7 days road trip itineraries in Sicily


It starts from Messina. Continue south, in principle driving along the E45. By car, thus, you can easily touch all seven stages of the tour to discover eastern Sicily:

  • First and second day: Messina;

  • Third day: Taormina;

  • Fourth day: Catania;

  • Fifth day: Etna;

  • Sixth and seventh day: Syracuse.

Having a little more time available, it takes about an hour by car from Syracuse to reach Portopalo di Capo Passero, where the Mediterranean and the Ionian Sea meet.



Compared to the first itinerary, the second is perhaps a little less easy to travel by car (also because, to get to Favignana, you will have to leave it and take a ferry from Trapani) but it will still be very pleasant to visit northwestern Sicily in seven days:

  • First day: Palermo;

  • Second day: Isola delle Femmine;

  • Third day: Castellammare del Golfo and San Vito Lo Capo;

  • Fourth day: Erice;

  • Fifth day: Cefalù;

  • Sixth day: Favignana;

  • Seventh day: Segesta.



From Catania, it takes about an hour and a half by car to reach Ragusa. Where this seven-day itinerary along southern Sicily begins:

  • First day: Ragusa Ibla;

  • Second day: Modica;

  • Third day: Gela;

  • Fourth day: Agrigento;

  • Fifth day: Valley of the Temples;

  • Sixth day: Sciacca;

  • Seventh day: Mazara Del Vallo.



The fourth itinerary could be summarised in this way: from Messina, on the Strait, to Palermo. In between there are about 230 kilometres of sea, history and panoramas that will leave you breathless. Here are the stages, one a day:

  • First day: Messina;

  • Second day: Milazzo;

  • Third day: Capo d'Orlando;

  • Fourth day: Nebrodi Park;

  • Fifth day: Cefalù;

  • Sixth day: Madonie Park;

  • Seventh day: Palermo.
