Comment on my Sicily Plan

Jump to last reply

First, thanks for your original responses to my Sicily by train or bus post. Your advice gave a great start for my research. Now, I'd like your comments on my proposed itinerary for 3 weeks in Sicily.

Here's a little background about us - we love to travel independently by train, bus or metro and are never in a hurry to get somewhere when we can both watch the scenery roll by or talk to other passengers. Only rent a car if absolutely necessary. Happy with a 3 or 4 star hotel that is in a safe location that is convenient to public transportation and local restaurants - not looking for luxury (I'm cheap, my husband is not).. We travel light (30" rolling duffels), so only casual clothes - no suits or fancy dresses. Love the casual restaurants that the locals frequent. My husband does not like to change hotels too often to avoid dragging our bags around. We're 65 and very active. Like to be outdoors vs museums. We'll be starting our trip in mid-September.

Planning to fly from Rome to Catania and take day trips. Will split this up to stay again in Catania for return trip to Rome
Taormina - bus or train better?
Mt Etna
Randazzo - bus
Piazza Armenia- bus
Caltagirone - bus or train?
Siracusa - bus or train?
Noto - bus or train?
Enna - train
Messina - train
Malta - is ferry from Catania too crazy an idea?
Ragusa - bus. Would love to stay here and do some day trips but nothing from there looks easy to do

Move on to Palermo and take day trips to:
Argigento bus or train?
Cefalu - train
Patti - train
Monreale - bus
Segesta - train?
Trapani - how to get here??

Well, what do you think. All comments, suggestions, improvements are welcome. A couple of days traveling by car are ok if someone has a good itinerary. Any cities you would drop? Add?
