I'm planning an 8 night trip (total 8.5 days) in Sicily for Mid-May. I wanted to see your take on a my initial stab at an itinerary and modes of transportation. Anything helps thank you!
Day 1) Arrive Palermo airport mid-afternoon (stay in Palermo)
Day 2) Palermo
Day 3) Monreale, Erice (stay in Erice)
Day 4) Erice, Agrigento (stay in Agrigento)
Day 5) Agrigento, Siracusa / Ortigia (stay in Siracusa)
Day 6) Siracusa
Day 7) Either Siracusa, Mt Etna in the AM, Taormina in the PM (stay in Taormina)
Day 8) Head to Cefalu
Day 9) Cefalu to Palermo (and home)
I am thinking of renting a car on my way out of Palermo and then returning back to Palermo to fly out. I am American and have driven in Santorini, but am hoping that Sicilian driving isn't too crazy! (I'm not amazing at directions, are there GPS options?)
What do you think I should add/take away from the itinerary? Is it too rushed?
Thanks in advance!
