Narrowing in on Sicily itinerary--would love input

Jump to last reply

We have 15 nights in Sicily. We would like to stay 2 nights most places to avoid so much moving around -- though there is still a lot of it here... If we took out one stop to lighten up the traveling, which should it be?

PALERMO Arrive late morning – hotel for 3 nights
Day trip to Monreale
?Given shortness of time should we just skip Cefalu? If we added a night there, could we drive from there to Trapani (via Segesta?

PALERMO (OR CEFALU) TO TRAPANI-ERICE 2 nights
Arrive late afternoon (after potential Segesta visit)
? Is this stop “worth it”?
?Should we stay in Erice or Trapani?

DRIVE TRAPANI TO AGRIGENTO 2 nights
Visit Selinunte on the way
?This is a long drive (85 miles or so) – how is the road?
--We could stay one night at Mazara del Vallo but trying to avoid 1 night stays

DRIVE AGRIGENTO TO PIAZZA ARMERINA 2 nights
Perhaps this is our 1 night stop? How long does it take to see the Villa?

PIAZZA ARMERINA TO 1 OF BAROQUE TOWNS 2 nights
Visit Caltagirone on the way?
Which town do you recommend for our stay?
Is it easy to visit others from one of them?

BAROQUE TOWN TO SIRACUSA 3 nights (Ortygia
It looks like we will not make it to Taormina. How feasible is it to visit Mt. Etna from Siracusa? Is the Etna trip a MUST? (We kind of liked the idea of kicking back here after all the moving around!)
-- We do have one remaining night so could make that in Catania (where we leave early in the AM the next day) and do Etna from there. Advice?

I really appreciate input from Fodorites so please feel free to give me your unvarnished opinions!
Thanks in advance....
