As I love all things unique, I am having a look at unique things you can do in Sicily in Italy. It’s only a couple of hours on the plane from London so it’s a great destination to go with all the family. Here are some unique things you can do while you are there.
Go on a boat tour
Going on a boat ride is an essential for a fabulous holiday in the sun. And it’s a unique thing you can while you’re in Sicily. It means you get to see the top notch views in the area while soaking in the sun. You can even go on a tour where you can see some of the unique caves in Sicily. Research online for boat tours that you can go on while you’re on holiday.
Have a glass of wine in Taormina
The wine is one of the things which draws people to Sicily. They do many fruity white wines which are popular with tourists. Taormina is a popular destination in Sicily for its lovely bars, where you can soak in the atmosphere of the area and enjoy a drink or two. As well as being ideal for wine, Taormina has some churches which boast a wealth of history. There are also many markets where you can buy some great trinkets to take home with you.
Enjoy the culture in Palermo
Another unique thing you should do in Sicily is visit the capital of Palermo, which has some amazing culture and stores. It has a rich religious and artistic culture including norman palaces and churches that are a must-see. The area has a great port where you might find some celebrities boats docked on there. And the shops are also great to see. If you stay in a villa in Palermo, make sure you visit other unspoilt resorts of Sicily.
Enjoy some street food
When people think of Italy, one of the first things they talk about is the amazing Italian food. And quite rightly, as the food is fantastic and one of the favourite cuisines in the UK, which we enjoy when we are at home. While you’re in Sicily, you should visit restaurants for a bite to eat. But for a unique experience, you should try some street food. As discussed here, you will find some delicious treats on market stalls such as Arancini, which is a rice ball filled with meat and vegetables. You should also try Sfinciuni, which is a delicious Sicilian pizza which is filled with meat and cheese.
Visit the Valley of the Temples
Another unique thing you should do while you’re in Sicily is visit the enthralling archaeological site of The Valley of the Temples. Fans of history will love seeing the remains of the magnificent temples which were built back in the 6th century BC. There’s so much to see that you could spend two days there having a look at everything. It’s good for taking the kids too, so they can tell their friends about it when they get back to school.
Sicily is a fantastic place in Italy with so much to do and see.
