There are two gateways for exploring Sicily – you can fly from London to Palermo (PMO) or to Catania (CTA). Both flights take just three hours.
Fly to Palermo with its world-renowned archaeological museum, the mosaic-encrusted pillars of the Norman cathedral in Monreale and for access to the Verdura Resort and the southern coast fishing village of Sciacca. Fly to Catania for hill towns in the south, the glitzy Taormina resorts and Syracuse with its ancient island centre, Ortygia. Hire a car for outside the cities for holidays in Sicily with more freedom. There’s a lot to see – and 3,000 years of shifting histories to explore.
