Want to know where’s hot in September? Sicily is sure to tick plenty of the boxes...

If you’re feeling like the summer is slowly slipping away and you’ve not yet been on your holidays, don’t despair, as Sicily is a fantastic destination to visit at the start of autumn. September holidays to Sicily are a wonderful choice for many reasons, the first, perhaps, being the superb September weather…

Glorious September sunshine

Still boasting a warm, welcoming climate hovering around the late-twenties, beach lovers will rejoice in the chance to spend their time relaxing along the coast, and taking a dip in the sea. It’s also a superb time to visit some events away from the beach, such as the popular five-day Cous Cous festival in San Vito Lo Capo, and the concerts held at the Greek Theatre in Taormina.

Local life reappears

As the main tourist season starts to slow down after August is over, you’ll get the wonderful opportunity to witness a little more of traditional, Sicilian life. A popular pastime is to find a charming little café in one of the island’s many piazzas, grab a coffee and a slice of cake and simply watch the world go by. You’ll have the added bonus of the sunshine, so you can top up your tan at the same time.

Authentic Sicilian experiences

Apart from the tasty cuisine, which you won’t struggle to find when on holiday in Sicily, there are also plenty of historical gems, scattered across the island. Waiting until September is beneficial, as the tourist season is coming to an end, and you’re not battling quite as much heat as July and August. Perhaps you’d like to visit the Valley of the Temples at Agrigento? Or Ortigia island in Syracuse? There are also seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Sicily alone, so you’re spoilt for choice if you want to explore Sicily's historical side.
