Hi there, I'm thinking about possibly escaping the next winters' cold to Sicily and would like to see Catania and Sirakusa (I've visited Palermo before so that's not gonna be part of the trip). My visit would possibly include Christmas Eve and Christmas Days, Dec 24-26.
I was wondering what to expect in Catania and Sirakusa Ortigia in terms of open stores (specifically minimarkets/supermarkets for food and drink - I don't need clothing or bookstores), restaurants/pizzerias, and buses and local trains (especially the airport bus from Catania airport into Catania, and the buses or local trains between Catania and Sirakusa). Will these things be working partly, or not at all on Dec 24-26?
Thanks for any info or input!
