Please Help with Itinerary for Sicily and Malta

Jump to last reply

We had to cancel our trip to Egypt, so I am trying to quickly put together a trip to Sicily and Malta for March/April. We are early retirees with a Slow Travel style. We love history, art, and wine.

We would prefer to take public transportation and like to establish ourselves in a home base and do day trips. Although we would love to visit the Aeolian Islands, we will be arriving too early in the season. I had also hoped to see the mosaics at Villa Del Casale, but since the villa is currently closed, I eliminated it too.

We plan to spend 3 weeks in Sicily and 1 week in Malta. This is my first draft of an itinerary. Really appreciate your help.

Overnight Ferry from Naples to Palermo
Palermo (5 nights) -- includes day trips to Monreale and Cefalu
Train to Trapani
Trapani (5 nights) -- includes day trips to Erice, Segesta, Selinunte, and Marsala
Bus to Agrigento
Agrigento (2 nights) -- includes Valley of the Temples and Scala dei Turchi
Train to Catania
Catania (2 nights) -- includes day trip to Mt. Etna
Bus to Syracuse
Syracuse (5 nights) -- includes day trips to Ragusa and Palazzolo Acreide
Bus to Catania for Ferry to Malta
Valletta (4 nights) -- includes day trip to Mdina
Gozo (3 nights)
