You can tour Sicily in eight days, even in five, but, if you got time, I recommend not to do it in less than ten days. We spent fifteen days traveling across the island and I missed so many places. Some prefer to start the route clockwise along the coast, some focus on deep Sicily, the mountain villages, less visited and touristy, some other devote a few days to do the islands. Whatever the itinerary chosen, there are places that are a must see.
PALERMO The capital city.
TAORMINA A balcony overlooking the sea
VILLA ROMANA DEL CASALE Supreme example of a luxury Roman villa
SCICLI Charming Baroque town, often off the beaten track, worth visiting
NOTO A stone garden
VALLEY OF THE TEMPLES A historic testimony to Magna Graecia’s presence in Agrigento
ERICE An enchanting medieval hilltop village near Trapani
