SICILY itinerary -- need help with finalizing details

Jump to last reply

Our one week in Sicily itinerary is finally set for the last week in June -- flights arranged, hotels booked, car rented! Thanks to everyone for the planning advice!

2 nights in Taormina
2 nights in Panarea
2 nights at Locanda COS winery near Ragusa
1 night in Siracusa

Now a few questions...

1. For our full day in the Ragusa area -- should we visit Ragusa or Modica? And we'd like to spend some time at a nice beach -- not too crowded, but with facilities/food.

2. I do need a recommendation for where to stop for lunch one day -- we arrive in Milazzo (from Panarea) at noon and will drive south to Piazza Armerina to see the Villa Romana de Casale on our way to COS. I had hoped to eat lunch at Al Fugher near there, but I realize it's 2.5 hours from Milazzo! So will be starved by 2:30... Not sure if we should get something in Milazzo? Or stop somewhere else on the way...
Also -- there seem to be two routes -- going west thru Cefalu and east thru Messina. The western route takes about 20 min longer, but would be worth if there's an interesting stop for lunch -- maybe Cefalu?

3. please let me know your NOT TO BE MISSED activities or restaurants. Food is especially important.

Thanks a million!
Dina
