Parking outside of hilltowns/cities

Palermo, Trapani, Cefalu, Taromina, Catania, Siracuse, Monreal and???

I have learned from this forum that it is sometimes not a good idea to actually try to drive in some or all of the above mentioned cities. When I visited Tuscany last fall, many of the hill towns/cities had parking lots outside the town/city and one could find free parking or pay for parking and then walk into the town. Is this true for the above mentioned cities?

You could park at either Palermo or Catania's airports located west of these two cities, and take the bus into the cities.

There is also inexpensive private parking near Catania's airport.

Driving and parking isn't especially challenging in Siracusa. This thread discusses Ortigia's ZTL, and Ortigia's parking station at Talete.

Driving and parking also isn't difficult in Trapani, but become familiar with Trapani's ZTL.

There's a 24-hour ZTL in Trapani's historic centre.

The streets are listed on the Comune di Trapani website.

There's a car park at the bottom of Ibla in Ragusa, and then you can walk up to Ibla.
