    If you enjoy ancient history, this site is well worth the time. It requires some easy walking time, and if you go from one end to the other, you might want to make arrangements for a drive back to the start. Nevertheless, the temples and their setting are worth visiting.

    From Siracusa cross the Ponte Nuovo to an ancient old town that’s been here for 25 centuries since Greek times and visit the remnants of Temples Apollo and Athena. Then there’s the newer Duomo, Castello Maniace, Piazza Archiméde with Diana’s Fountain, Ortigia’s serene waterfront and a whole host of significantly styled architectural buildings influenced by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans and more. Its colourful, the streets are narrow and sometimes you feel like you’re in another world…

    Mt Etna is an active stratovolcano in Sicily between Catania and Messina, one of the tallest peaks in Europe. In its last continuous eruption in 2021, it spewed so much volcanic material that it increased its height by 100m. I went as far as the Capaninna Crater and climbed to that crater’s summit under Mt. Etna. Still cold, still snow around, still a great view. I did not go to Mt. Etna’s summit as the cable car, jeep/bus ride, coat rentals would have cost over 100 euros. Bought some “smoky wine” grown on Mt. Etna’s slopes, apparently Take warm clothes and book rides to the summit as you wish.

    A Greek Hellenistic theatre from around the 3rd Century BC was rebuilt under Roman rule around 3rd Century AD. It’s an impressive, imposing site built above Taormina. With some imagination you can envision what the place would have looked like back then. As it is, you see this site in a natural setting with great views of both the Calabrian and Sicilian coasts and the jutting cone of Mt Etna. It’s being restored so some parts are off-limit. As you gaze around be wary of what’s at your feet

    I have been living by beach places for almost all my life, but this location definitively caught my attention!
    What an amazing place!

    The cathedral is an impressive and impossing blend of Arab, Norman,Gothic and Baroque. The inside shares some of the same influences, there is much to see. There are different chapels, crypts and what’s called the treasury. You can also go on the roof but it’s very narrow. The park outside is a great place to people watch.

    Best day, stunning hike with breathtaking views of coves and mountains..
    we spent a few hours walking and stopped off at two of the Calas for much needed cooling off in the crystal clear water
    Hiking is hilly but paths are well maintained albeit rocky
    Definitely need trainers or hiking boots,p and plenty of water and snacks as there is nothing in the reserve once you enter we made the mistake of not bringing enough and had to cut our time on the beach short after hours in the sun
    A must visit in the area

    These are the remains of an elaborate Roman villa from the 4th C AD. It is considered to contain the preeminent collection of Roman mosaics in the world, meriting their inclusion as an UNESCO WHS. Mosaics have been well preserved due to the area being covered by flooding and landslides. I wasn’t able to see a large section of those mosaics as the site was undergoing restoration during the off-season. Still, I was able to see much of the site and some mosaics. There are also a large collection of frescoes on interior and exterior walls. Wonderful insight into the Roman experience.

    We visited the tonnara of Favignana our last day on the Egadis. The tonnara is an interesting example of industrial architecture and it has a sea turtles clinic inside the building. Liliana led in a very inspiring visit, where she taught us the almost mystic role of the rais alongside the different phases of tuna production. With the songs she shared with us, it was almost possible to feel the experience of the tonnara and its meaning not only for the industry but for the community as a whole. Absolutely recommended if you are in Favignana!

    Parked on a narrow street and walked up numerous sets of steps and streets to eventually end up at Piazza Duomo. The labyrinth of old town streets, intricate alleys and curving lanes means you can get lost, but it seems all roads lead to the Piazza Duomo and that fabulous church. Great views. Here I saw 19thC Palazzo Arezzo di Trifiletti, Teatro Donnafugata and Chiesa di San Giuseppe – all unfortunately closed during siesta time. There are little trattorias, tiny cafes and bars to sit and enjoy the view and refresh yourself with great food and drinks. On the way out to Modica, I came the wrong way up not one, but two dead end streets and had to reverse out, up hills with barely enough room on either side. I could not open my door fully. I blame the GPS

    Monreale deserves most of an afternoon. The mosaics are dazzling and impressively detailed, especially considering that they’d been wrought in 1123. Some seem almost whimsical in their depictions of Biblical stories, especially those from the Hebrew Scriptures.

    This is a true gem of a building. Initially a Greek temple with doric columns, it was then a Byzantine church, a mosque, a Norman church and now it is a Catholic cathedral. The Greek columns can still be clearly seen both outside and inside.
    It reminded me of Mezquita of Cordoba, which is a cathedral constructed over a mosque.

    We had such a fun tour with our Guide who spoke English very well and then switched to French for a young French couple. So many fun facts about the Opera House that were both interesting and fun to know. Highly recommend !

    This was such an easy way to access Erice. The parking lot was right at the bottom of the cable car and was inexpensive. Much easier than driving up the mountain road.

    Main city square flanked by City Hall (Palazzo degli Elefanti) and the Cathedral of Saint Agatha. 3 major streets enter the square giving it a unique position in the city. It is Catania’s heartbeat. During my time here, I found the elephant fountain and some impressive buildings. There was a lot of pedestrian traffic through here as it is also on the way to Catania’s famous fish market.
