I've wanted to travel to Sicily for years and I've almost convinced the other half...but where to base ourselves is the £1million question!
We looked at Taormina but central location + pool = pricey and I'm not sure the hotels are nice enough (nice of course but value for money?) compared with other Italian hotels I've stayed in. Happy to be convinced though!
We'd be going for 9 nights (middle of Sept or start of Oct)
Want to spend up to £100 ish a night
Would want to get about on public transport (rather than hiring a car)
Must have a swimming pool
Must be central (i.e. close to restaurants)
Prefer non chain hotels/ones with character but don't mind "new" and "shiny" as long as it's classy.
Definitely want to visit Mt Etna but where else?
Would like to be near a sandy beach if possible.
Would like a room with a good balcony or terrace
Would like a place where we can afford a room with a view.
We're early 30's, going for our main holiday. I like "seeing things", he likes relaxing so I can see us going on maybe 3 trips in the 9 nights.
This forum looks amazingly helpful so wondered if anyone could help? Thanks!
