Sicily » the sunny island in the Mediterranean Sea

"To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything."

That said the most important german poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe of Sicily.

The weather in Sicily is as varied as the landscapes of the Mediterranean island. Mild winters and long, hot summers characterise the climate of the coastal regions, while the interior is dominated by a continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold winters. At higher altitudes, snow can be expected in winter, and this is particularly present on Mount Etna. But the warm and dry climate brought Sicily the nickname "Island of the Sun". The good wind conditions at the western tip of Sicily, the Capo Boeo and on the south-east coast let surfers get their money's worth.

The travel season starts at Easter and usually ends at the end of October. But already in February/March a visit of the island is worthwhile, because beginning with the almond blossom, the landscape changes into a sea of blossoms, in which mimosa provide for yellow splashes of colour. While the meadows are covered with a sea of wild flowers, the pink and white flowers of the orange and cherry trees follow.

The temperatures at the beginning of the season are between 17 and 23°C, but in late spring already 24 - 27°C. In summer the mercury column climbs above 40°C and the sea also has bathtub temperature.
