Tips / Destination

Check out some of these watering holes in Sicily for a relaxing early evening drink, known as an aperitivo, or a more lively night out.

If you are in Catania in eastern Sicily, try Internetteria. It’s near the law school so there may well be students around, and the menu features craft beers, a good wine list and cocktails made by a trained mixologist.

In Palermo, head to Vespa Café, near Teatro Massimo. The walls are stacked with books, making for a homey atmosphere, and there are loads of wines to order by the glass or by the bottle.

Timoleone Café is found in Taormina, and offers a spectacular garden where you can relax with one of the many cocktails. Craft beers and wines complete the menu, and there is even shisha if you want to smoke.

Over in Ortiga you will find the incredibly trendy MOON Ortiga, which offers an art space alongside a bar-restaurant. Check out the listings to see if there are any live jazz evenings while you are in town, then drop in for a glass of wine.

Rakija may take its name from the fruit brandy popular in the Balkans, but it’s in fact a bar in Trapani. This place is great for a big night out, with regular live DJ sets.

Tuparka Infinity Scarf

Regardless of the temperatures outside, a scarf can be the perfect travel companion if the wind picks up, the sun comes out and you need a shield, you need to cover your shoulders to enter a religious house, or you travel to or through a Muslim country and you need to cover up for modesty.
