Although I have been to Sicily five times, I just now became aware of a great way to save money on Sicily travel. The ONSICILY card is an easy way to obtain perks and discounts in Sicily. With over 366 participating providers, the discounts are available in five separate categories:

  • Accommodations
  • Food and drink
  • Workshops and activities
  • Nature and culture
  • Miscellaneous


The card is valid for three weeks and what surprised me was the cost – Only 10 EUROS! This is for one adult and one child under the age of 12. You can add more people to the card as well. Just an example of some of the perks are a free bottle of wine, a typical product, a homemade dessert, a big discount or other perk.

And if you know me, you know that I am always thinking of ways to go back to Sicily. Start planning your next trip with the ONSICILY card.Fruit vendors in Catania

    I want to be in Ragusa, or Cefalu or Erice. Now.

    Oh, tempting. I am hopefully taking students to Italy this May, but it’s likely again to be Venice, Florence and Rome. I am planning a trip on my own though – I have frequent flier miles for a ticket to Europe, and heck – why sit around alone when I could travel!? So maybe in February or March I’ll head out there. You make it sound very enticing.

    Great tips, Margie. You should be counting down the days, hours, minutes to your next big adventure. The more I read over here, the more I feel like I should be planning a trip to Italy. 🙂

    sounds like a great idea. One year I will make it t Italy! I was wondering if yesterday on Sept 21/14 if you came across any people marching for Climate change? It was being done all over the world at the same time!!! I was just looking at pictures showing bits and parts of 1000s of people from 155 cities world wide marching. I know there were some in Italy but not sure if in Sicily area?

    Actually its good to note that most regions in Italy offer their own version of this card, providing great perks wherever you travel.
