A friend and I are looking forward to our first time in Sicily in August this year (unfortunately this is high season but this is the only time we can go). Planning on flying into Catania then hiring a car and 3 nights siracusa- staying ortigia if possible, 3 nights taormina, 3 nights aeolian islands, 3 nights palermo. Does this itinerary sound reasonable? Have been reading all the amazing information on the forums in TA, but most of the forum comments on accomodation seems to be the more expensive options. We will be travelling on a budget and ideally 100euors/night or less would be great. Any advice on good, clean hotels or b&bs in nice locations, in any of these places, that aren't too expensive- especially siracusa and taormina? Any tips would be a great help.
Thanks in advance
