Sicily First Visit in September/8 nights

Jump to last reply

Visiting Sicily in September, decided to travel independently as I prefer having more time in places while not being rushed by Tour. Have traveled independently many times and enjoyed so much more.

Got flight direct from Dublin to Catania with return from Catania into Paris CDG.
Plan dividing my time staying in two places, Taorima and Siracusa. Looking for hotels and need to be sure I have picked good locations to be able to enjoy historical sites and take few day trips to enjoy areas along coastline. I enjoy walking and will use public transportation so need hotels that are central to bus and train stops. Have read few trip reports on message boards so hoping to see many of the areas that are recommended. including Agrigento.
Also, would I be better off using just one base if the SE areas are reachable on day trips and not too distant.

If I begin the trip from Taorima which is not far from Catania airport, will I have problem getting to Catania airport from Siracusa to catch an early flight leaving at 9am?? Is distance from Siracusa to airport further, and if so would I be better starting trip from Siracusa? Need to know the distance from Siracusa if someone is familiar with public transportation to Catania airport.

Also any help with hotels so that I can check prices. Hope to receive as much help as possible as I look forward to a lovely trip. Thank you.
