Start the day in Catania.
Arrived at the Catania-Fontanarossa Airport, pick up the rent car at the airport, driving up north to Milazzo.
sunrise in Catania
Stranded at Torre Archirafi
Found the first Foccacia in the island.
Tips : rent a Fiat Panda or any other small car, because the towns have small roads
Stop by Taormina
Taormina is my second favourite stop after Aeolian Islands. Situated on a hill overlooking the Gulf ofNaxos
To the Aeolian Islands
The Aeolian Islands are nestled in between the mainland of Italy and the island of Sicily.
To go there, you can either with ferries or hydrofoils boats, and check the schedule hier.
"I was lucky to see dolphins in the ocean on sunset, it was surreal!"
The island has a surface area of 37.6 square kilometres, so you could driving around the island with a scooter in 3 hours.
Rent a scooter for €25 a day.
Full tank gasoline €5 (enough for driving around the island)
Tips : restaurants are expensive on the islands, its better to bring food from the mainland.
Clue: I know it's expensive to eat at the restaurants, but WHO CARES?? The Sicilians cook really good!! And try all the seafood, they're all crazy!
Most of the beaches in Lipari are rock beach, so you need to put your flip flop on to walk on the beaches. But the water are clear you could see fish swimming.

Rent a boat at the port :Marina Corta.
No driving license needed for a boat with 40 horse power.
Favignana is the largest and most important of the Aegadian Islands, three islands off the western coast of Sicily.
Scala dei Turchi
Southern coast of Sicily hides a one of a kind treasure, the white cliffs of Scala dei Turchi, located near the Realmonte village. White rocks emerge out of the sapphire blue sea to form a natural wonder you cannot miss when you travel to the Mediterranean’s biggest island. The attraction is free of charge and you can climb the cliffs yourselves and spend there as much time as you wish. I highly recommend visiting the place at sunrise or sundown as the colours of the sky make the view even more breathtaking!
The whole of the old town is steeped in history, mainly in the Baroque style. This makes for very narrow streets, with tight corners and lots of obstacles to negotiate
