Based on previous feedback and reading this forum, I've come up with an itinerary for a trip in April.
4 nights in Castellamare
3 nights in Agrimento
3 nights in Siracusa
3 nights in Taormina
And now I'm looking for some suggestions for the last 5 nights before heading back to Palermo. The Aeolian Islands have me intrigued and was wondering how feasible this would be:
Take a morning ferry to Stromboli to do the volcano climb. One or two nights on Stromboli?
Go to Lipari, spend 3 nights there, with day trips to Vulcano and Salina.
Should I book lodging ahead of time, or will there be plenty of options on arrival? I would like to stay in a room with a balcony with nice views, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
