Which area of Sicily should I stay in?
Most of the popular tourist attractions are located on the coastline, the capital Palermo is a large city filled with narrow Medieval streets and Baroque churches. For a typical family beach resort head to Cefalu it has a beautiful long golden stretch of sand overlooked by a clifftop castle surrounded by cobbled streets.
Travel further down the coast and you cannot fail to be charmed by the hilltop town of Taormina relax in its cafes and restaurants dotted amongst hidden gardens, this is very popular with visitors to Sicily. From here a visit to the impressive Mt Etna, Europe’s highest volcano is a must.
In the south is Siracusa, once of great significance to the Ancient Greeks. Here and the surrounding areas are filled with Greek temples and ruins.
