The Necropolis of Pantàlica

Climate:

Sicily has a Mediterranean climate with mild, somewhat rainy winters and hot, dry summers. At nearly 11,000 feet above sea level, Mount Etna is usually covered in snow during the winter. Summer, especially July and August, is the peak season. During this time, locals and foreign tourists visit to enjoy outdoor activities such as going to the beach, festivals, food fairs, and concerts.

Gastronomy in Sicily:

Sicilian food is quite diverse, with influences from Italian, Greek, Spanish, and French cuisine. Fragrant olive oil, rich tomato sauce, exquisite cheeses, and wines are staples in Sicilian dishes. Of course, since Sicily is an island, fresh fish is prominent in the local cuisine. While on your Sicily yacht charter, sample some of the local delicacies.
