3 weeks in Sicily itinerary

Jump to last reply

After much deliberation, we decided not to include Naples in our 2016 visit to Sicily because we would do either one or the other an injustice by cutting our time there short.
We have travelled to Rome several times and also visited Orvieto and Tivoli. Florence, Venice, Pisa, Genova, CT, Padua, the three lakes, Verona, Vicenza and Milan, Siena Assisi, Capri, Amalfi and Paestum have also been visited on previous trips. We are not beach people and do not wish to spend long hours on the beach. DH has a penchant for bookshops and has to stop at each and every one even if he does not purchase anything. I am a jewellery crafter and so am on a look out for unusual components (was thoroughly disappointed in Venice at the plethora of Chinese made articles being sold as being made in Venice and Murano).

Our current itinerary (not yet fixed in concrete - but the flight in and out will be booked in two days) is:

5/4/2016 Melbourne – Rome via Dubai or Abu Dhabi (21+ hours)
