Weather in January

by Spunke

Thinking about heading to Sicily this jan, is that a smart move or should I wait until later in the year?? Is the weather very nice at that time of the year or is it just as cold as in the states??

"Is it as cold as in the States?" - I'd say definitely warmer than North Dakota but not as warm as Florida.

Palermo's on roughly the same latitude as Baltimore and Washington, Syracuse the same as San Francisco but they're on an island rather than being backed by a continental land mass so the climate is milder. You can expect average daytime temps of around 60 degs, nights about 45-46 degs, a bit of rain (7.5" is the average monthly rainfall).

Sicily's a fantastic place with lots to see and do but January is definitely low season so you will find some hotels and restaurants are closed and you'll have shorter days to go off exploring. You'll also find far fewer tourists are sharing the magic with you.

Hm . . . We live in Sacramento, California USA and you can probably expect about the same temps in Sicily in January. We love it! It's our favorite time of year. LOL

Travel Tips for Palermo

Great street food!

by pecsihornet

In the streets of Palermo you can find great foods at a low price (for only 1-2 EUR) like arancini (rice balls stuffed with meat and peas), panini panelle (deep-fried chickpea fritters) or sfincione (thick slab of pizza with tomato, anchovy, onions, artichokes and bread-crumbs). We liked all of them!

Great food ambience could be improved

by Paisleypaul about 'a cuccagna

We passed by this side street and the restaurant is yards from Via Roma. We fancied a seat outside but were told we would have had to book. We sat inside where the decor was nice but the staff were having an off day, we felt we had inconvenienced them by showing up at all. The main waiter had the most incredulous open mouthed sucking in air expression as we asked for ever more outrageous items (e.g. mineral water) and this was not one we were in a hurry to get back to because of it. We really did enter eat and leave an hour or so later without seeing a smile. If you go I hope it is a different shift ! Swordfish glazzato was excellent, as was veal escalope, served with salad, potatoes in rosemary with coca cola mineral water, a half bottle of Regaleali and two melon jelly tarts was avery reasonable Eu48.50.

Chiesa di San Giuseppe dei Teatini

by Paisleypaul

Had not found anything on the Chiesa di San Giuseppe dei Teatini that I could recall in any of the guide books but for all its outward anonymity, it rivals or surpasses any church in the city, complete with ceiling paintings alla Sistina ! Architect was Jacobo Besio Theatino.

Wonderful Palermo

by mariocibelli

"Let Palermo's secret stay secret!"

Even though I may complain about the South of Italy getting a rotten deal as far as press and tourism goes, sometimes it pays off - in the case of Palermo.

Palermo is fantastic, such a treat after the unwashed masses yearning for a ticket to the Uffizi in Florence or lining up for hours for a glmpse of the Capella Sistina in Rome (along with 5000 other people who have no idea why they are there or what they are looking at - just that they can say that they have done it afterwards!)..Palermo was a treat.

So much to do and see - and a city that was "suprisingly" and I say this from an Italian perspective clean and welcoming.

So, take the next bus for Palermo and explore over three mileneum of civilization.

Actually the most important thig is to make sure you have a steady daily supply of Cannoli and Cassata!

Buon apetito!

"San Cataldo"
