The Sicily region
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.
