We're heading to Taormina at the beginning of Sept and have a 2.5 year old in tow. We'd love to go out to mount etna, so wondered if anyone had recommendations for tours that go there that are suitable when you have a toddler - i.e one that doesn't require a lot of walking
Any recommendations for other toddler-friendly activity are also welcome!
What a shame on the ticket agent.
We were in Catania, wanted to visit Syracuse.
We went last Friday 31st July at around 9.15am.
We went to get the tickets from Piazza Station, Ast office.
The agent asked in Italian language diceanove venti euros.
We gave him €30 cause we understand €29.20.
He took them and gave us €0.80 change and said veloce,veloce il bus is leaving in Italian.
We run and whilst we were on the bus looked at tickets and found out he STOLE €10 and keep them in his pocket.
In the afternoon we went to the office to tell but the agent wasn't duty.
We were so upset that we left our luggage on the bus as well.
In the morning we went at the office , talked to the agent and he was shocked and said he don't remember.
He is not going to be rich but he is not fit for the job.
Tourists make sacrifices to have a holiday and won't expect to be maltreated and mostly ripped off.
Shame on him!
I'm coming for 2 weeks to Sicily and plan to spend day or 2 in Palermo. We are driving a car, but having read a lot of horror stories of traffic in Palermo, I booked 2 nights in Monreale, planning to go by bus. But... I've also got tickets to the Massimo theater and was told that taking bus at night won't be an option. So what is the easiest way to get from Monreale to Palermo and back, and if we need to go by car, where can we park to make our driving less stressful and parking safe?
My husband and I are coming for 2 weeks to Sicily. We are flying to Catania, spent a night near the airport and take the car in the morning. My plan for now is following:
1 day - Enna, night at Piazza Armerina
2 day - Caltagirone , Ragusa, night at Siracusa
3 - Siracusa
4 - leave Sicarusa, drive to Agrigento (last evening visit the Valey of Temples). On the way visit Notto and Modica (is it not too much?), Night in Agrigento
5. Night in Erice
6-7 Palermo. On the way from Erice visit Monreale
8. Night in Milazzo . Spend half a day at Cefalu
9. Night at Stromboli
10. Visit Volcano on the way back to Milazzo.
11. Night at Messina
12-13 Nights near Etna, one day - tour up the volcano
14 - Night in Catania
Any advice very-very welcome
