The biggest island in the Mediterranean is a real gem, ready to offer those who venture there the most wonderful cruising... Sicily is a land of mysteries, but also and above all, of beauty. To be discovered urgently!
Numerous charter flights or regular airlines allow you to arrive directly in Sicily, at Palermo, whose airport is about 25km from the marina where the charter companies can be found.
Spring, summer or autumn: each season has its enthusiasts. The weather is very good in Sicily, and the temperature fluctuates from a minimum of 11°C in winter to more than 25°C in the sunny season. The summer can be very hot, or even stifling, so it is an advantage to be on a boat....
This is a really big island, conditions are therefore varied, depending on where you are sailing. Throughout the season, on the north and north-west coasts, the north-westerly or westerly breeze generally blows at between 10 and 20 knots. On the east coast, a sea breeze from the south (which can become quite strong) will blow during the day.
Sicily is Italian; the official currency is therefore the euro. Credit cards accepted everywhere. Although the coasts are sumptuous, don't leave without good travel guides, so you can enjoy the interior of the islands...
