Sicily itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to be in Sicily for 10 nights in April. We are flying into Catania and flying out of Palermo. So far, our itinerary is as follows:

2 nights Catania with possible side trip to Mt. Etna
1 night Taormina
2 nights in Syracuse, side trip to Noto

Last 3 nights in Palermo, with side trips, but not yet sure where. I know some will say this is too much time in Palermo but we want to not change hotels almost every night.

We have two more nights to play with between Syracuse and Palermo and I'm feeling somewhat overwhelmed as there are so many places to see. We are interested in archaeological sites and ruins, and quaint medieval towns.

Any suggestions are welcome for both the two nights and for side trips from Palermo. We have a very early flight from Palermo to Rome so we really will only have 2 full days there. We are not against renting a car, but we will do it once there as we will probably take the train from Catania to Taormina, and then to Syracuse. Is it feasible to rent a car in Syracuse and drop it off in Palermo, without making the reservation in advance?

Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions. I already can tell this will not be our only trip to Sicily!
