Blog > Self-drive touring in Sicily

If you can’t quite decide where you’d like to go during a holiday to Sicily, embark on a self-drive holiday and do it all!

With the prospect to do whatever you like, when you like, self-drive touring holidays are great opportunities to satisfy holiday-makers who like to stay busy, or those who like to see different places. Plus, and perhaps the best bit, you can do all of this at your own leisure - stopping along the way to sample aromatic Italian coffee in quaint little cafés, enjoying authentic pizzerias or pausing to admire the fabulous coastal views - you can do as you please whilst making your way to your next destination.

To make your Sicily self-drive holiday as easy as possible, we have a selection of pre-designed tours, each with a different focus and offering a range of locations across the island. Choosing one of these options means we can send you on your way, giving you the peace of mind that your return flights, route and hotels are all already sorted. Alternatively, if you would rather build your own tour, we can work directly together to devise your perfect itinerary.

Of our three existing itineraries, you can choose to:


Explore the East Coast

This seven-night tour starts in Taormina, where magnificent views of Mount Etna await, and some fantastic monuments such as the stunning Greek Theatre. You’ll then head south to Syracuse, a city full to the brim with architectural beauty and history. Be sure to pop over to the island of Ortigia too for an added dose of history (one of Sicily’s UNESCO sites).

A 10-night adventure that sees you visit some of Sicily’s most impressive baroque towns, including Noto, Modica and Ragusa in the south east. For the foodies among you, Modica is renowned for its chocolate and cheese…
