Southern Spain or Sicily in early to mid March

Hi there,

My husband and I are looking to spend our honeymoon in either Southern Spain or Sicily. I'm wondering which has the overall better weather (the warmer the better!) and general affordability. We like cities, food, art, nature, culture, all the good stuff. Any advice would be welcome!

Neither will have beach weather at that time of year. If that's what you want you need to do the Carib or Hawaii.

It should be a great time for southern Spain - pleasantly warm during the day but cool at night and thre are tons of things to do and see.

Here's a good source for weather information:
http://www.wunderground.com

Both destinations would seem to meet your criteria, and both are wonderful!

If it matters, Andalusia / Southern Spain is, IMO, "perfect" for a trip of 1.5 to 2 weeks, give or take. Sicily is, IMO, "perfect" for a trip of 2.5 to 3 weeks, give or take. You can certainly visit either with less time, but if your time is less, you'll need to decide what to skip.

Once you decide on your destination, invest in a few good guidebooks, or visit some at your local library. You will learn all sorts of things you never even thought to ask.

Congratulations and best wishes!

Spain is likely to be cheaper and might have better/drier weather.
