We are coming to Italy to go skiing in the Dolomites in January and have 2 weeks pre skiing to do some other travelling.....how do you chose??
We like outdoors activities - walking/hiking/skiing (would love to ski Mt Etna) but would also like to see a bit of history/ old buildings, etc. So while this sounds a bit open ended can anyone suggest:
Where to base ourselves (Happy to stay in 2-3 places max.)?
Can we do a day ski trip from somewhere (need skis/boards)?
Should we look at guided tours (small group - recommendations?) given we have limited time?
"Must see" places in Sicily?
Also where to be for new years eve? (not sure if able to get to Sicily by then)
