Tips and Tricks before you come to Sicily
-Bring a pair of hiking shoes. Climbing a volcano or shopping the whole day long can be tiring. Comfy shoes are important!
-Bring a sweater as even during the hottest days some areas can be chilly during the evening.
-If you decide to hire a car, go for a small one. Sicilian roads can be small and narrow.
-Look both ways each time you cross the road. Sicilian drivers are very … ehm… passionate, so always expect the unexpected, whether you are on foot or driving a car.
–Don’t get on a diet before you come to Sicily, do it when you go back home
-Plan distances on your trip.
Driving from one side to the other of the island takes more than 4 hours…
–Enjoy the Sicilian way of life.
Don’t expect everyone to be perfectly on time, and understand the “siesta” closing time. Once you get it and live it you’ll be much more relaxed… like us Sicilians.
