what is the distance from east to west coast sicily driving?

Hi,

we are thinking of basing ourselves in taormina for a 10 day holiday, but we have heard there are lovely beaches/towns on the west coast. are these places driveable for a day trip? is taormina a good base?

how many miles or time wise would it take to drive accross from east to west coast?

thanks

Hi,

Taormina would be a good base for exploring Sicily’s east coast, but not for day trips to the west.

If you were to drive the fastest roads, the autostradas, it would take four hours to drive each way from Taormina to Trapani - You could put your time to better use exploring eastern Sicily!

Best Wishes!
