Is Sicily more beautiful in spring or fall--anyone been both seasons?

Jump to last reply

Last minute indecisiveness on a trip of several weeks this October--no plane tickets yet but lots of FF availability. I'd originally thought about Puglia (primarily to include a week-long cycling trip). Then, I really started reading about Sicily and became excited about that as a destination for a trip of several weeks. So, we decided on Sicily rather than Puglia and southern Italy.

BUT, my major hesitation is that I keep reading how beautiful Sicily is in the spring with all of the wildflowers. And, I just read an old comment here from someone who'd been to Sicily in the end of September saying that it was dry and not particularly attractive. Now I am wondering if we should just go forward with Puglia next month and save Sicily for a spring trip since we would be doing lots of outdoor activities like hiking and driving around in the countryside. We live in one of those super cold, crummy climates, so I am sure even early March in Sicily would be lovely weather for us.

Any thoughts? Thanks.
