Solo travelling is getting very popular in recent times, since we are leaving our busy and chaotic life to fully explore and discover a destination. Travelling on your own is an experience like no others. It allows you to completely enjoy a place. You can freely go on your own terms without following other people schedule. It is an empowering and confident-buiding experience that everyone has to try at least once in a lifetime.
Deciding to travel alone is an opportunity to become more self-aware , where you truly challenge yourself and discover your inner soul and desire. It is an opportunity to deeply connect with local traditions and culture. It puts life into a different perspective.
Sometimes life gets hard and we have the need to disconnect with our comfort zone. We really need to take a step back to clarify our ideas and breath some fresh air. For those who really crave to to experience such emotions Sicily is surely one of the best destinations!
It is very easy to reach Sicily, as during the whole year there are direct flights to Palermo and Catania, the two main cities.
Here people are very welcoming and you will immediately feel welcomed into the Sicilian lifestyle. Generally, if you are travelling solo, it is easier to walk down alleys, little lanes and markets of the city and get to know local people, maybe while they are sitting outside a cafè sipping a good espresso and reading the newspaper.
Often happens that if you are around on your own – with your sight lost in the beauty of art and architecture – someone will ask you if you’re lost or if you need some help.
Getting into the night life it is very easy too – often young people sit outside the main Piazza drinking and chatting, involving those who are visiting Sicily.
Certainly Sicily is a land that continues to fascinate and engage travelers.
