We are travelling to Sicilia for the first time at the end of June for 2 weeks.
I would like to choose 2 bases to explore the island rather than moving all the time. I am thinking Syracusa and Cefalu. I have read quite a lot of the recommendations posted and certainly think Syracusa would be a definite. I am not so sure about Cefalu.
We would like to visit Palermo, Monreale, etc but I am not as familar with the north and west coasts and what area would work best for us. We will have a car.
We are very interested in the local culture (studio l'italiano!) rather than tourist resorts although we know it will be busy then. We fly out of Catania.
Your recommendations would be most gratefully received.
