Photography Holidays in Sicily

Sicily is an island of contrasts, mixed cultures and changing landscapes, so there’s nowhere better to hone your photography skills. With its stunning coastal vistas and UNESCO World Heritage towns that are a melting pot of different cultures and architectural styles, you’ll never be short of ‘picture-postcard’ shots that capture the spirit of this exotic island.

Our expert tutors will guide you throughout the week, showing you the best Sicily has to offer and helping to improve your technique, whatever your experience. Add to this some delicious, authentic food prepared by your chef and fantastic local wine – it’s a winning combination!

Villa Accommodation

The villas where our photography holidays in Sicily take place are built in a typical Sicilian style. Chosen because of their locations, they have some beautiful views of the surrounding areas. Within the grounds of the villas, there are beautiful outdoor facilities complete with swimming pools, surrounded by almond and olive trees. After a dip, you can sit back and relax on the terrace. Sicily is an ideal place for a Mediterranean island holiday and our villa is the perfect place to kick back and relax.
