We will arrive in Catania on a late Saturday afternoon flight and leave the following Saturday afternoon. We would like to use Taormina and Siracusa as bases to do our touring from but not quite sure how to split it up. We want to go up to Mt Etna, do the small UNESCO towns, go to Agrigento amongst other ventures. I welcome any advice--and any other things you might recommend that we do from these areas. We will have a car.
I am also looking to book either the San Domenico Palace or Hotel El Jebel in Taormina based on friend's experiences. Any thoughts? We like to be able to walk in town --I'm not fond of downtime when on vacation!!
