Welcome to Sicily Maggie R!

If you'd like to see Taormina, then stay in Taormina. Early mornings and evenings (once the day trippers have gone) are the most beautiful times of the day in Taormina.

If you rent a car, don't base in Catania - Avoid driving in Catania. If you plan to rent a car, base outside Catania.

Best wishes!

I am renting a car at the Catania airport two weeks from today for 6 days. I have a reservation for an automatic 5 passenger car from Hertz for about $400 US. Is that a good price? I do have an IDP certificate but will there be other charges that Hertz will be charging me. What else do I need to watch out for when renting a car in Sicily? I'll just be travelling around Taormina/Siracusa, small day trips.
