I am planning a trip to Sicily with other 2 friends for 6 nights in eastern sicily.
We are flying to Catania next month and we'd like to 1. visit wineries, 2. spend some time at the beach, 3. see some of the historical cities in the area, 4. Maybe a day trip to mount etna too.
We're having a hard time to 1. Decide for our base ( taormina and syracusa?, catania only?, taormina and catania?)
2. Decide if we hire a car or use public transportation (none of us like the idea of visiting wineries and not drinking because of the driving, and some of us are a bit scared of windy roads)
3. Finally, decide for what kind of accomodation. Anyone with airbnb or agriturismo experience in the area?
I would really appreciate any recommendation!
