As almost everywhere in Italy and Southern Europe, Sicilians are extremely welcoming to families and children. Especially during the summer months Sicily's beaches are busy with families and quite often you will see small kids running around in the streets in the later hours of the evenings.
Due to its manageable size, traveling with kids in Sicily is easy as you are close to the coast and the beaches almost the whole time and you don't have to travel long distances to explore different regions of the island. There is a wide range of accommodation available for families, ranging from larger hotels to unique guesthouses and rural farm stays.
Italian cuisine is an all time favorite for kids of any age all over the world and dining out with kids in Sicily is very easy as most restaurants are well used to catering for children and extended families. If pizza, pasta, gelato or the large choice of Sicilian desserts, you can be certain that your family won't go hungry. Cooking classes and tastings tailored to families are also a great way to spend a rainy day or when you are feeling less active.
The long coastline with long sandy beaches in the South, cozy and rugged bays in the North and the wonderful offshore islands in the Northeast and West, sets the perfect playground for many exciting activities. From snorkeling, fishing and kayaking in the turquoise sea, body rafting in the gorges formed on volcanic rock to cycling tours through historic centers and hiking adventures on the smoking slopes of Etna or the Aeolian islands, there is certainly no space for boring days. In the end, what better adventure playground could there be than one widely shaped by ongoing volcanic activity?
