I read quite a few of the road trip topics on TripAdvisor but most look quite outdated and not exactly matching our situation.
My wife-to-be and will be in beautiful Sicily between Aug 31 and Sept 8, 2013.We are flying to Palermo, where we have a rental waiting for us and we're staying in Castellammare del Golfo. We would like to make the most of our stay but also split it between relaxing at the beach and doing some trips in North-West of Sicily. So, basically, we'd like to dedicate maybe 3 days for just traveling and seeing stuff.
What would you recommend seeing (wine tasting/coffee/authentic food/historical places)?
How do tolls work on your highways? Is is the usual drill where you pay at the toll or have the little zapper on you windshield?
Lights on at all time, fluorescent jacket, aggressive drivers - is there anything else we should keep in mind?
I can't wait to go - I bet it's going to be awesome! In March we visited Rome and that was, by far,one of the best trips of my life. Amazing people, great food, incredibly rich culture and heritage.
Thanks in advance, folks!
