Sicily, with its triangular shape, occupies the exact geographic and geometric centre of the Mediterranean sea. The island has always been considered a bridge between Africa, Asia and Europe. It is the largest region in Italy (25,460 sq km) and has roughly 5,082,355 inhabitants.

Its territory is subdivided into nine provinces: Palermo, Catania, Messina, Trapani, Syracuse, Ragusa, Caltanissetta, Agrigento and Enna.


Sicilian climate is typically Mediterranean, with long and sunny summers and mild winters. But in the inner areas, due to its mostly hilly and mountainous territory, the climate is rather continental.

Sicilian weather is influenced by a wind called ‘Scirocco’: a hot and dry wind originating in the North African Desert, that across the Mediterranean is charged with humidity, so it blows humid and hot in Sicily.

Rainfall is more abundant in autumn and spring months.

Temperatures in Sicily range on average between 26°-32° C in July and August and 10°-14° C in December and February.

The seawater temperature ranges from about 16° C in winter and 27° C in summer.
