There are a range of activities to be enjoyed during your holiday in Sant Alessio Siculo. Being a coastal town, it goes without saying that many of the activities on offer revolve around this fact. Swimming, snorkelling, diving, canoeing and windsurfing can all be tried, and if this seems too much, there is always good old fashioned sunbathing! If you are visiting during the winter months, then it is possible to ski on nearby Mount Etna. In fact, on outstanding winter days, it is possible to ski during the morning and take a dip in the ocean in the afternoon.
Sant Alessio Siculo has an interesting castle which dominates the village, and this is well worth visiting; as are some of the splendid restaurants serving local dishes. If you wish to explore farther afield, then a rental car is to be recommended. With this, the island opens up, and one of the first places to be visited should be Mount Etna. It is possible to drive around it, and by doing this, you will also discover quaint seventeenth century villages that seem to have stood still in time. Sicily also has many vineyards, and a visit to one or more of these will increase your knowledge of how wine is produced, and hopefully enable you to discover a favourite new drink. The island is also home to many Roman ruins and remains, far too numerous to mention here.
One of the most important parts of a holiday in Sant Alessio Siculo will be the weather. You may be pleased to know that the climate is a Mediterranean one, with warm summers and mild winters. July and August are the hottest months, and 30 degrees Celsius or more is not an uncommon temperature to be reached during the day. Even at night, the temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees at this time of year. The winter temperature range is between 10 and 14 degrees Celsius. Rain is not a major feature at any time of year, and almost non-existent during the summer.
The airport at Catania (CTA) is a large, busy international one, and takes in flights from most major European cities. Connections with the United Kingdom come courtesy of British Airways, who fly out of London Gatwick (LGW), and Thompson Airways who fly from Manchester (MAN). The island does have several other airports, most of which are serviced by the ‘no frills’ airlines.
