3 Good Reasons to Stay in Sicily for Your Next Holiday

If you are looking for an exotic holiday destination to enjoy with your family or spend some time on your own, relax and unwind with nature, Sicily is worth considering! With its beautiful eastern coast, Sicily is undoubtedly one of the finest holiday destinations in the whole Mediterranean. So if you are thinking of visiting this fantastic island, why not stay in Sicily but book accommodation at one of the most exclusive villas in Sicily instead of staying at an accommodation located in one of the tourist areas.

Sicily is a large area with rough terrain, so this has led to a well-developed transportation system. Palermo, the capital of Sicily, is just 90 kilometers from Trapani. Many tourist buses run from Palermo to Trapani from early morning to late night. Therefore it is easy for you to go anywhere you want in Sicily.

1.Sicily Foods

Sicily is home to incredible food, and some of Europe's best discoveries await those who spend their holiday there.

Pasta Alla Norma

If you are visiting Italy for your next holiday, I'm sure the food is one of the reasons to stay in Sicily for your next holiday. Staying here will allow you to sample some of the most delicious foods the country has to offer. One of the most famous Italian foods is Pasta Alla Norma, which comes after its origins.

Arancine, Cannoli

What about starting with Arancine, a deep-fried rice ball used to fill up hungry people at lunchtime. The traditional recipe of Arancine contains ground beef, onions with peas, and mozzarella cheese stuffed into the center then covered with deep-fried rice. Variations are all over Sicily, but the essential elements are still there. It seems only natural after eating Arancine for lunch that you have to have dessert.

Someone put ice cream inside a dough filled with nuts, sprinkled powdered sugar on, and called it Cannoli. I would go for the giant Cannoli!


If you look at the ingredients that make up a Cassata, you would probably never recognize it as the Sicilian dessert it is. The cream filling contains Ricotta Bianca, sugar, and candied fruit to sweeten it. And the outer coating is made of almonds. The Sicilians love their almonds.

Caponata, Pizza, Wine

There is no doubt that Sicilian cuisine has a special place in the world of cooking. Because of its Mediterranean climate, Sicily has produced some of the most delicious foods that have become famous. Try to find caponata, Sicilian-style eggplant salad, in an Italian cuisine restaurant on any menu.

The food alone is reason enough. Italy has always been synonymous with pizza, pasta, wine, cheese, fried foods, and desserts. Nothing beats the pleasures of them when in Sicily.

2.Sicily Beaches

Sicily is genuinely a fantastic place on earth with some truly pristine beaches full of history and culture. The magnificent stretch of coastline leading up to Isola Bella on the west coast belongs to Termini Imerese, boasting another great beach named Mondello.

Beaches are one of the reasons for people to visit Sicily. Many of them include Taormina and its Isola Bella, Cefalù and Mondello. For Taormina, you need to drive by car, except Isola Bell, which you can reach by ferry-boat or hydrofoil. Mondello beach is north of Sicily, close to Palermo. But there are many different beaches located on the coast of Sicily; it has over 1,100km, including the very long sandy beach at the South-West coast called "Spiaggia Grande" in Giardini-Naxos.
