    We are considering winterising our car in Sicily, i.e. leaving the island in mid-December and coming back in early February. Do you have any suggestions for winter parking or anything else?

    Håkan Jonsson, thank you for writing a comment here! Unfortunately I don't know where you can park your motorhome for the winter. I wouldn't think it's a problem to find a place though, if you ask around.
