10 days late Sept early Oct

We are 2 active pensioners (last trip self drive in Namibia) proposing to spend 10 days either flying into Catania or Palermo.and then being based in a beachside hotel but giving us the opportunity to hire a car for part of the time to visit nearby sites. Advice as to which flying destination would be best and also hotels. Any other information would be great. Many thanks

Welcome to Sicily GrandadBen!

Consider Cefalù if arriving in Palermo, and Taormina or Marina di Ragusa if arriving in Catania.

You could stay in the historic centre of Cefalù at La Plumeria Hotel, or you could stay along the beach and lungomare at Astro Suite Hotel, Villa Gaia....

In Taormina, you could stay in town above the beach – Villa Schuler, Hotel Taodomus, The Ashbee Hotel....

Or you could stay below town nearer the coast - Panoramic Hotel....

And around Ragusa, you might stay in the town of Ragusa, or you might stay at Marina di Ragusa – A bus connects the town to the beach.


In Ragusa, you could stay in Modern Ragusa nearer public transport (La Dimora di Piazza Carmine), or you could stay in Ragusa’s historic centre, Ragusa Ibla (Hotel Il Barocco).

Best wishes!


Or at Marina di Ragusa, the Bandiera Blu awarded beach resort - La Moresca Maison de Charme, Kamena Residence….
