Eastern Sicily -- please help with planning!

Jump to last reply

We are planning to spend a week exploring eastern Sicily in late June. It will be our first trip to Sicily! I am thinking to base ourseleves in two places -- Taormina and Syracusa -- but I have some questions I was hoping to get answered to help my planning.

First of all, i'm not sure if I should add a third base in the Val di Noto. Instead of doing 4 nights/3 nights in the two places, maybe doing 3 nts, 2 nts, 2 nts. Would you recommend staying overnight in Ragusa or Noto?

More importantly, what are your absolute favorite things (restaurants, day trips, hotels, sites, or beaches) about this area?

We're a couple in our late forties, traveling by rental car, and are mostly interested in great food, beautiful architecture, charming villages, great beaches, and history/culture.

Thanks so much!
