    Drive Italy; 6 must see spots in Sicily!

    For a small island, Sicily sure does pack a punch! The best way to get around is to book a Italy car hire and make sure you get to all of the best spots.

    We have picked our favourite 6 to help you with your itinerary planning:

    1 – Mount Etna

    Skiing in winter and hiking in summer, this famous mountain is the top tourist pick all year round. This magnificent volcano is one of the tallest in Europe and also one of the most active in the world!

    Just a quick tip, before you head up the mountain,check with the local weather reports and also the eruption conditions.

    Quattro Canti2- Quattro Canti

    The beautiful square in Palermo is framed by four Baroque buildings and is the point in which two of the main streets in Palermo cross. The buildings feature four statues, representing the four seasons, the four Spanish Kings of Sicily and the patronesses of Palermo.



     

    Teatro Greco di Taormina3 – Ancient theatre of Taormina

    Built in the third century, this Greek theatre is a favourite stop for tourists visiting Sicily. Beautifully preserved, the theatre still holds concerts and performances along the eastern shores of the island. From the theatre you can enjoy the breathtaking scenes of Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea.



     

    Orto botanico di Palermo4 – Orto botanico di Palermo

    Nestled in the city of Palermo, the lush green gardens are a perfect place to enjoy and appreciate nature. The gardens feature an aquarium, greenhouses and a herbarium, all of which were created to study and help preserve plants and trees.

    The beautiful gardens are one of the oldest centres for botanical studies in the Mediterranean.

     

    Piazza Armerina5 – Piazza Armerina

    Tucked away in Sicily’s center is the historic town of Pizza Armerina. The beautiful old buildings and windy cobbled street transport you back as early as the 10th century. Most of the town has been perfectly preserved; you may just think you are back in Roman times! The town’s main attraction is the Villa Romana del Casale, a historic Roman complex. It is open to tourist from around 10am, we recommend getting there early as there is lots to explore.

     

    Taormina6 – Taormina

    This glitzy and glamorous town is packed full of bars, restaurants and great shopping. This is the islands most modern resort; however it also has historic treats just waiting to be explored. The Greek Theatre has a backdrop to the sea and in the distance views of Mt. Etna. Although it is too high to have its own beaches, below is the beautiful bay of Isola Bella, a perfect place to soak up the Mediterranean sun
