What is the best time of the year to visit Sicily?

To give you a short answer: Sicily has perfect weather all year around, which makes traveling around the island great in any season.

The Sicilian summer is usually from May to October, which means that all these 6 months of the year are rather warm and perfect for all the summer activities. April and November are both nice and warm, you might as well go swimming in the sea, but the air temperatures will be a bit lower and it can rain more often than in the summer months. December, January and February are winter months, usually with December still warm enough to go around with a light jacket and January-Febraury are colder with more rain.

  1. I would love a book on Inside Sicily! Also….. do do you have the name of a private driver? Thank you! Katie Howard

    • Hi Katie, there’s “Palermo Transfer Limousine”. They have all sorts of cars, and drive everywhere in and also out of Sicily. Google their name for all the contacts.

    • In late November winter arrives, the temperatures will go lower and it can rain more often. But at the same time there are always some sunny days and it can be wonderful to visit the cities and towns. Don’t miss out Palermo!
