It depends on your style of travel: the I have a list to check or I wanna relax. Def rent a car because public transportation is not good. If you fly to Palermo and visit that side, you can visit Palermo & surrounding beaches, cefalu and maybe a visit to ustica. If you fly into Catania, then Catania, Taormina (extremely charming and crowded w tourists), Noto, Ragussa. You can also visit the Aeolian islands too. Agrigento is a long drive from either city but very beautiful Greek ruin and almost no tourist. I'd split the stay between cities so u don't have to drive back and forth all the time. I visited twice and probably spend about 2.5 weeks there and it's not enough

Thanks, incredibly helpful! We’re more in the relax/wander camp. Good food, some historical sites, smaller less touristy places where can walk around. Not super keen on beaches. Was thinking of flying into Catania and staying there, in Siracusa and in Modica. If flying into Palermo, then staying there but not sure where else. Greatly welcome any thoughts!

Catania is a good choice and I saw more of that side than Palermo as well. I think you already have a good plan so could just stick to that.

We loved the area around Taormina - we rented an apartment there and took day trips. Mt Etna, there’s a Roman villa with incredible Mosaics nearby, great food and right near the ocean

If you went part-time, was there any impact on your benefits? My firm doesn’t have a part-time policy but a partner proposed that I do that rather than leave while pursuing a project for 1-2 years. I’m considering having baby number 2 and I’m not sure whether my leave would be impacted.

I wonder if I cancel people too quickly? In the past 2 years or so I have distanced myself a lot of people I feel aren’t good to/for me. I have history of tolerating bad behavior, and I came to slowly realize how important it is for relationships to have mutual respect and empathy. And MANY did not make that list. Anyone relate? How do you know for sure if u did the right thing? It’s left me only with high quality people who truly uplift & inspire me. But only 3 people, that’s literally it.
