    Lovely view with Mount Etna in the background! To visit Sicily is still high on my wishlist!

      Thanks, Malena. Sicily has lots to offer and is quite large and diverse. Hope you make it sometime when you have completed all of your adventures! Lia

    Nice page and great photos! Although I've been to Sicily twice, I have never had the pleasure of visiting Siracusa. Thanks for sharing!!

      I thought I had built Taormina and Cefalu page but guess I haven't after all. I'll have to find those photos, etc.

    Lia, i can see why you would want to spend part of each year. Beautiful unspoilt place so well presented in your tips.

    We missed visiting the Castello Maniace. It looks rather nice.
    Very sad about the sinking of the migrant's boat. Surely this trafficking must stop??

      Yes, for parts of the year; the hottest parts of summer and coldest parts of winter we go back to north Lancs :)

      It's well worth a visit. The Theatre is being renovated - I'll let you know if they ever finish the work :-)
