Sicily 2 weeks early June - itinerary help

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Sicily the first 2 weeks in June, 15 days, 14 nights. We fly into Catania, and out of Palermo. We'll rent a car when we arrive and drive to Taormina. We'll ditch the car when we end up in Palermo. My husband likes to limit the number of places we stay, but I'm having trouble with that.

Here's where I'm starting but I'd appreciate some help, it's just a starting point.
1-3 Taormina including Mount Etna
4-5 Siracusa
6-7 Modica or Ragusa
then Enna? Villa Romana del Casale
8-9 Arigento
Selinunte?
10-11 Erice
12-14 Palermo

I thought Taormina would be good to start, and also be a base to visit Mt. Etna. Does 3 days sound right (it's really 3 nights, but that's a technicality). Then I don't know about staying in Siracusa (possibly the old city) and then also staying a few nights in Modica or Ragusa. The whole area seems worth spending some time.

Then it's a blur - I want to see Villa Romana del Casale and Agrigento, but I don't want to spend too much time in the car. Do I stay in Enna for a night? What about the west coast, where's the best place to stay? Is Erice a day trip or a place to stay?

And I figure 2-3 nights in Palermo, car-less.

So I guess I'd like some recommendations for the middle part of the trip. I like to keep driving under 3 hours on any particular day, unless there's a single day that requires a push. And I don't like one-nighters in general, but can do one if it helps avoid 7 hours in the car.

I want to get the itinerary settled so I can book accommodations (recommendations on those are welcome too). We've never stayed in an agriturismo, but that might be a nice thing to try in the middle of the trip.

Once accommodations are done, I'll be posting about guides, tours, and other particulars after I've done a bit of research about that. I'm THRILLED we finally booked the airfare, that's always stressful for me (I care about price and where/how long the layovers are, and then my husband wants to know what kind of PLANE we're on!).

So thanks in advance for your always insightful help.

Alice
