorati, and finally Stromboli, the majestic volcano that the locals call ‘Iddu’. At sunset you can admire the Sciara del fuoco off the coast: when the night comes, the sky will be illuminated only by stars and crackling lapilli.
The Aegadian Islands
Another itinerary by Sicilian Secrets is the tour that will be launched on May 28th to Sicily and the Aegadian Islands. 10 days departing from Catania, passing through the beautiful Syracuse, Noto, Ragusa Ibla and Modica with their baroque buildings, stopping in Piazza Armerina for an immersion in the art of mosaics. It goes on with Agrigento, Marsala and the salt pans, Monreale and Palermo. Then travellers will embark in Trapani to reach Favignana. This island is the ‘butterfly’ of the archipelago and during the trip we will visit Cala Rossa, Cala Azzurra and other suggestive places. It goes without saying that there is time to enjoy this clear and blue sea, with the opportunity of a boat trip (optional) to Levanzo.
Islands, the Eden of Sicily
In addition to the two Aeolian and Aegadian tours, Dimensione Sicilia expands their offer with the other smaller Sicilian islands. They are natural theaters with a timeless charm that have seduced poets, film directors and writers. Perfect background for unforgettable photographic shots, they show the wildest side of Sicily. Therefore, why not Ustica, Lampedusa or Pantelleria as your summer destination? Here the breathtaking landscapes and the hospitality of the people will warm your heart.
Top idea for 2022 is the 8 days / 7 nights gulet cruise boarding in Milazzo from June 4th to September 24th (every Saturday). You will sail around the Aeolian Islands aboard an elegant, comfortable and spacious wooden boat accompanied by an excellent crew: this is an unmissable adventure for those with a passion for the sea.
