Best Sicily trip for older couple

We are an older couple who have no interest in big cities, nightlife or beaches. We enjoy walking, nature, art, cultural experiences, good food and quiet and slow travel by public transportation. We speak some Italian and prefer more "rustic" accommodations. What would be the best itinerary for an 8 day visit to Sicily in late September? Thanks so much. We will be coming from London and can fly into Palermo, Trapani or Catania.

Welcome to Sicily santafiora!

Sicily’s southeast around Siracusa, Ragusa, Modica, and Scicli would be an ideal location for walking, nature, art, cultural experiences, good food, and quiet and slow travel by public transportation. This area is very genuine, and enjoys a high standard and some of the best cuisine and wine in Sicily.

Fly to Catania – Trains service this area, but locals much prefer buses. Interbus and AST service the Val di Noto, even directly from Catania’s airport.

The Val di Noto is a UNESCO site.

This earlier thread discusses this area and offers further information and links to subsequent threads.
