Sicily is a fascinating island, and has a great deal to be seen, explored and discovered. Certainly, with Mount Etna playing such a crucial part in the very psyche of the people and island, a visit is needed to this still active volcano, no matter what the time of year. With the use of a car, it is possible to drive around this natural monument, and at the same time visit the seventeenth century villages that seem somehow lost in time. Adrano and Bronte boast Norman castles, and of course, it wouldn’t be Italy without hundreds of Roman remains scattered all over the beautiful landscape.
With a Mediterranean climate well suited to grape growing and wine making, you can expect the temperatures to be much higher than those experienced in the UK at a similar time of year. The summer months are more popular though, and from May to September the weather is warmest. July and August are the hottest months, and temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius can be expected. Rainfall is fairly negligible during the summer, with almost three months receiving virtually none at all. October is the wettest month, with over 100mm falling. The coldest time of year is December and January, but even then, it is rare to see the temperature drop below 10 degrees Celsius during the day.
