i'm browsing info about sicily now, my friend will come to visit me in malta all the way from japan, so i suggested to have a 3 day trip to sicily too - 29th-31st (come back 31st 16:30 from pozzallo).
so far i've been wondering whether or not it is worth at all to go to catania hoping to have a mt. etna hike, assuming the weather will still be decemberish, soaky and windy, that doesnt seem so great..
i was captivated by the images from the unesco heritage baroque towns - noto, modica (chocolate!), ragusa.. and they seem more less close to one another too, with syracuse not much farther, and fairly close to pozzallo (ferries to and from malta).
so perhaps it'd be just better to stay in this area...
would anyone here have any good words of advice regarding what is worth or not seeing, where it is best to stay perhaps?
you think it'd be possible to catch a train to agrigento to have a peek at the valley of temples and temple of concord?
last but not least, the website of the pozzallo port seems to be indicating there is absolutely no transport from that port save for taxis... huh? really? how do i get to modica or syracuse from there?
