Itinerary Comments for 3 Week Sicily Trip

Jump to last reply

So - after 3 year's delay due to work and family, I finally get to make this long-anticipated trip to Sicily! I like a mix of cities and countryside, ruins and history, great food and wine and fantastic scenery. Planning for end of April and beginning of May, probably flying in/out of Palermo, but can consider open jaw with Catania if the itinerary order is shuffled.

I would really appreciate the Fodorites' input, especially on drive times, and unrushed sightseeing. After 3 previous trips to Italy, I am finally slowing down!

Nt 1 - Scopello
Nt 2 - Scopello - hike thru Zingaro Park
Nt 3 - Erice - wander Erice
Nt 4 - Erice - visit Trapani and pick up car?
Nt 5 - Agrigento - visit Segesta & Selinute, Ercola if time?
Nt 6 - Agrigento - temples and arch museum
Nt 7 - visit Villa Casale & Castigirone (SP?), ceramics - stay or continue to Ortygia?
Nt 8 - Ortygia - return car
Nt 9 - Ortygia - bus to Modica/Ragusa
Nt 10- Ortygia
Nt 11 - Ortygia
Nt 12 - Taormina
Nt 13 - Lipari - ferry from Milazzo, aliscafi if running
Nt 14 - Lipari - night boat tour to see Stromboli
Nt 15 - Lipari - visit Vulcano
Nt 16 - Lipari - visit Salina
Nt 17 - Lipari
Nt 18 - Palermo
Nt 19 - Palermo - Monreale
Nt 20 - Palermo - Cefalu maybe
Nt 21 Palermo
Fly home

Questions:

Is it possible to bus to Scopello from the Palermo airport without having to go to Trapani? Checked the Segesta bus but could not find a direct route.

Is it possible to drive from Trapani, visit Segesta, Selunite and still drive to Agrigento before dark? Too much?

Was going to stay at "bobthenavigator's agritourismo" near Piazza Amerina after visiting the mosaics and ceramics, but since his visit years ago it gets lots of bad reviews so it's out. Can I continue on to Ortygia or is this too much driving for one day?

Should I go from Agrigento to Modica and stay there 1 or 2 nts and return the car there before bus/train to Ortygia?

Must I ferry back to Milazzo from Lipari, or did I see a ferry from Lipari to Palermo? Don't know if it runs in May?

Taormina lodging is a problem. So expensive for the good views. Hate resorts, should I skip it? Didn't care much for Capri....

Thanks in advance for your input!
