Sicily is a region that is perfect for a on the road trip, mostly during summer time, thanks to its numerous wonderful beaches where to stop to take a break between a city and another.

One week, one on the road to do, here's our travel proposal, starting from Taormina to Agrigento.

Day 1 and 2: Catania

Catania's Airport is the fourth largest in Italy, as the number of flights landing on its runways. We have chosen Catania as the starting city for this reason, since there are many low cost airlines that come here from all over Italy.

In Catania we suggest you to spend at least two days and, weather permitting, we recommend you to do not miss an excursion to the Etna. When do you have the occasion to climb a volcano?

Here you can not miss: Duomo square, city's lively heart, Roman Greek theater, Ursino's castle and, if you can, even underground Catania. Under the asphalt of the streets, in fact, it hides the sixteenth century city, and it is wonderful.

Where to sleep in Catania: Ostello degli Elefanti Catania

Day 3: Taormina

In the morning of the third day wake up early and reach the city of Taormina, less than an hour from Catania. Even here there is a beautiful Greek theater, of which you have definitely seen thousans pictures, but it is not the only thing to see in this beautiful city.

Taormina

Take a walk in Piazza IX Aprile, known as the "well" lounge in Taormina, for the prestigious cafes. Enjoy the sight, that's free and to everyone's reach.

Day 4: Syracuse

Syracuse is a city to fall in love with. The Duomo of Syracuse is absolutely a must, especially since once it was a Greek temple, while Castle Maniace is the perfect place to enjoy breathtaking views around the city.

Siracusa

The Church of St. John to the Catacombs is a jewel without roof, but what we recommend you to visit are the catacombs of St. John, home of the ancient Christian necropolis.

Day 5: Ragusa

Even in Ragusa there is the Church of St. John, but here it is the patron saint of the city, try to imagine how beautiful it is.

Ragusa

Do not miss the Scala di Iba, a pedestrian walk from the Church of Santa Maria delle Scale to Piazza della Repubblica (Republic Square). We suggest you do it at sunset, because of the colors you will see on the city.
