Jump to last reply

My wife and I are off to Sicily in 3 weeks and our itinerary is almost done, but need some tips...

Day 1:
Arrival to Catania @7pm. will pick up a car and drive to Taormina.
- Any recos on places to have dinner? (Have heard that everything is closed at night in Taormina)

Day 2:
Hiking in Etna.- Any recommended trails? what is the best choice of place to go in Etna if driving from Taormina...
Then spending late afternoon in Taormina and dinner..

Day 3:
Driving to Palermo: Stop in Castelmola
Afternoon in Palermo

Day 4:
Monreale, catacombs Capuchin, Norman Palace, Mondello beach.

Day 5:
Erice, then Marsala,

Day 6:
Drive to Agrigento..staying in Villa Athenea, hiking/walking along the greek temple, etc...
Would love to pass by Corleone (big fan of Il Padrino!). - is it worth it?

Day 7:
Piazza Amerina, Enna, Caltagirone.
Sleep again in Agrigento.

Day 8:
Drive back to Catania (flight leaves @7pm)
Any recos on places to stop by on the way, or would recommend to spend a few hours in Catania?

Would love to hear your POV on the itinerary as well as any tips on restaurants, places to visit / see or anything!

Thanks a lot!!!
