Sicily - Southeastern/Southwest corners in 13 days?

Jump to last reply

I am really hoping to get some answers today and bring this itinerary to end.

Please critic my agenda as much as possible!

Arrival to Catania: June 30
Departure from Rome: July 14

What are we looking for: history, realaxation, good food, beach time, since we will be there on July

Travellers: me, my husband and 19 months old baby

Since we are bringing our toddler with us and this is going to be our first trip with a baby, I am thinking that if we stay in 2 locations each place and do day trips from east and west parts of Sicily... would make it easy on us???

I gathered info and it seems like Ortigia would be a good choice for us to stay.
And it would be a lot cheaper if I reserve an apartment for a week stay... but wouldn't that be too long?

The areas we want to explore from Ortigia are: Noto, Ragusa, Mt. Etna, Taormina, Caltagironi, Piazza Armerina, Modica, Scicli, Lido di Noto...
Does 7 nights seem reasonable?
The highlight of one of the nights is going to be Andrea Bocilli's concert in Syracusa on July 1 - which I am so looking forward to!!!!

Our next base will be Scopello, with day trips to Agigento's Valley of the Temples, Marsala, Ercie and Segesta, Selinunte, Lo Zingaro reserve... golden sand beach at San Vito Li Capo...

We will return to Rome probably a day or 2 earlier before our departure to home.
Do you have any suggestions? should I limit our stay in Sicily to 10 days?
Our budget is set at $6000 - however, I already spent $3000 on airfare...
is $3000 moderate enough for lodging, food and sightseeing?

Thanks and looking forward to your replies.
