5-7 days in Sicily

We will be visiting Southern Sicily in September on a biking holiday and we have an extra 5/7 days that we can spend on the island . We have been to Taormina and Mount Etna on a previous vacation so now we want to travel to Agrigento, Erice , Marsala and Cefau and fly out of Palermo or Trapani. We think that renting a car is probably the best idea but are struggling with the order in which to visit all of the above without spending too much time travelling.

Hi. You could spend a few days in Trapani, a good base to visit Erice, Segesta and Marsala. Then you could drive to Agrigento (1 night), from there to Cefalù and back to Palermo or Trapani.

Or, after Trapani, you could base a few days in Palermo (without car). Palermo is a good base to visit Agrigento and Cefalù by public transport..

Welcome to Sicily Finnsmom!

Where in Southern Sicily?

Where does your tour end when you would begin your independent travel?

Would you see Agrigento via the tour?

You could divide your time between Trapani and Palermo, and then see Erice and Marsala from Trapani, and Agrigento and Cefalù from Palermo.

If you decide to hire the hire, only hire the car during your time in Trapani, then return the car at Palermo's airport, and use public transport during your time in Palermo.
