Montalbano’s Sicily: Ragusa Ibla is oh, so beautiful!

For once not leading a tour for RWH, Eileen and Paul Lyons spent a welcome few days’ winter holiday in Ragusa Ibla in the Val di Noto in south-east Sicily, familiar to fans as the scenic setting for TV’s Inspector Montalbano series.

The highlight of my holiday was visiting Mount Etna. Etna was visible from the plane from 500 miles away; a slightly brooding presence with its upper slopes cloaked in snow.
