Countdown to Italy trip: Tuscany, Sicily, Amalfi Coast and Rome

Jump to last reply

I am doing my final countdown to my Italy trip starting this week-end. Would appreciate if any fodorite has any comments to fine-tune the itinerary. Most information is based on review of trip reports on Fodors and Slow Traveler:

24 Jul Arrive to FCO airport in a.m., rent a car to drive to Montalcino for 2 nights at il Giglio. Explore the town and St Antimo Abbey.
Any recommendation for lunch en-route?
How long is the drive from the airport to Montalcino?

25 Jul Siena in a.m., have lunch, then drive to Le Crete and San Gimi in late afternoon. Dinner there. Drive back to Montalcino

26 Jul San Quirico, Pienza in the morning, lunch and dinner in Montelpuciano, then drive to Orvieto for 2 nights at Locanda Rosati.

27 Jul Cortona in a.m., Orvieto in p.m. Lunch in Cortona/ Orvieto?

28 Jul Drive to FCO by noon, take Windjet to Catania in p.m. Rent a Smart4 to drive to Taormina for 2 nights at Villa Schuler.

29 Jul Isola Bella in a.m., Greek Theater and Castelmola in p.m.
Recommendation for lunch/ dinner?

30 Jul Drive to Siracusa for 1 night, Ortigya Island and Archaeological Park in late p.m. Stay at Limoneto for night. Lunch or dinner in Don Camillo.

31 Jul Drive to Palermo, via Agrigento for Valley of the Temples. How long is the drive from Siracusa to Agrigento and then to Palermo? Stay at Hotel Letizia in Palermo for 2 nights

1 Aug Cefalu in a.m., Montreale in p.m. Try to squeeze some time to have lunch or dinner in il Mulinazzo.

2 Aug Explore Palermo, take evening ferry to Naples

3 Aug Naples. Archaelogical Museum, Santa Lucia, Castel Nuovo etc. stay at Pinto Storey

4 Aug Take the ferry to Capri from Naples. Blue Grotto, Capri Town, Anacapri. Take the ferry to Sorrento for 2 nights in il Nido.

5 Aug Take the bus to Ravello. Have lunch in Cumpa Cosimo. Positano for p.m. Dinner at il Ritrovo

6 Aug Train from Sorrento to Rome. Arrival by noon. Lunch in Abruzzi, hang around Piazza Navona and Spanish Steps in p.m. Dinner in Al 34. Stay at il Piccolo di Piazza del Spagna for 2 nights.

7 Aug Collosseo, Forum in a.m., St Peter Basilica in p.m. Some shopping.

8 Aug Have a look at Trevi Fountain in early a.m., then head for FCO airport for the flight at noon.

As I have been to Rome 12 years ago, I put less emphasis on the capital this time.
