Timeless Island


Sicily has a Mediterranean climate, characterized by long hot summers, dry in the interior area, more ventilated near the sea. Spring and autumn are the best seasons for tourism. Catania holds the European record for sunshine. There's snow and rigorous temperature on the Mount Etna as usual in winter, as well as on the top of the Nebrodi and Madonie. Spring can be rainy or sunny with mild temperatures depending on the year. It's advisable wearing very light and comfortable clothes (shorts, sandals, t-shirts) in summer; but it's fine to wear jackets, wool pullovers and shoes suitable for cold temperatures if you visit the mountain areas in winter. Trousers and pullovers are sufficient to face the pleasant evenings in the open air in autumn and spring.
