Where To Stay – which town/area? Palermo , Sicily’s capital, is an unforgettable spot. The ancient port city of Catania is of a similar ilk (though on the other side of the island). Syracuse is the ideal spot for history-lovers: visit the Greek theatre, Ear of Dionysus cave or the Museo Archeologico Regionale Paolo Orsi.
Taormina-Catania is fine for the visit of Taormina, Siracusa, Noto, Modica, Ragusa and the Vendicari Natural Park, Palermo is a better base for places more in the east, indipendently of the season.
While Sicily is full of beauty everywhere you look, you’ll find many of its best treasures in the eastern part of the island. The east is home to active volcanoes, ancient ruins, Baroque cities, and gorgeous beaches, not to mention fabulous food and world-famous wine.
