soloSicily: What’s On In Sicily In May

Events and festivals in Sicily in May include sports events, food festivals, and traditional Greek theatre.
April 19, 2012 - PRLog -- The World Festival on the Beach (14-20 May) takes place at Mondello Beach, just outside Palermo.  Events include top-level displays by windsurf and sailing world champions, beach volleyball, sky diving, paragliding, kite surfing and jazz concerts.

For the ultimate romantic experience, stay in Tanguera a one-bedroom ultra-modern villa with an outdoor sunken bath on a private terrace and a large double bedroom dominated by a jacuzzi with colour-changing chromatic lighting.   The villa is within walking distance of the beach and lively seaside resort of Mondello, and a short drive from the centre of Palermo.   A one-week stay at Tanguera in May costs from £1240 (sleeps 2).

Cannoli & Friends (6-8 May),  a celebration of ‘cannoli’, a fried pastry shell filled with lightly-sweetened ricotta and most Sicilians’ favourite dessert, takes place at Piana degli Albanesi, in the hills above Palermo.  Up to 50,000 ‘cannoli’ are said to be consumed during the three day festival!

Stay at soloSicily’s newest property, Il Poggio, a 4-bedroom villa with a large pool, overlooking the hills around Monreale and half-way between Palermo and Piana degli Albanesi.  One week at Il Poggio in May starts at £3038 (sleeps 6).

The Greek Theatre Festival in Syracuse (11 May – 30 June) is generally considered the most important classical theatre event in Italy.   Taking place in Syracuse’s magnificent Greek Theatre, the 2012 season is the 48th cycle of classical plays, featuring Aeschylus’ Prometheus, Euripedes’ The Bacchae and Aristophanes’ The Birds.

Stay at soloSicily’s Not’Art House, a three-bedroom house with outdoor jacuzzi overlooking the sea, and a five minute walk to the beach.  One week in May starts at £1920 (sleeps 6).
