Sicily

Sicily – the only place to be in May

As if there wasn’t enough to do in Sicily … May brings with it a whole range of additional activities and events around the island.  Book now for the Greek Theatre Festival in Syracuse, Sicily (11 May – 30 June), generally considered the most important classical theatre event in Italy.   Taking place in Syracuse’s astonishing Greek Theatre, the 2012 season is the 48th cycle of classical plays, featuring Aeschylus’ Prometheus, Euripedes’ The Bacchae and Aristophanes’ The Birds.

Or for something a little more laid back, head to the west of the island where the World Festival on the Beach (14-20 May) takes place at Mondello Beach, just outside Palermo.  Events include top-level displays by windsurf and sailing world champions, beach volleyball, sky diving, paragliding, kite surfing and jazz concerts.

Last week’s Sunday Times included details of both events, with accommodation with JG Communications’ clients, soloSicily and ExpertoItaly.
