I am planning a trip to Europe for May/ June 2014.
I have set aside 8 days to see Sicily. I understand from reading a mountain of posts, that this is only enough time to see a little. I have chosen to see the east coast. My plan is to fly into Catania from Naples. Alitali would have us arriving around 4pm(16.00) I would like to organise a private transfer to our accommodation.
Can you recommend anyone in particular?
I am thinking of staying in Taormina, preferably in an apartment, we like the space and the amenities, for 4 days and possibly Siracusa for 4 days?
My questions are, in what order should we see these towns?
Is the breakup of days right, or should I spend more time in one particular town for sightseeing?
Can you recommend any particular accommodation? The apartment I liked in Taormina appears to be fully booked already? Our budget is around 200/250E per night
We plan to fly from Catania to Bari.
I have researched flights. If we fly Blu Express it appears to be more direct and convenient. Does anyone have any knowledge of the reliability of this airline?
Am I best to fly Alitlia via Rome, this flight will take 3hrs 30 mins for safety and reliability?
I look forward to any help that comes my way and thank you in advance.
