We are arriving in Catania from Naples after a 4 week tour of Italy on March 5. We would like to visit East Coast as well as Aggrigento and Palermo. We thought that we would either 1. Stay in Catania 2 nights with a day trip to etna and Taormina, then bus to Siracuse for 2 nights (Siracuse already booked 2 nights but flexible) or bus straight from airport to Taomina stay 2 nights then bus to Siracuse. The next bit gets tricky as we would then like to go to Agrigento via Piazza Amerina stay in Agrigento then on to Palermo, flying out on the 13th March. We thought to save time we would bus from Siracuse back to Catania airport and pick up a hire car, returning it to Palermo (Avis at airport only - maybe dropping luggage off at a hotel near bus or train for easy departure?) then 2 days in Palermo. Any other thoughts or suggestions?
