Sicily, East & West side

Jump to last reply

Hello, we are planning 10 day trip to Sicily middle of August this year. Will be travelling with a toddler. I have a few questions that I need help with before finalising our trip.
Will be spending 5 days in east & 5 days in west

1) Flying into Catania, thinking of picking car up, staying in either Taormina or Siracusa for total 5 days. Thoughts? Not really interested/able to explore volcanos & Greek ruins... after "family" friendly beaches & other sights to see... are day trips to e.g.. Lipari do-able from here? What else is there to do around this side?

2) Will be driving to other side, possibly staying in Tipari, would like to see Erice... and potentially Favignana... how long is the ferry ride? Anything else to see around this side? Will be flying out of Palermo. Should we drop the car off here?

Itinerary will need to be leisurely as it is our first time travelling with a toddler.
Whilst doing research, I have read that quite a few people have been robbed... am starting to worry this island may not be too safe?!

Thanks in advance!
