Sicily experts: I need help!

Jump to last reply

Hi, We'll be going to Sicily the last week of Sept. (following 2 weeks in Corsica and 1 week in Sardinia), arriving at Palermo's airport and I plan to fly out of Catania. I really only wanted to spend about 11 nights in Sicily. I'd really like to see the Aeolian Islands, (4 nights in Salina with a day trip to Panarea/Stromoli), but wonder if that's too much traveling for a short time and would we be better off concentrating on mainland Sicily. We're not big ruin buffs (maybe because we're a little "ruined" out by last trips going to Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu) but think perhaps we should see Agrigento.
My initial plan is 1)fly into Palermo's airport, spend 2 nights, and then take the train to Milazzo and the hydrofoil to Salina, for 4 nights. Return and take train to Taormina for 2 nights. Rent car, and pick a base of either Modica or Siracrusa to see southeastern Sicily. Probably would skip Agrigento then. Fly from Catania to Rome and home.
Any ideas?
