A Tale of Two Sicilys … Part 2

The lunch view in Cefalu … and yes, I know that rhymes!

Gosh, has it really been a month since I last posted? Oops. It was a great month, enjoying the last of the summer sun, with a trip to Lyon, France, thrown in for good measure!

But back to Sicily. The glorious side of Sicily. I’m ready to show you it’s not all refuse and garbage, but gobsmackingly beautiful too.

We spent time on the east coast, where Mt Etna seems to always be looming, then the north west and south east corners. We covered some miles! We visited Passopisciaro, Fiumefreddo, Cefalu, Castellammare del Golfo, Punta Secca, Scicli, Noto, Syracuse, Mt Etna (was 15 degrees Celsius, we didn’t stay long!) and Taormina.

Favourite places?

Cefalu, Punta Secca, Syracuse and always Taormina.

Here we go:

Passopisciaro/Fiumefreddo region

Cefalu:

Castellammare del Golfo:

Punta Secca:

Ok, this was the true highlight of the trip because we stayed two nights in the Inspector Montalbano house. They use it in the tv series and it was such a thrill to stand on the famous (to viewers) balcony.

Scicli and Noto:

Syracuse:

Mt Etna and Taormina:

And that’s about all I’m going to show. You’ll just have to visit too!

Wishing you a wonderful day.
