Hi (Ciao Vagabonda),
Nowhere in the "Lonely Planet" book could i find any info about Museums closures - but on one of the other Forums someone advised to "take note" of that ?!
We will be in Lipari - arriving around noon on a Sunday and leaving around noon on Tuesday (22 April to 24) - and would like to visit both the Museum AND the OBSERVATORY (for which one has to make reservations ?? - how to contact them ? - we really want to see the Observatory) and yes, we'll hike up to the crater on Vulcano somewhere in between too.
IF Museums are closed on a Monday are they open on a Sunday ?
Planning our trip i am truly finding out that "the devil is in the details" !
Different subject : I have just followed that thread on Trapani vs. Castellammare d.G. and found Vagabonda's knowledge and suggestions invaluable - we wanted to stay 2 nights in Trapani to explore Erice, Mozia, Marsala and Segeste but now think of staying in C.d.G. and make the trip(s) from there (we have a rental car). Hotel Al Madarig or Punta Nord Est ?
Then we will drive on to Cefalu (on a Monday - 30 April) but wanted to stop on the way to see the Cattedrale - obviously not a good idea if one can't drive there ...is there an easy way somewhere in the vicinity of Monreale to park (reasonably safe !) and take a taxi (possibly arrange ahead of getting there) ?
