Me & my husband are heading to Sicily, our traditional yearly romantic escape to celebrate our anniversary.
We are Maltese, and this is not our first trip to Sicily, we have stayed in both Taormina and Catania, visiting mostly the Catanese and Enna regions on several occasions.
We have an opening for a flight to Catania on the 27th June (4pm) with a return flight on Sunday 1st July (10pm) & we will transit by public transport mostly (i.e no rental car).
We first intended to stay in Agrigento, visiting that region, but now we are opting for a stay in Siracusa, visiting both Siracusa and Ragusa regions. We really wished to combine Agrigento and Siracusa but as of the traveling involved we will opt to leave Agrigento for another time, maybe with flights to Trapani.
Our hotel options in Siracusa are down to two, Mediterraneo hotel or the Principe di Fitalia which seems the nicest but is distant from the center. It does provide free shuttle services to the central points of interest. We are thinking of going for it. Do you think it is a good option? (both hotels have good reviews)
Now, with a stay in Siracusa, can you advise an itinnerary, with 'must see' sites (historic and archeological) Siracusa and nearby villages, like Noto and Ragusa, which we've heard are worth a visit too. We are sea lovers, so an advice to a good beach would be welcome. If you could advise a good (GOOD!) restaurant for our special anniversary dinner it would be wonderfull.
We are in our 30s so we dont mind some extra effort and activities (hubby is an avid diver).
