Spring/Easter Breaks in Sicily

The beautiful island of Sicily is just a 3 hour flight from the UK, distinctive in both its history and culture (despite its close proximity to the Italian mainland) and offers even seasoned travellers a unique and memorable taste of the Mediterranean. Sicily has a longer warm weather season than other parts of Italy with spring starting early, the ground carpeted with wild flowers as early as February yet being cooler than the summer month, March and April are ideal for sightseeing.

Sicily offers holiday makers an unique and captivating history, evidence of which is peppered generously across the island; Exquisite Sicilian cuisine often prized for its locally sourced produce and multicultural influences; Vibrant towns offering an authentic Sicilian experience alongside what are considered to be some of the most picturesque bays in the Mediterranean; Activities and accommodation to suit all travellers from large families to couples; Pleasant Mediterranean climate with a blissful 6 month summer; Variety of activities from water sports and boat tours to historical excursions and tours of Mount Etna Europe’s highest (3,323m) and most active volcano; Abundance of lively and traditional festivals taking place throughout the year; Accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, some open all year round.

For a Spring/Easter Break we would suggest:

Grand Hotel Minareto is a 5 star resort style hotel with an enviable position surrounded by crystal-clear sea. Guests will enjoy a memorable taste of Sicily with a wealth of facilities including a reserved beach, Spa, gym, sophisticated restaurants and elegantly furnished bedrooms.
Grand Hotel Minareto is located in the Plemmirio Marine Nature Reserve facing Syracuse and the island of Ortigia.  Syracuse is a city rich in Greek and Roman architecture and which Cicero once considered to be the most beautiful of all the Greek cities. Perhaps most famously, the city of Syracuse is home to one of the greatest ancient Greek Theatres dating back to the 5th century BC and large enough to hold an audience of up to 15,000. This theatre attracts history enthusiasts from all over the world and is still used to this day for the annual Greek Theatre festival. With other attractions such as the 3rd century Roman Amphitheatre and the archaeological museum as well as an abundance of shops, restaurants and bars, Syracuse offers a fantastic location to experience Sicily. The island of Ortigia is also drenched in culture and boasts a vibrant nightlife. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to Syracuse and water taxi’s to the island of Ortigia.
