A Week in Sicily: 3 Great Self-Drive Itineraries

If you have a week in Sicily, it’s best to focus on one or two regions as opposed to trying to see everything. There's the wine country of the west, the medieval villages of the southeast and the giant Etna volcano in between. The following 7-day itineraries offer some of these attractions, plus incredible food, dramatic coastal views and a history and culture that stretches to time immemorial.

Sicily in 3 days: 2 Short Coastal Tour Options

With three days you can encounter a slice of Sicily and its wonderful coastlines, culture and ancient ruins. We have brought together two itineraries that show off these highlights and more. One trip starts from the bustling city of Palermo and continues to the scenic wineries of western Sicily. The other takes you to the younger Catania, located in the shadow of Mt. Etna and close to quaint seaside resorts. Both itineraries will introduce you to Sicily's culture of wine, food and music that together create an unforgettable experience.

How many days do you need in Sicily?

Sicily can be experienced in as little as 3 to 5 days if you are short on time and interested in a quick coastal retreat. However, it’s much better to spend at least a week discovering this Mediterranean paradise. If you have 7 days you can explore a meaningful section of the island. Lucky travelers who have 14 days for their trip to Sicily can comfortably drive around Italy's entire coastline, experiencing the island's colorful clash of amazing flavors, ancient ruins, medieval villages, beaches and volcanoes.
