Italy attractions … to many to count. If March is a good time to think about touring Sicily, April, when the sun is getting higher and the days are pleasantly warm, is perfect for a weekend break to this wonderful Sicilian hilltop resort. Famous for its panoramic views of the sea and Mount Etna from the ruined Roman theatre, it is also some to some of Sicily’s best hotels and restaurants. DH Lawrence came here in the Twenties and loved it – it is just as seductive a century later.
