My new favourite region of Italy is Sicily. And given that my favourite country in the world has long been Italy, that is saying something! In September I had the luck of spending 2.5 weeks travelling around la ‘bedda’ Sicilia (as they say in the local dialect) and I can highly recommend it. I managed to spend such a long time there because I had a long summer in between university and my new job, but as most working people can take 2 weeks off at most, I’ve shortened my itinerary down to 2 weeks for you, with a couple of additional suggestions that you can either include or exclude. There’s a fair amount of beach-time in this itinerary, as well as plenty of Ancient Ruins and the main towns to visit for architecture.
