Sicily itinerary proposal

Jump to last reply

OK - we have only 7 night/6 days during Easter. We land and depart from Palermo, are renting a car, and walking on Etna is on the "must do" list. (I had a more leisurely plan, staying at the western end of the island, until my friend told me that!) Taormina is also on her list - walking the coastal trail of Zingaro is on mine - opposites!

My thoughts - we land 10pm 13th April Palermo Airport - bus to Palermo and stay there 2 nights, one full day for exploring.

15th - bus back to airport and collect rental car (it's booked already) - drive to Nicolosi at the base of Etna. Stay three nights.

16th - go up Etna. Have a tentative booking with Gruppo Guide Etna Nord for a 6-7 hour trip from Sapienza, including the summit craters.

17th - day trip to Taormina, returning to Nicolosi.

I chose Nicolosi for a base for 3 nights to give us a reserve day for Etna, given uncertainties with weather, snow and volcanic activity. Also I thought it might be easier with the car to be staying in a smaller place, and a geologist friend who was based there once says it's quite a pretty town.
With regards Gruppo Guide Etna Nord - this is the company that has communicated best with me hence favouring them.

18th - drive west to Scopello, stay 2 nights.

19th - walk in Zingaro Natural Park, relax.

20th - we have all day, before flying out from Palermo at 10.30pm. (Either here, or on the way from Palermo, we need to factor in Monreale.)

I know there are so many places we are missing but also we don't want to be tearing around driving/sightseeing/finding our way/ticking off historic places every day! We want to relax, enjoy the food and each other's company as well as getting a 'taste' of Sicilia.

Does this make sense? And if so:
- any thoughts for comfortable/clean/friendly budget -ish accommodation in each place?
- best roads/highways to take?

Thanks in anticipation!
