    How great that I stumbled upon your post of hidden places in Sicily because I am about to plan a trip to the Italian island next summer! These places are amazing but as I am hiker lover I would definitely visit Gole dell’Alcantara! Must be fun to hike around there and then have a swim! I wonder thought if the water is cold…

    This is so interesting to read as we’re in Sicily every year. I’ve been to most places on the list (yay!). However, I’m yet to visit Ustica but it’s now definitely on my list. I also never knew about Rocca di Cerere, I’ll make a point of visiting the next time we’re back!

    These are some great places to explore in Sicily! Mozia looks beautiful. I’d love to take a ferry out there. I would love to explore the architecture in Noto too! Those buildings look very unique, and I bet there is a lot of history to learn about in that area regarding the 17th century earthquake!

    I’d love to visit Sicily someday. I’ve seen lots of beautiful photos of Sicily. If I get the chance to visit Europe, I’ll definitely include Sicily on my trip. Love your photos!

    With all these places that I have never heard before, it makes me wonder with the size of Sicily. I thought it’s only an island that you can drive in a day. I would say the black lava at Gole dell’ Alcantara fascinates me a lot. No wonder the locals say it’s one of Italy’s most beautiful nature site. The mosaics patterns at Cathedral of Monreale is also amazing. Thank you for taking me to the off beaten path cities in Sicily.

    When I visited Italy, I did not have the time to get to Sicily–and I regret it! I am definitely going to visit Sicily on my return trip and this is just the itinerary I need. I love off the beaten path finds! Bookmarking for later. Thanks for the useful resource–and for detailing the lesser-known highlights. You saved me a lot of research!

    Thanks for sharing these many off-the-beaten path destination. I prefer them than visiting touristic places. I love to wonder and discover new things, and Sicily looks very tempting.

    Though I went to Italy but to only northern part and missed Sicily. Your article has so many offbeat locations here. I would love to check the quaint town of Cefalu as it really looks beautiful with those red roofs and blue water. Ustica also looks peaceful and calm.

    Of course, Mt. Etna or the Valley of temples of Sicily are very famous but it was so good to learn about Sicily off the beaten path. Noto uand Scicli look so amazing with lots of architectural delights. The sunset around Sampieri Sand Dunes would be a great idea. I would also love to go to Ustica and Monreale.
