5 Reasons Why Sicily is the Perfect Destination for a Family Holiday

When a holiday destination is described as having a dreamy experience in a stunning scenery it certainly can feel like music to one’s ears. All things considered though, choosing a holiday destination that is suitable for every member of your family can be hard work. The great news is that Sicily can cater to the needs of your entire family. As a parent keeping your children unplugged during a vacation can feel nearly impossible, especially as day’s progress and children become restless of repeated day-long trips to the beach. Sicily also offers a wide range of adequate accommodations for big families like beachfront villas with a private pool at budget-friendly prices.

Here are 5 great reasons why Sicily is the perfect family destination:

The nature reserves, such as around Mt. Etna, are great places for day trips. The parents can revel in the incredible beauty of the parks and the kids can run around as they choose. Also the whole family can enjoy looking at the ancient lava flows and maybe even see an eruption. 

Sicily also has incredible adventure parks with rope courses and zip lines. The kids can have all sorts of fun at outdoor playgrounds such as the Madonie Adventure park and the parents can enjoy horse riding and hikes. 

Next, Sicily has some of the most incredible beaches in the world. Your whole family can relax in the sun and swim in the azure waters in places such as Taormina. Much of Sicily is filled with ancient Greek and Roman ruins, you can see incredible Greek amphitheaters along the coast near Syracusa often with incredible views and unforgettable backdrops. 

The children will love exploring some of the hundreds of castles around the island. Make your way to Castello Orsino in Catania or Erice for some of the most impressive castles in the Mediterranean. 

Another great way to learn about Sicilian culture and entertain the whole family is to find a puppet theater. These can be found in all the major towns and the puppeteers enact medieval stories and tales which will keep the kids entertained for hours. Sicily really has it all for a family vacation, so book yours today and enjoy the sun, history, nature, and wonder of the Mediterranean island!
