Rome, Amalfi and Sicily in 21 days

Jump to last reply

My husband & I are travelling to Italy early May and I am trying to determine my itinerary for Rome, Amalfi & Sicily. I've read numerous guide books and blogs regarding recommendations, but none address one of my issues. We really aren't the biggest fans of cities or museums. My daughter & I visited Spain last fall & our favorite place was Ronda, though we also enjoyed the older central area of Sevilla. We also like to hike. We thought 3 days in Rome, 5 days on the Amalfi coast and 9-10 days in Sicily.

Although Palermo sounds interesting, I am getting the impression that we would not enjoy this. Any thoughts? For Sicily, we would like to try to climb Etna, stay in Ortigia, travel to Agrigento and if possible get to Erice. Is this too much ?

For the Amalfi coast, I had planned 2-3 nights in Sorrento, for greater ease to Pompeii & Capri, but now I'm thinking that we may like to spend a night on the island, or on Ischia.

Any advice would be appreciated.
