Sicily enjoys a Mediterranean climate, and days are pretty mild. That's not to say that Sicily does not get its cold spells, particularly inland, and the summers are nothing less than scorching. For summer, pack light clothing and a sweater for the evening, and a pair of good walking shoes for the ancient sites. If visiting Mount Etna, dress in layers; as the temperatures can be rather cold even in August. Winter days are rather blustery, so a good down jacket is necessary. Whatever the season bring a good pair of sunglasses, as the wind can be awfully bothersome, and take high-protection suntan lotion.
