Things to do

-Beaches. On the coast a short way from Pachino is Marzamemi, which doubles as a fishing village and small tourist resort, with an attractive sandy beach. It’s the beginning of a long series of lovely beaches extending north. A hundred metres offshore here is the Island of Brancati, which provides an interesting view for anyone enjoying a meal at a seafood restaurant on the waterfront.

-History. Pachino has long been picked as a shooting location for domestic Italian films, thanks to its charming appearance. Interesting landmarks in the old town include the Torre Scibini, constructed in the 15th Century as a watchtower against Saracen pirates. 25 kilometres north of Pachino is Noto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its fabulous ensemble of baroque architecture.

-Nature. Pachino is on the southern tip of the Vendicari Nature Reserve, which protects a unique and delicate eco-system thanks to the high salt content of its waters. It boasts a landscape of lagoons, beaches, sand dunes and rock forms that provides a stopover for a wide array of migrating bird species, earning it the nickname of “Bird Hotel”. It’s a fabulous spot too for a secluded seafront walk.

-Food and drink. Right next to the sea, fish is a big ingredient in cuisine around Pachino. Just some of the local seafood specialities include fried swordfish with caper and onion sauce; fish and onion soup; or spaghetti with either black squid or lobster and anchovies. Winemaking is also an important industry; Nero d’Avola is a local red that has its roots in Sicily’s ancient history.

-Syracuse. Syracuse is a few kilometres to the north and is a handsome city bursting with ancient, Byzantine and medieval history. The main Roman and Ancient Greek sites can be found in the Neapolis – admission will grant you entry to the Roman amphitheatre, Greek theatre and various ancient caves and quarries. The old town is also a must. Here you should see the Basilica of Santa Lucia, which houses a Caravaggio painting.

Weather in Pachino

Pachino has a hot Mediterranean climate, with sun and clear skies for most of the year. There’s beach weather here from around May to October, and temperatures reach well above 30 degrees in July and August. Rainfall is scarce in Sicily apart from isolated wet days in autumn and spring. In October temperatures start to slip back towards the low-20s and by January daily highs get up to the mid-teens. Despite the milder weather there are plenty of sunny days to enjoy, even in mid-winter.

Travel to Pachino

You can get to Pachino holiday apartments from abroad via Catania-Fontanarossa Airport (CTA), which is an hour to the north. It’s an easy drive along the A18 autostrada down Sicily’s southeast coast. There are regular bus services linking the airport with Pachino via the Interbus network. If you’re approaching Sicily from mainland Italy then you have a number of options – you could catch the train and connecting “railferry” to Messina from Cities including Rome and Naples, or simply catch the car ferry from Reggio Calabria to Messina.

Secondly swimming in the clear water of the bay from right in front of the apartment every day is a rare and wonderful experience. The apartment is tastefully furnished and well appointed with most of the expected facilities. Alfina was present when we eventually arrived (keep her posted on your whereabouts after arriving at the airport) and explained how everything worked. Alfina and her family were very welcoming and coped with our limited Italian very well. Parking is easy in the street in front of the apartment entry. Be aware the main road from town is one-way which our sat-nav did not pick up. The slightly negative aspects are the absence of wifi (so make sure you have lots of data available on your phone) and a shower that struggles to provide an adequate flow of water of any temperature. Marzememi does not have many shops providing basic food supplies but a bread van comes round every morning. Super markets are located just 5 minutes drive away in Pachino. We had a great time here and in the surrounding towns and thoroughly recommend staying here if you can.

Parking at the end of the street is free of charge. The apartment is on the second floor and sometimes you can hear very beautiful birds singing on the roof in the morning.
