Our Itinerary

Flew from Valencia to Palermo


We drove from Palermo Airport. Stayed 2 nights at Graces Place, a B&B outside Scopello. We went into Palermo one day - interesting drivers there.


En route to Marsala we saw the Temple at Segesta nd the village of Erice. From Marsala we then had a trip to the ruins of Seliunte and saw a Marsala producer.


A fairly undeveloped fishing port. Our hotel had a splendid view over the harbour


We stopped at the Valley of the Temples, Sicily's iconic Greek site. Then stayed at Favara, a characterful. but run down town, a few kms from the Temples


Ragusa is UNESCO, like most of the places we saw in Sicily. It is quite gentrified. We enjoyed a 2* Michelin birthday lunch at El Duomo, run by one of Italy's best known celebrity chefs


We stayed in the centre of the city. Had a day up Etna by cable car, and a day wandering round Catania


The crook who ran the B&B we stayed at contrived to give us an over-priced room with a view of a rusty fence. However I liked Taormina, which was little bit like Capri


We stayed at a converted monastery outside Cefalu .Visited both Cefalu and Castelbuono
