Family holiday: Siracusa and the coast of Western Sicily

A seafront BB, a culture fix and a vibrant nightlife in Siracusa

A worthy rival of Athens, Rome and Carthage over the control of the Mediterranean Sea, Siracusa is today one of Italy's most charming cities and a monument to Baroque architecture that has earned Unesco World Heritage status.

With more than 3000 years of history and once the greatest city of the ancient world, it is hard to think of a reason not to go to Siracusa.

Discover ancient dwellings in its archeological park or walk around Baroque monuments in the historic centre of Ortigia

The friendly and relaxed hospitality provided by Sabrina combined a location directly on the sea make the Giuggiulena the best base from which to explore Siracusa. The freshly home made cakes served at breakfast also play a big part.

Move over to beaches of Mazara del Vallo in Western Sicily

With its rich architecture Mazara del Vallo sums up the varied history of Sicily.

In an ambient strongly permeated with Arab culture, beautiful buildings stand in an elegant Baroque. Walking through the streets and squares of Mazara is like a walk in the past through the different eras that have distinguished this city.

Explore the ancient temples at Segesta, Selinunte and the Valley of the Temples and punctuate your visit with picnics in the warm sunshine. Marsala, the salt plans, Erice and the Egadi islands all make an easy day trip.

Casa Alba is a spacious 2-bedroom villa with pool at about 200m to the beach and close to the town.

Family Fun: Sicily's Adventure Parks

The adventure parks in Sicily are aimed at those who want to "have outdoor fun" immersed in greenery, experiencing the thrill of climbing and challenging the force of gravity.

They consist of routes suspended between tall trees or between rocks where, with different levels of difficulty (suitable for both children and adult), action takes place under the careful control and assistance of qualified personnel.

Adventure parks equip their users with safety devices generally used by mountaineers (harnesses, carabiners, pulleys) to reduce the risk of injury to zero.
