Spending a holiday in Sicily is more than just experiencing sea-tourism and relaxing in the many shores or at the beaches of its smaller surrounding islands. The region, in fact, is full of fascinating archaeological sites and Sicily events village festivals.
In addition to well-known tourist sites such as the cities of Taormina, Erice, Cefalù, San Vito Lo Capo, Monreale, Palermo, Noto or Siracusa, all of this region is rich in art, culture and traditions. Throughout the year, it also holds events and festivals concerning local products, or religious festivals, fairs and popular markets that make this region a must-see place even just for a short weekend trip.

Events for your holidays in Sicily
Let’s imagine for a moment a Christmas in Sicily: of course, to find some snow on the island you will need to move to the Etna volcano… but what about the living nativity, which every year attract thousands of tourists from all over the world?

So, eventually, you will agree that the only real Christmas is the one we celebrate here!
