GET­TING THERE

Woolworths TASTE - - Travel -

FLIGHTS & VISAS Flights to Rome are rel­a­tively cheap from Jo­han­nes­burg. I trav­elled with Ethiopian Air­lines and landed a deal at R5 000 re­turn. From Rome, catch a flight to Palermo on a re­gional air­line such as Ryanair. South African pass­port-hold­ers re­quire a Schen­gen visa.

GET­TING AROUND Walk­ing is best and there are plenty of bus routes, but they get full, par­tic­u­larly on week­ends to and from the city’s clos­est beach, Mon­dello. I also ad­vise a visit to quaint Ce­falu nearby.

CUR­RENCY Eu­ros, but on the whole I found Si­cily to be far cheaper than Rome and Florence.
