Well thanks to Vagabonda I've planned my little Sicilian sojourn.
However I have a bit of a silly question. Taormina hotels appear to be quite pricey though I was hoping they might be a little lower in October which I believe is shoulder season.
Was wondering if anyone had experiences booking hotels in Taormina last minute and getting good deals, or do hotels fill up very early even for October. I know I can get a better price by using an 'early booking' rate with some hotels, but given how late into the trip it is, I dont really want to risk a non-refundable fare (already risking enough of those!)
Normally I wouldn't care (much) about a few dollars here or there, but after almost 2 months travel in Europe I think the wallet will be getting very light by this stage.
