Help With 8/9 Night Itinerary Sicily

Jump to last reply

I have been looking at posts regarding Sicily itineraries and have done a first draft. I know it needs some tweaking, and I know we don't have enough time to do Sicily justice.

We are flying into Rome on April 7, arriving at noon and then plan on booking a flight to Catania, arriving in the late afternoon. We will arrange a transfer from the airport to Siracusa where we will stay for 3 nights.
Thursday, April 7-10

On Sunday, April 10 pick up rental car in Siracusa and drive to Piazza Amerina for one night taking in the Villa Romano and Caltagirone.

Monday, April 11 drive to Agrigento for one night

Tuesday, April 12 drive from Agrigento to Palermo, perhaps stopping at the Planeta Forestiere Resort for lunch or stopping in Sciacca to see the city and have lunch. Drop off rental car at Palermo Airport and taxi into the city.
Tuesday, April 12 to Friday, April 15 Palermo for three nights.

On Friday, April 15 fly from Palermo to Rome for three nights before our international flight on Sunday, April 18.
Friday, April 15-18 Rome for three nights

I am purposely avoiding Taormina and the Baroque towns as my husband has difficulty with stairs, and all these cities would be a challenge for him. Of course, with such a short time it was easy to eliminate these places.

I could eliminate Rome for one night and add a ninth night to Sicily if anyone thinks I need to add a night to the Sicily itinerary. We love Rome but have been there very recently.

Last questiion. Will my husband be able to see Monreale with his mobility issues? It seems the only way to view the cathedral and the mosaics are climbing up over 100 stairs. Is this correct?

Thanks for any help!!
