The Sicily region
The Sicily has on of the most pleasant climates in Europe, and every season has its own attraction. The average temperature in the deep midwinter is of 10-12 °, and in sunny days it can be warm enough to walk around in a tee-shirt. In February the almond trees are in blossom. In March and April the wild flowers begin to bloom all over Sicily and on the coast the first bathers start taking to the waters (though the water is still bracing).
It's well worth a trip just to experience the Easter processions, bringing together religion, folklore and tradition. All over the island, in large towns and tiny villages alike, processions weave their way through narrow streets and piazzas until they finally arrive at the local parish church or Cathedral.
In May the temperatures are ideal for walking with the mountain slopes exploding in colour. In June the sea is warm but the beaches are still deserted, except during the weekends when the first Sicilians start to brave the waters. The fruit trees are laden with cherries, plums, peaches, apricots. In July and especially in August the coast is crowded but the beautiful areas of the interior (and a few "undiscovered" parts of the coast) are however relatively unfrequented.
In September there is the grapes harvest or "vendemmia", temperatures remain very comfortable and the island retains that summer feeling, but without the crowds.
October is one of the most beautiful periods for country walking with the vines turning to red and orange in the vast vineyards on M.Etna. In November often the temperatures stay in the high twenties during the day, even if it can rain (and rain is very welcome), though the big storms that often sweep the Italian peninsula generally pass safely to the north of Sicily. The oranges and mandarins season is starting. In December the temperatures during the day can still be extremely agreeable.
Pozzallo, with latitude 70 km under Tunis, is both one of the sunniest town in Italy and the town is one of only 4 cities in Sicily to have been awarded “Blue Flag of the year 2008”, title obtained for the beautiful beach, crystal clear sea, coast quality, environmental education, services and security measures.
The city offers you kilometres of beaches, which are the pride of the town, a lot of restaurants that cook Sicilian recipes typical of fresh fish, bars, pubs and shops that allow you to shop all year round, not least the brand new Pietre Nere Promenade, area of the city with a strong tourist attraction in July and August. The sunny weather almost all year round, allows you to take the sun on the beach, from April to October.
Trade and tourism Port allows you to make daily trips to Island of Malta by Catamaran “ferry boat” with distance journey of about an hour.
The rest of the year, the city is the ideal place to relax away from the chaos of the city. Friendly people will allows you to feel at home.
