Wintering in Sicily or southern mainland Italy

Greetings,

we are planning to haul out this European winter (Oct 16 - Apr 17) either in Sicily or southern mainland Italy. Ragusa looks like a good choice, but we were wondering if anyone else has any advice on either Ragusa or a better alternative.

Many thanks.

Re: Wintering in Sicily or southern mainland Italy

We wintered in Ragusa in 2014 and had a great time. It's a real liveaboard community there so events and activities were planned all the time.

Our son, 8yo at the time, still speaks fondly of it.

Re: Wintering in Sicily or southern mainland Italy

So you stayed onboard all winter in the marina? I'm kicking around the idea of taking in the AC in Bermuda next June then spending the summer in the Med. naturally I would need to either winter aboard or fly home. This is a useful thread for me. cheers!

If living aboard, Ragusa is a good community. The yard is not so perfect. If not living aboard, you might consider Dubrovnik. On the east coast of mainland Italy there are a couple of marinas desperate for business, new but empty so you might be able to do a deal.
