We are attending a friends wedding in Reggio Calabria and we are landing and departing from Catania and have Aug 11 - 15 free and are keen to spend time in Taormina and do a day trip hiking to Mt. Etna. We love food, wine, relaxation and beaches! We just did a 2.5 week tour around all of Italy - Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast etc and so don't want a very hectic trip but definitely don't want to miss out on the must dos!
How many nights should we stay in Catania 1 or 2 or should we just stay a night and spend remaining 3 nights in Taormina? Besides Mt. Etna are there any must visits outside the city limits and how much time should we allocate to those?
Thank you so much in advance!!
