October vacations in Sicily
In Sicily, holidays in October are a really smart choice: B&B and vacation rentals are cheap and the Mediterranean climate allows you to fully enjoy the beautiful beaches! The perfect base, easily accessible by any means of transport, could be Catania: in the shadow of Etna extends a unique coastline and you will have the opportunity to organize wonderful excursions to discover the natural and archaeological beauties of eastern Sicily.
To start your day with the right charge, ask your B&B in Catania for a typical breakfast: a glass of almond milk and a freshly baked brioche. For lunch, you could eat a tasty dish of pasta with sardines in the Catanese style, or order a fish soup in one of the restaurants along the coast. If you love sweets, by spending your holidays in October in Catania you will be in the right place: from cookies with almond paste to the traditional cannoli with ricotta cheese, the choice is really wide!
Beach holidays in October, in Calabria
Spending your holidays in October in Calabria can be the occasion to discover at low cost the naturalistic wonders and the suggestive bays of the Tyrrhenian coast of this Southern Italy region. Exploring the coastline you will discover a succession of cliffs and caves with imaginative names, a tangible sign of the eternal struggle between the land and the sea. Going up the coast from the tip of the Italian “boot” you will meet some of the most popular tourist destinations in Calabria:
- Capo Vaticano, popular among scuba divers for its crystal clear sea and beautiful seabed;
- Tropea, with its famous beaches of Rotonda and Riaci Bay and its lively nightlife;
- Pizzo, built on a terrace of tuff overlooking the sea.
Pizzo could be the ideal base for your holidays in October in Calabria! At the Casa Armonia B&B, in the center of the town, you will receive a warm welcome from Franco and his family.
During your vacations in October in Pizzo you will have the opportunity to taste all the specialties of the Calabrian cuisine, which include dishes with a delicate flavor based on tuna and other fish as well as dishes with a strong taste, such as ‘nduja and other specialties in which chili pepper abounds.
Calabria, at the table as well as in tourist tours, offers the opportunity to easily switch from the resources of the sea to those of the mountains, and after a morning dip in the waters of Pizzo you could treat yourself to a tour in its hinterland. You will discover an area rich in history, traditions, art, and culture, with numerous fortresses, churches, and archaeological sites to visit. If you arrive in Caronte, which is less than 30 km from Pizzo, you will have a modern spa: you can immerse yourself in the sulfurous waters that flow from the homonymous source at a temperature of about 39°C, with therapeutic properties known since antiquity.
