Planning for Palermo.

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our third trip to Sicily -- this time mostly focusing on the western side of the island. We will be traveling in late June and I think I have our itinerary set, but even after reading a lot of other people's questions and trip reports -- i still have questions...

Here's the plan:
Palermo - Palco Room&Suites - 2 nights
Erice - Residence San Martino - 1 night
Menfi - La Foresteria Planeta Estate - 3 nights
Linguaglossa - Villa Neri Resort -- 3 nights (staying here, on the northern slopes of Etna for wine tasting)

PALERMO QUESTIONS:
1. When leaving Palermo, we are renting a car on a Monday morning at Avis on via crispi (yes, i know many of you cringe at the thought, but we've done a lot of driving in Italian cities and are ok with it) and hope to drive to the Monreale Cathedral on our way of town. Does anyone have any parking tips for the cathedral? We will then be heading straight to Erice. (Unless we should stop somewhere special along the way for lunch??)

2. We're thinking about taking the 1 hour train ride to Cefalu on a Sunday afternoon (like 2ish) to take a stroll and see the town. Not sure if it's worth it? Any recommendations on what to do there? Maybe just go to the beach?

GREEK TEMPLE QUESTION:
On the way to Menfi, we can stop at Segesta, and when we're in Menfi, we have close access to Selinute and Agrigento. I'm not sure if we want to see all three, but maybe it's worth it to do so. Perhaps those of you have been to all three would be kind enough to provide some advice?

PIAZZA ARMERINA QUESTION:
We will have a long drive from Menfi to Mt. Etna, and hoped to break it up with a stop at Piazza Armerina for visit to the museum and a nice lunch. Is this going to be crazy in late June? We really want to see the mosaics...

MT ETNA QUESTION:
Not a lot of info out there about people visiting the wineries on the northern slopes, but any insight/tips would be GREATLY appreciated!

RESTAURANT QUESTION :
Have a favorite in one of these places? Please share!!

Grazie mille!
