Thoughts on honeymoon in Sicily and Calabria

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone

We are currently contemplating our honeymoon this September/early October. It will be for almost three weeks.

At the moment we are thinking Sicily and Calabria – what do people think of this option? Initial thoughts based on my limited research produced something like this:

Fly into Catania or Palermo.

Taormina (6 days);
Aeolian Islands (6 days);
Tropea (8 days – use as a base and do day trips by rental car).

We are conscious of not wanting to move around too much. Our interests are nice beaches, picturesque, non-touristy villages, food and wine and some nightlife (Catania, Reggio Calabria??).

I am aware that we are not staying anywhere in the West of Sicily – should we try and make it over there? It is likely that we will be flying in to Palermo so perhaps it would make sense to start with 3 or 4 nights on the West and then cut back a night for each of our other locations. If so, where would people recommend in the West?

I believe the weather should still be in the mid-20s in late September and early October – is this the case?

Thanks a mil in advance!!
