"Sicilian east coast" Sicilia Things to Do Tip by ROCKARIA

Sicilia Things to Do: 200 reviews and 512 photos

At least you need all the days that you can i would recommend 4 days
and concentrate your travel to the east coast from siracusa to Messina.

Well you will most probably land in Catania with the catamaran so you have to start off from here and spend the day around the city of Catania to feel & experience that we maltese are not the only crazy drivers!

Etna is not to be missed and if you manage book a tour that takes you to Mount Etna and the surrounding areas like agrigento and definetly Taormina which reminds me of an old typical maltese garrison town.Take a bus ride from the catania bus terminus to Messina (2.5 Hrs)and visit this port city,visit the famous piazza of the cathedral with the famous clock that have movable figures and noises every hour!
So in short i would base myself in Catania and by the way im sure that you will have someyhing to say about the italian cuisine once you get back...Buona Vacanza!
