Need help with Sicilian itineraries

Jump to last reply

I just booked tickets to Sicily for next September, and currently in a very early stage of planning, and looking for Fodorites help.
We will be arriving to Catania on Sunday afternoon on September 6, and leaving on Saturday, September, 19 from Malta.
Originally, we did not plan to go to Malta, and wanted to spend two weeks in Sicily. However, I used mileage awards to get tickets, and it did not work our as I planned. I could not find any tickets for a return flight from Sicily, so I purchased a return flight from Malta.
With that, I think we will spend 10.5 days in Sicily and 2 last days on Malta.
I realize, we cannot see everything we would want to see (not even close to that), so for this trip, we would rather focus on old towns, country side, atmosphere, rather than ancient sites. We also would like to see some interior parts of Sicily.
We plan to rent a car, and do not mind changing hotels often.
I drafted my initial plan, and looking for your input, so I can proceed with my further research.
So, here is what I was thinking.
1. Arrive to Catania on Sunday afternoon, rent a car and drive to Taormina
2. Spend Monday, Tuesday at Taormina/Castemola. Not sure if should stay another day to go to Stromboli for a volcano
3. Wednesday - Cefalu
4. Thursday, Friday – Palermo (not sure what to do with my car in Palermo)
5. Saturday – day trip to Trapani/Erice from Palermo (or possibly make this trip a day before, so can catch Saturday market in Palermo)
6. Sunday - Enna
7. Monday - piazza Armerina , Siracusa
8. Tuesday - Siracusa
9. Wednesday – Trip to Noto/Ragusa (?)
10. Thu – morning ferry to Malta (it looks like a ferry from Pozzallo, but not sure where to drop off our car)
11. Fri – Malta
12. Sat – fly home
Please share your thoughts on this!!! What to add, what to skip, any opinions on including Stromboli, or anything else... Thank you!
