What to See in Sicily?

By  | 

I will be in Sicily for a day in a few months, which is not nearly long enough to catch all the highlights. But since readers have given me such great advice for Dublin and Albuquerque, I’d love to hear what are the one or two must-see-things I should put at the top of my list?

I will probably rent a car but if there’s any amazing day tours, open to that as well!

    It may depend on where you begin your day. We stopped in Messina (far NE) as a port of call on a cruise and took a tour centered around filming locations for The Godfather, which was very cool to me since it’s one of my favorite films. I wasn’t very impressed with the parts of Messina we could walk to near the ship once the tour was over. I would have liked to have gone to Palermo but time just didn’t allow it.

    1 day isn’t enough to do much of anything, let alone see more than 1 city.

    That said, not only was I just there, but I just used an on-site for a one-day tour [Virtuoso agent here]. PM me if interested in details.

    Where do you land in Sicily? There are a bunch of places you can visit. Messina was not our favorite place. For a one-day stop, Taormina would be my first choice. It’s a beautiful city atop a hill, with roots back to WWII.

    There’s great food and shopping, incredible views and a great place to wander for a day.

    For one day, I recommend either walking around Palermo, the capital, and hitting different parts of the historical downtown, or hitting one of the areas with ancient Greek ruins, like Agrigento or Siracusa.
