The "Perfect week" in Sicily???

Jump to last reply

I will be in Sicily one week in September with my brother and his wife, and since it is likely we won't ever get back, wanted to see/do as much as possible. We're not looking for this to be a relaxing vacation.. rather we're wanting to see as many of the most memorable sites/towns and monuments as possible. We also would love to stay at the nicest hotels and enjoy the best food...so any suggestions here would also be appreciated.

We planned to hire a driver to take us on the 7 day itinerary below. I know it may seem aggressive, but since we won't be doing the driving, hoped this was "doable". I'd appreciate your thoughts on this itinerary, and if I'm missing anything or you have other thoughts on "the perfect week"...I'd love to hear them. Thank you so much!!!
