It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Sicily

Peak Season: May to June; September to October

Tourists flock to Sicily during these months, which means that attractions are packed and hotel prices are at their highest. Ideal, 80-degree temperatures are perfect for enjoying the ocean and spending days visiting historical sights.

Off Season: November to April

During the winter, weather drops as low as the 50s, and many seaside hotels close for the season. In the big cities and other areas, however, fewer crowds mean easier sightseeing. Properties that do remain open offer steep discounts.

Sweet Spot: July to August

Unless you’re up for dealing with 100-plus-degree days, avoid Sicily these two months. Hotels do discount, but many Sicilians themselves flee the island for cooler temperatures, and some properties and restaurants shut down.
