SICILY:The Second Time Around in 22Days for 55th Anniversary !!!

Jump to last reply

With wonderful impulsivity ,as survivors of a recent move from our beloved row house to an apartment,we have decided to realize a long-held dream and give ourselves a slow trip through Sicily,visiting all the places we did not visit last time,ten years ago,and lingering…..yes lingering,where we want to spend more time !!Miraculously,we were able to snag a R/T to Rome using miles,just a few days ago and I need to move quickly to secure accommodations.What follows is our approximate itinerary,wide open for adjustments.The pressure is on to secure lodgings,and I have already had great luck in getting us 5 nights at Forestiere in Menfi.Such luck !! I anticipate a greater challenge with other reservations and ask for your suggestions/inspired ideas:
13 APRIL: Arrive Rome;pick up car and drive to Orvieto for 2-3 nights.Hotel Duomo;Palazzo Piccolomini or…..??? Hotels;restaurants??
15 APRIL: Depart Orvieto for Misia..or??? for 2 days enroute to ARGENTARIO via Pitigliano;Manciano;Magliano.Two or 3 nights Orbetello or other.
19 APRIL:Depart Rome to either Palermo or Trapani.Will secure this flight tomorrow.Trapani would be ideal.We will pick up rental car and head for Scopello and the Zingaro nature reserve and gorgeous views,staying 2 nights at Pensione Trancini,I hope.If not…???
21 APRIL:Depart SCOPELLO;leave car in Trapani and ferry to Favignano for over-night.
22 APRIL: Return to Trapani and proceed to Menfi and la Forestiere for 5 nights
27 APRIL: Drive to MODICA for 3 nights.Stay????
30 APRIL: SIRACUSA/ORTIGIA for 5 nights:meeting up with our son for 3 or 4 days of wineries,good food;coastal villages;Stay …..???Suggestions?
5 MAY : Drive to Catania for flight to Rome and home.
We will spend our days exploring with Michelin in hand, and so appreciate your suggestions of places off the beaten track;restaurants and experiences you wished you'd had time for,or would like to do again.
