Sicily Itinerary for May-June 2016-comments please!

Jump to last reply

Based on reading trip reports and posts here and on Trip Advisor, I've come up with an itinerary and booked hotels for a trip my DH and I will be taking in May-June 2016. I know its 6 months out, but its so much fun to plan. We like good food, easy hiking, history and independent exploring...so Sicily seems perfect. Some of the hotels are higher than we would usually spend, but its my 60th birthday celebration. We would appreciate any suggestions or comments!

5/23 arrival @ Catania Airport, transfer to Taormina
5/23-5/26 3 nights @ Villa Ducale in Taormina without a car euro 879
5/24-long day trip to Stromboli from Taormina (we'd love to spend overnight, but not this trip---just want a taste...)
5/26-to airport, pick up car, tour Etna, overnight near Etna (any suggestions?)
5/27-on the way to Modica, tour Siracusa
5/27-5/29 2 nights Palazzo Failla in Modica
5/28 tour baroque towns- Ragusa, Noto
5/29 drive to Piazza Armerina, tour Villa Romana del Casale, one night @ Villa Athena in Agrigento
5/30 tour Valley of the Temples, drive to Menfi
5/30-6/2 3 nights @ La Foresteria Planteta in Menfi
5/31 tour Selinunte
6/2 drive to Palermo Airport, drop off car
6/2-6/5 3 nights @ B&B Della Vittorie in Palermo with day trips to Erice and Segesta, Monreale, maybe Cefalu
fly out of Palermo late 6/5

Any reactions? Thanks for all your great posts and trip reports...I've really enjoyed reading them.
