6 weeks in Italia!

Jump to last reply

So next August I will be travelling to Italy alone (eek!) I will be flying into Rome and right now am planning to travel down to Catania where I have been welcomed to stay with a dear friend and his family for my trip.

I am a uni student and on a budget and can think of nothing better than getting to know a country by becoming a part of it in such a fantastic way. I plan on spending a month of my adventure here but to be honest, I do not know a lot about Sicily and many things I haveread say it is gritty and harsh.... so what is it like? Is it beautiful and full of history like the rest of Italy with lots to see?

Also, What are some *must see's* while I am in Sicily?

Finally, with my last two weeks I want to travel north and split my time between Rome and Florence. How many days would you recommend in each? Or any other suggestions? day trips?

I know I am asking a lot but I am excited!!

Thank you! :-)
