Our trip to Sicily was amazing! Probably one of the best vacations we've been on. We swam in the clearest, most beautiful Mediterranean waters in Ortigia, Giardini Naxos and Lipari. We hiked Mt. Etna and waded through the majestic Golle delAlcantara . Walked and shopped the quaint streets of Taormina and Ortigia. The day trips to Ragusa and Modica were enlightening and fun . Our drivers, Carmelo in Siracuse area and Pino in Taormina area, were efficient, friendly and beyond accommodating .
We continuously marveled at the endless awe inspiring views of Etna and the changing blues of the sea and sky.
We ate delicious fresh food and drank more wine in two weeks than I usually do in a year. The food markets, both in Ortigia and Catania, made us salivate at the myriad of offerings. I only wish we could've filled our suitcases and brought some home. Looking back on our trip there's really nothing I would've done differently.
