Sicily & Southern Italy Itinerary help

Jump to last reply

Thank you, all who helped with the Puglia portion (I'll give you a more detailed plan later). After dropping my Grandmother at the Bari airport on Dec. 5th I am off for another 3 weeks with a friend. Here's what I'm thinking for a very rough outline:

Day 13 Fly to Taormina Siciliy
Day 14 Taormina Siciliy
Day 15 Cefalù Siciliy
Day 16 Cefalù Siciliy
Day 17 Segesta Siciliy
Day 18 Segesta Siciliy
Day 19 Segesta Siciliy
Day 20 Modica Siciliy
Day 21 Modica Siciliy
Day 22 Noto Siciliy
Day 23 Noto Siciliy
Day 24 Siracusa Siciliy
Day 25 Siracusa Siciliy
Day 26 Siracusa Siciliy
Day 27 Fly to Naples
Day 28 Naples
Day 29 Naples
Day 30 Amalfi Coast
Day 31 Amalfi Coast
Day 32 Cilento Coast
Day 33 Cilento Coast **CHRISTMAS DAY***
Day 34 Cilento Coast
Day 35 Maratea (or somewhere near?)
Day 36 Maratea
Day 37 Back to Naples, fly to Rome, return home

There are infinite options, I know. I had thought I'd go to Calabria, but it just is not sounding appealing in the middle of winter.

Questions:
-Do I drop Maratea/surroundings and add days elsewhere?
-Has anyone been in these areas around Christmas, and if so, where would you suggest being for those notoriously dead days? (Also, what's the food situation on Christmas Eve, Christmas, and St. Stephens?)
-Are any of these towns too buttoned up for winter? Bigger cities will, of course, be lively, but I'm worried about Amalfi/Cilento. Will there be restaurants and hotels open in December in Amalfi and Cilento?

About us: pair of high energy women in our early/mid-30's, very fit and as happy to walk for hours as we are to sit and read while watching the passeggiata, priorities are food, wine, and, beauty, we'll have a car and like a good road trip.
