Hi friends! I am planning a beach holiday for 5 nights in Siciliy. I visited Taormina last year and loved it, and was also lucky enough to visit Palermo. This time around I tossing up between staying on Favignana in the Egadi Islands to visit the beaches, and perhaps do some day trips to the surrounding areas in Trapani province, segesta, monreale, selinunute, etc. Otherwise I am thinking about staying in the aeolian islands on Salina and relaxing in that region.
Would love to get anyone's opinions on these options. How far is it to get to the Aeolian islands and which airport is closest? Is it realistic to stay in. Favignana for 5 nights and do day trips from there as a base?
Which is nicer and easier to get to, Egadi or Aeolian?
