Sunday in Sicily, Italy
In case you are coming to Sicily, Italy in peak seasons, there are also other free places and homes on the island to explore. We listed here the free and cheapest things to do in Sicily so you can save even more.
Sunday in Sicily means a lot of things to many people. For a typical Sicilian family, it is a day at the Church and meeting the extended clan afterwards for a weekly reunion. In small villages, many stores only open on mornings too and close down in the afternoon for these reasons. During mid-Spring to the entire Summer, it is a lazy day at the beach, young and old lounging, swimming and having fun. Visiting Sicily museums and galleries is a must, but you do not need to visit them all at once. Pause for a minute. Admire the views, relish the moment. Sicily will speak within you in a way that it will touch your soul.
