Sleeping

For such a small town, Scopello offers a surprising wealth of accommodation. There are four hotels, a pensione, and a handful of B&Bs in the town centre, complemented by luxury beachfront apartments in the town's old tuna factory and several more B&Bs in the surrounding countryside.

Eating

You'll find a good mix of eateries within 200m of the grand cobbled courtyard at the centre of town – including bakeries, pizzerias and a terrace restaurant serving pricier Sicilian fare with spectacular views.

If you're staying at Pensione Tranchina, be sure to take advantage of its fabulous home-cooked meals. Unfortunately, the pensione doesn't cater for outsiders unless one of its own guests opts to skip dinner; interested nonguests are welcome to check around 5pm to see if a table has opened up.

Drinking & Nightlife

Scopello's compact town centre has a handful of cafes and restaurants with atmospheric cobblestoned terraces, ideal for people-watching while sipping an early evening aperitivo.
