Sicily Vacation Packages

Discover this beguiling Italian island, a rich center of Mediterranean culture and home to some of Europe’s most enchanting vistas.

At some point during its history, Sicily has been occupied by almost every major Mediterranean civilization. The area continues to serve as an important crossroad between Africa and Europe. This largest of Italy’s islands has landscape with a mesmerizing combination of crystal clear seas, rumbling volcanoes, lush vegetation and ancient ruins. Dive, swim, hike and climb across Sicily and its offshore islands. Sample the region’s unique and delicious cuisine as you travel from town to town.

Sicily’s capital, Palermo, is an intriguing mix of architectural styles and cultures. The city has been ruled by Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs and Normans, each of which has left its mark on the city. Today, Palermo’s streets are filled with a pleasing jumble of Roman, Byzantine and Arab-Norman architecture. Walk through the infamously chaotic streets, enjoying the bustling atmosphere of its outdoor markets and public squares. 

Taormina is one of Sicily’s most enchanting towns. From its magnificent mountainside setting, the town offers stunning views of the Ionian Sea and the peak of Mount Etna. Wander down the busy main street lined with upscale shops or explore Teatro Greco, a gorgeous Greek theater constructed in the 3rd century B.C. Discover lovely medieval churches throughout the town and trek along the hiking paths extending into the surrounding hillsides.

Venture to the UNESCO-protected Aeolian Islands, located off Sicily’s northeastern coast. This archipelago of seven islands draws outdoor enthusiasts, offering opportunities to hike active volcanoes, swim in deep blue waters and snorkel over underwater fumaroles. Relax on the black-sand beaches of the small island of Vulcano, join well-heeled visitors spending their summers on Panarea or escape the crowds on remote Alicudi.

Sicily is served by three main airports: Palermo, Catania and Trapani. You’ll have no trouble reaching the region’s cities and coastal resorts by bus and train, but a car or motorbike is generally necessary if you want to explore more remote areas.

Q: Should I book a car while on vacation in Sicily?

A: Unless you're really into cars, public transportation is probably the best way of commuting around the streets of Palermo or Catania. With no expensive parking fees (or trips to the gas pump) to have to worry about, you'll be able to explore the sights of the city with ease. If you'd prefer to hightail it straight out of town and cruise around the region of Palermo or elsewhere, renting a car is a great option. Browse our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Sicily, book a ride and go where you want, whenever you want.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a vacation to Sicily?

A: Your visit to Sicily will most probably begin at one of these major international airports:

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a vacation to Sicily?

A: Sicily is bursting with comfortable and convenient accommodations. Apartments are the most popular choice. Bed & breakfasts, hotels and guest houses are worth considering too.

Q: What does a vacation booking with Expedia include?

A: Flights, hotels, cars — and experiences and activities. Expedia has everything you need for a perfect vacation. Choose just one of these options or book one of our superb travel packages. You've got the flexibility and freedom to design your getaway the way you like it.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my vacation to Sicily?

A: You can save money (and time) by choosing to bundle your bookings with us. From Hotels to Flights and Activities, Expedia will help you pull together a memorable Sicily trip. The more you organize now, the more you stand to save. You'll also have less to do when you finally get to your destination.

Q: What are the best things to do in Sicily?

A: A trip to Palermo isn't complete until you've seen Church of San Cataldo, Regional Gallery and Renzo Barbera Stadium. Remember to get a photo of yourself at each of these iconic attractions to prove it to your friends back home.

On the other hand, if you're visiting Catania, many vacationers head to Elephant Fountain, Catania Cathedral and Massimo Bellini Theater.

Messina is another thrilling city that turns on the charm for visitors from around the globe. With iconic attractions such as Fountain of Orion, Messina Fountain of Neptune and Church of Santissima Annunziata dei Catalani, what more could you ask for?
