Help! Sicily torrential rain

9 replies

We're in Sicily with DC 9 and 11 and it has rained all week. Does anyone have any ideas for things to do indoors there? I've been trying to find out whether there's something to do (east coast Sicily - Siracusa, Noto way) but am drawing a blank. Everything seems to be about being outdoors - which is great except when it is raining all the time and they're fed up of it.

Cooking workshops? Trampolining/climbing/bowling/ aquariums? - can't find anything googling and locals must have places to take kids when it's bad weather!

Hopefully someone will reply soon but in the meantime try google translating "indoor attractions in x city" in Italian and then google that, there should be some stuff coming up.

Oh how awful.

I stayed in Ortigia a few years ago and it was fabulous.

I think you will find indoor activities very thin on the ground. It rarely rains persistently and they're just not a thing. Even in the north of Italy where my family are from, it was very hard to find soft play or anything when mine were little. Possibly a chocolate class at Modica (it's very famous for its chocolate) or a more general cookery class but they'd be pricey.

You have my sympathies. Noto is gorgeous in the sunshine. Sad

I recommend you post on this Trip Advisor page usually some locals are present in them and can hopefully offer some advice

I think the emergency weather warning for Sicily ends today- (I'm in Puglia) so things should be starting to get back to normal.
