There is no time like the present for exploring the history of the Italian, Mediterranean island of Sicily. Located at the toe of the boot of Italy’s mainland, the island is one of the largest in the Mediterranean and is an ideal place to spend an early autumnal holiday in one of the stunning villas in Sicily . 

Visitors to the island in the months of September, October and November will be surprised by the warmth at this time of the year, as the hot, dry summers lead into a mild winter. It is the perfect time of the year to book villas in Sicily and travel around the area. The history of the island is rich and epic in its scope, and dates back to the earliest archaeological findings which were from around 8,000 B.C. 

In the south of Sicily, there is a grouping of several sites that are worthy of an informative and enjoyable day trip. Head east to the Necropolis of Pantalica, which is said to have over 5,000 tombs and there is no need to rush off back to your villas in Sicily afterwards when the Syracuse archaeological site is so close by. 

Or, head to the north and stop at the Monreale Cathedral and the Palazzo dei Normanni in Palermo. Here you can take your time to stroll through the ancient and entrancing caves of the catacombs of the Capuchins. From the north, those who want to see more can head westward to see the incomplete, but majestic and well-preserved Temple of Segesta. 

When travelling and exploring the island, there is no better accommodation choice than villas in Sicily. The company, Essential Italy, provides a huge range of Italian villa accommodation that puts visitors right in the heart of Sicily.
