Sicily in the fall

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are palnning a trip to Sicily in September or October. In recent years, we have picked one destination and stayed there for 2-3 weeks. However, after much discussion ( here on the Forum and with friends), we now realize that we need to stay in probably 3 places. We want to see the sites and ruins, but also like to absorb the culture and atmosphere. We love the idea od spending time in the small fishing villages. Larry speaks Italain. We will probaly fly into Palermo and out of Catania.

Here are some of my thoughts. I am thinking of first staying in Palermo for 2-3 nights, and then, renting a car and traveling east and south, maybe staying in one or two places along the way. After about a week, would it make sense to rent an apartment in Syracusa or somewhere nearby. After that, we could travel north, see Etna and Taormina and then, fly out of Catania. We woudl be in sicily 2-3 weeks. Does this itinerary make sense? Any ideas?

I have a few questions to begin this planning. Is Septemeber too hot to visit Sicily? We are in our late 60's and I increasingly find extreme temperatures difficult. By that, I mean, over 85 or so. Would October be a better time to travel.

We would love recemmendations on places to stay in any of the areas mentioned. We love to rent small apartments or cottages, but if they are not available, we tend to prefer B&B's or atmospheric inns over large hotels. We prefer staying in places that either offer dinner or places in towns with restaurants that we can walk to. In the past, we have rented in Bonnieux, France, ouside of Montepulciano, Italy, and in Sarlat, Franc, all of which we loved.

Thanks for any help you can give us.
-Margie and Larry ( we are both justretired)
