    We were shown around this beautifully restored palazzo by la Contessa Federico herself. She gave a lot of her time and was very open about what it was like to live her life. Fascinating.

    When in Catania you really have to visit Etna. We took a day trip which was €70 for two people. It was well organised and though the driver had little or no English they provided headphones which told Etna's story in various languages. It was a very worthwhile experience and we ended up at the cable car about half way up the volcano. The views of Etna on the way up and Catania on the way down were breathtaking.

    This is really a gem! Take the opportunity to visit this place before the sunset and enjoy the view and its colours. Because the restaurant, it's possible to have lunch or aperitivo sitting in front of it. Absolutely recommended for couples, friends or families. Usually it's really windy, so just be careful in case of small children.

    We had a great day here just wandering through the pretty streets and looking at the beautiful buildings on a very hot day, which gave us the perfect excuse to enjoy the cafes and piazzas and watch the world stroll by.

    During the summer the theatre is used for live events, and so the charm of the venue is lost with all the equipment used around the stage etc.

    We visited here during a recent visit to Palermo and enjoyed this very much - the interiors were really very nice and the gardens around the place were also very nice. I would be sure to stop here when in Palermo.

    A very nice place to visit and also very historic. The attention to detail will take your breath away. I would have loved to be able to spend more time at the cathedral; however, I was pressed for time. I loved every moment of it.

    The guided tour was well worth the 10€, you get a short yet comprehensive tour of the building in both Italian and English.

    There may still be some fishing, but it's a popular tourist sight now. Lovely to walk around the small streets, visit some shops, sit out and have a meal/drink. We drive past the overflow car park and straight into the village. There is a small car park that could accommodate about 10 cars.

    It is a strange and eerie experience, on reflection of the visit you have to always bear in mind the reality of what happened Poggioreale and why it was abandoned, a tragic earthquake which took the lives of hundreds of people only 50 years ago and it is a living memorial to those who passed; this fact should always be front of mind if you visit. Should note that it also isn’t “open” to the public, it is fenced off with locked gates but getting in isn’t difficult and you can get over the wall very easily. We went because I am fascinated by deserted places not because we wanted to see a disaster zone (and make no mistake it is a disaster zone) but it is a time capsule and the fact that it isn’t a “tourist” spot means that you won’t have much, if any, company (we were there by ourselves). A fascinating place to visit of a bygone time, but treat it with the respect that it deserves!

    The best beach of the island by far, but also the busiest one. By walk it takes about 15 minutes from the street down to go there. It opens at 8.30.
    If it is constantly rated the best beach in 'Europe' it must be a reason!

    The water and colour of the sand are so unique. Speechless.

    Lampedusa has also the advantage of having a convenient airport to travel from Catania or Palermo, and the norther airports on summer time.

    Interesting information about tonnario, nice bird viewing. The beach has a lot of vegetal
    Debris. Once your got through it the water was clear and refreshing. 3,500 e to park and 3 e for park ticket.

    Beautiful city with lots of bars and restaurants. Plenty of room on the beach in May and the weather was brilliant.

    This beautiful church is something to put on your itinerary when in Palermo. It is centrally located and can easily be included in a walk around the city. The decoration inside is really beautiful.

    Visited here and did the walk that showed the different stages that the salt workers do and the Salt Museum which was very interesting though small. They do sell some salts including bath salts that you can take home as a souvenir
