It’s time to leave Sicily!
The history, the contrasting landscapes, the people and the food have been amazing.
We’ve loved every minute of our trip.
Here are some of our memories.
Iconic Etna was erupting whilst we were in Sicily. Smoke plumes wafted over the sky for days
Donald, our trusty Fiat Doblo, took us everywhere!
From stunning Siracusa, with it’s maze of alleyways……
Where laundry fluttered in the breeze……
To the fishing villages of the south……
Where the three wheeled Apè was constantly in use……
From mountains villages, where rooftops created their own memory…….
To the clear blue waters of San Vito lo Capo……
Through fields of flowers……
Dotted with stone walls……
Spotting wild fennel growing everywhere……
To the Nebrodi mountains to see the famous black pigs.
We loved the markets with all the fabulous selection of fresh food and fish
Tasty Pachino tomatoes
Choose your fish.
With raw ingredients of this quality, we ate at fabulous restaurants, from simple trattorias to Michelin starred restaurants.
Star treatment at La Madia in Licata
Simple, stunning seafood antipasti at Sakalleo in Scoglitti
Sicily’s own pasta with sardines at Duomo in Ragusa.
Stunningly tomato salad with pasta and mussels at La Conchiglietta in Marzamemi
Amazing antipasti selection at Zia Pina in Palermo
Zuppe di Mare at Per Bacco in Siracusa
Pane cunzato at Da Alfredo in Lingua, Salina
Local festivals were a highlight.
La Festa di Capperi in Pollara, Salina
La Festa di San Giorgio in Modica
Meeting friendly locals who were always wanting to know where we were from, what we were doing and where we were going.
Beautiful Marino in Trapani
Making cheese with Guilio in the Madonie Mountains
Everywhere we went, we were surrounded by history
Golden mosaics at Monreale Cathedral, Palantine Chapel in Palermo, Piazza Armerina and the Duomo in Cefalu
Modica- one of the many Baroque towns of South East Sicily
Temple ruins at Segesta, Selinute and Agrigento
Lets not forget the sweet treats
And the best- Cannolo
We’ll be back!
