I just turned in credit cards points for a round trip St. Louis to Rome. I leave April 2 and return April 16. I have two weeks and I'm think 8-9 days touring Sicily and maybe touring Sardenia for a couple of days. OR, one week on the west coast and one week on the east coast of Sicily. Have several books on Sicily, but I'm concerned about getting from one town to another. Does anyone know how safe and reliable bus travel is from home base to say Compobello from Paleramo?
