Provence and/or Sicily in June?

Jump to last reply

We are in the early stages of planning a 19 day trip in Southern Europe at the beginning of June. Since we are using miles to book flights, we have to make a decision on flights sooner than I would like as I usually like to work out an daily itinerary before booking flights.

Our last trip to Europe was combining Andalusia and the Campania region in Italy, which we loved, and we are considering Provence and Sicily, as there is a Ryanair flight between Catania/Palermo and Marseille. After our time in the Amalfi Coast / Naples / Paestum, we said that if we ever return to Italy, we would go further south. But we have always wanted to go to the south of France as well and cannot seem to give up one over the other.

Do you think it is feasible combining the two regions in a 19 day itinerary and how do they combine together as regions? We are considering splitting the time 11 days in Sicily and 8 days in Provence.

For Sicily, we are considering focusing on 3 regions, the Aeolian islands being one. In Provence, we would fly into Marseille and considering splitting the 8 days between St. Remy and the Luberon.

Would value your thoughts on this rough itinerary.

Though we would like to see both Sicily and Provence, if we ended up going just to France, what region would pair nicely with Provence? From my understanding of the region, it seems like 19 days would be too long for us to spend entirely in Provence, and from what we have read, we are not as enthusiastic about the French Riviera, the logical area to add to Provence. Would much rather substitute the French Riviera for Sicily for the Greek temples, food, and what we found so wonderful about Naples and the Amalfi Coast, but don't want to sell both regions short.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
