    The temples stand out on the horizon and I'm not sure why but I didn't expect to find such wonderfully preserved temples.
    It was such a hot afternoon and felt like I was going to pass out but a great experience to see them and hear all about them from the knowledgeable guide.

    Although it is fabulous, and easily walkable, it certainly has its fair share of tourist tat. Gets very busy at weekends - if you need a parking space then forget it - come during the week instead! Head for the main square in front of the Cathedral and branch out from there.

    We stayed in Nicolosi to be able to drive to Refugio Sapienza (1700m) easily. Only 18 kms away. The road is quite wide, no major hairpins. We are with a motorcycle. Easy ride up. When we arrived at the parking, there was someone on the parking lot who made us pay 5 euros for the day to park the motorcycle. We decided not to take the cable car as the cost is $50 euros per person. We climbed up from behind the cable car to the arrival of the cable car at approximately 2500 metres. It's quite a steep hike. It took us 1hour and 15 minutes, but we are in pretty good shape. Most people would take 1h30min minimum. We took a break at the coffee shop, then continued hiking up to 3000 metres. It's easier than the first part but longer (another hour and a half). There was quite a lot of wind after 2500 meters. Absolutely worth the walk up to 3000 meters (beautifuly scenery and craters to see) and you can do this on your own, without a guide as we did. After 3000 meters. a guide is necessary as you start being in the lava fields with fumes and treacherous paths. You would need good hiking shoes after 3000 meters as well. We walked with running shoes up to 3000 meters, but hiking shoes would have been better (for us, it's a space issue in the motorcycle). Just bring lots of water as it gets very dusty when windy and it's still a challenging hike where you would need to keep hydrated, especially if it gets warm. Yesterday, the temperature at the parking lot, despite the wind was around 28 degrees. Check weather forecast. In the end, the day costed us 5 euros cash. If you are in good shape, schedule extra time to hike up like we did to 3000 meters, save money and enjoy the special feeling of walking in a volcanic area. Some people we met did the same thing as we did with cable car and guide to the 3000 meter mark (did not walk up to the crater) and paid 91 euros per person for half a day. Alternatively, just take the cable car and then hike up to 3000 meters. We just find that 50 euros is extremely expensive for this cable car, but it's a matter of having time and being fit. Beautiful and challenging day overall that left us happy and tired !

    The ancient theater of Taormina is beautiful. I was struck by its size and its state of conservation which is quite good. The view enjoyed from the upper part of the theater towards the sea and towards the city of Taormina is excellent.

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

    We visited Palermo for 1 day by cruiser and had great chance to see the cattedrale di Palermo. Walk around and take few photos. Sit inside and pray. Some areas are not accessible, but it was not an issue.

    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

    If we had to pick the most extraordinary attraction we saw in Sicily, it would be this one!
    The Villa, located outside Piazza Armerina in Central Sicily. is from the late-antic period of Rome, from the IV. century. Its floor space of about 3500 square meters is covered with unique mosaics!
    We could see and admire them from a walkway above the mosaics. We entered the villa at the northwestern corner, where the thermal baths are located. We visited the horseshoe-shaped original ancient entrance to the villa that has no roof and continued northeast to the magnificent rectangular Peristyle with numerous mosaics on its edges.
    North of the rectangular Peristyle are the rooms that were probably the kitchen area and some other rooms intended for the guests of the Villa. The floors of all these rooms are also covered with mosaics, mostly geometrical in design.
    Then we arrived at the longest and probably the most beautiful area, the 60-meter-long Corridor of the Great Hunt, located east of the rectangular Peristyle! The mosaic which covers the whole floor depicts how wide animals were captured and transported for the gladiator games! Due to the earthquakes, some parts of the ground supporting the mosaic became wavy but the mosaic is intact.
    In one of the rooms south of the rectangular Peristyle, we saw an equally famous mosaic, depicting girls in bikinis playing a kind of ancient sports game.
    Following the tourist path, we went outside to see the smaller oval Peristyle in front of the triclinium, the dining area.
    Then in the southeast part of the Villa, we entered again the walkway above the mosaics to see the quarters reserved for the family of the owner: we saw a small atrium there and the children's room. The mosaics in this area are also exceptional.
    We continued to the Basilica (not in a Christian but in an ancient Roman sense), a huge space for the reception and formal audience of guests. The floor in this room was severely damaged.
    The last rooms we saw were the private quarters of the owner with mosaics depicting an erotic scene in one room and several scenes with Odyssey and Cyclops Polyphemos.

    A truly beautiful experience that brings you back 100 years when the tuna business was the main activity of the island. Guided tours are still not on and only thanks to Piera, who is a local guide there and run the extra mile spending time to explain us the full story of the family and how the different parts of the Tonnara worked, that we could fully appreciate the experience. It would have not been the same thing without her, especially for our children.
    Honestly a must see if you happen to be between Trapani and Marsala as this business shaped the local economy for so many years.

    Beautiful old city with stunning views. We stayed just outside Ibla on the central Ragusa side in an Airbnb on the hillside overlooking Ibla. Can’t beat that location if you have a view of Ibla.. Ibla is a collection of very old building and churches that is not overly commercialized though with sufficient restaurants and cafes. We just spent much of the time walking around the streets and getting in our steps. Two days is about sufficient for a visit as you can walk everything in one day and there are only so many churches one can explore over a weekend. As we were here over Easter weekend we were able to catch one of the Good Friday church processions which were very interesting to watch and walk along with for a bit.

    During our previous visit, there was a much smaller crowd inside, there were no scaffolds covering the side altars and as it was sunny outside, there was more sunlight in the church...
    Nevertheless, it was still a fantastic experience visiting the Duomo di Monreale once again and admiring the mosaics and the lavish decoration!

    This cathedral charges an entrance fee. The external façade is very ornate but internally quite austere when you first enter. The decor of the side chapels is fabulous. There is a lovely marble floor. Remains of the preceding Greek temple are evident in the columns internally. Staff were not particularly helpful

    Beautiful buildings in a busy square. Cafes around that don’t charge a fortune & stunning architecture to view. Fountain with elephant statue is being renovated but looked amazing!

    This church is really beautiful. You do have to pay to get in. But it’s worth it. The level of detail is amazing. They couldn’t afford to build something like this currently. It’s really great.
