1. Comprehensive information in English

In our Nature & Culture category, we have listed the best, most beautiful and most interesting cultural sites and natural park in Sicily. Each attraction has its own page with a description of the site and its history. We have mentioned not only the familiar sights, but also the lesser-known gems and museums, like the Museo MOGAM (Modern Gallery of Arts and Motors) and the Sacrario Pianto Romano.

3. The address and exact location

Of course, also the addresses of the places of interest in Sicily are mentioned on their information pages. However, since addresses in Sicily are difficult to find, or sometimes can’t be found at all (even with a navigation system!), we have also mentioned their exact location. If you visit our website with your smartphone, you can easily navigate to the (entrance of all the) cultural sites, museums and nature parks!

You must be logged in to be able to navigate to all places of interest and other participants. You can login after you’ve ordered an onsicilycard online.

4. The opening hours and entrance fees

We have also listed the opening hours and admission prices of all places of interest in Sicily. If these change, our website will be updated immediately. So we don’t have the limitations of a paper travel guide and can make sure all data stays up-to-date.

NB The opening hours and entrance fees are only visible when you’re logged in. You can login after you’ve ordered an onsicilycard online.

4. Discounts and other perks

If a participant in the category Nature & Culture offers a discount and/or other perks, it will be mentioned at “Special for cardholders” on its information page. So if you don’t see “Special for cardholders” on an information page, you don’t need to show your onsicilycard. Incidentally, many sites and nature reserves are already free to visit or the entrance fees are already low.
