Sicily itinerary critique - your advice please!

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am planning a week-long trip to Sicily for myself and my family (including grandparents and parents). I would love some feedback from those who know the distances and roads quite well and can give feedback as to whether this is a doable, realistic itinerary. We'll be in a hotel in Palermo for 3 nights first, then in a house south of Catania for 7 nights, then the last night is up in the air - either a hotel in Catania or Palermo (depending on which city we decide to fly out of).

WED May 22: arrive Palermo
THURS-FRI: sightsee within Palermo
SAT May 25:
- morning: rent car, drive to Monreale, visit Duomo (I am estimating we could be done by noon?)
- afternoon: drive to Cefalu, have lunch, see cathedral, then continue to east coast (**any town or sight we would have time to stop in on the way? I know we'd be driving through the Madonia mountains)
- 6pm: arrive at house
SUN May 26: explore area, relax at the house (around Brucoli)
MON May 27: Piazza Armerina (anything we could add on to this day trip? Other things to see in the area?)
TUES May 28: Siracusa day trip
WED May 29: day trip to Agrigento
THURS May 30: day trip to Taormina (is this worth it? should we plan something else for 1/2 day?)
FRI May 31: no agenda / hang around house
SAT Jun 1: either drop of car in Catania and sight see in Catania, OR drive to Palermo (either via Selinunte and western wine country, or via Erice & Segesta)
SUN Jun 2: fly out

Is there anything we are egregiously missing from our itinerary? Or anything that clearly won't work or will be too rushed?

Many thanks for your expert advice!
