We are a young couple hoping to visit Sicily for 6 days in late May. We plan to fly to Catania airport early Sunday morning, stay there for the night and then move onto Taormina for 2 nights or 3 nights.
We would still have at least 3 more nights in this case. Our questions for the experts are :) :
1. Shall we go to Milazzo and stay there and make daily trips to the volcanic islands from there? Or shall we stay on one of the volcanic islands? Which is more preferable?
2. Or, shall we prefer Cefalu instead?
We look forward to sunbathing, eating and dining and hope to finish most of touristic excursions during the first day in Catania. Which brings us to another question...
Is Sunday a good day to spend in Catania? Or would every place (historic or for shopping etc) be closed on that day?
And, could anyone possibly tell us if this sounds like a nice plan for the trip or shall we consider another formulation.
Thanks a lot!
