Trip Report Reflections on Revisiting Sicily

Jump to last reply

I have been intending to come to Sicily again for a while. My last trip was 10 years ago, blighted by lack of cash and bad weather. This time I have more of the former and am hoping for better luck with the latter.

What has struck me very forcibly this time is how much Sicily has changed; more than anywhere else I can think of and more than I expected. Thinking about it, it is obvious when you look at the number of Sicily trips on this forum and others. It is now definitely on the tourist trail whereas 10 years ago it still felt like an afterthought. I am not sure which I prefer!
I ran into lots of groups: German hiking groups, Rick Steves groups, biking groups, large French groups. For a solo traveller it is always a challenge to slip between the cracks and manage not to be overwhelmed. The other side of the coin of course is anonymity!

This time the plan was to see the bits I missed last time. So my main centres are Siracusa, the Aeolian Islands and Trapani and the west. I have between 2 and 3 weeks, at the same time of year as last time, end of Sept/early Oct. So far the weather has been kinder to me.
