Practical information : Move & Laze around Sicily
Budget & Tips
The walks are free and self-guided when you just follow the marked paths. You can also decide to go from village to village by small country roads. The sea is accessible for free, and so is the beach, everywhere in front of and around the lidos, the famous paying beaches where you can book a deckchair. Many wild creeks exist around the island and the satellite islands.
Your documents please
The island of Ustica off the coast of Palermo and the Aeolian Islands with their volcanic seabed are particularly attractive to divers. The regulations are the same as everywhere in Europe and the diving centers are all PADI certified.
The guides authorized to climb Etna or Stromboli are accredited to ensure the safety instructions and take responsibility for the groups.
To be booked
Diving is an activity to be booked if possible in high season, as are treks to Etna or the Aeolian Islands, especially Stromboli, a very popular climb and boat trip, even if you can no longer get close to the crater.
The Palermo International Marathon takes place every year in November. It welcomes the world's greatest runners. More information on www.palermomaratona.it
