Sicily trip west to east or east to west from new York?

Starting Sept 29 - 12 day trip to see historical sites/towns. Is east to west best or west to east? Coming from New York. Also, is it wise to Drive and what is most reliable and largest car rental agency? Thanks.

Welcome to Sicily Louis S!

That would depend on your intended bases, and your intended day trip destinations, as well as your flights.

Ideal direction to tour the island?:

Avoid driving in Catania and Palermo.

Hire the car after leaving Catania or Palermo, and prior to arriving in Catania or Palermo.

Hire the car for the countryside, the interior, wineries, and point-to point driving.

Contact Auto Europe and secure the super coverage insurance at booking, and preferably with Europcar as the supplier.

And perhaps search for later departing flights as a factor in your decision.

Historically Palermo has offered later departing flights connecting to transatlantic flights via Rome than Catania, but that's no indication of what might happen on your precise travel date.

Best airports for trip of 2 - 2.5 weeks:
