Francavilla al Mare

Hiking through Francavilla

As the week went on, the walks became slightly harder but the views were getting better. We visited places such as Taormina and, on our day off, a couple of us chose to go to Syracuse, a place bursting with rich history: with amphitheatres, catacombs and castles, there is too much to do and see in one day but it is definitely worth a visit.

Great Thundering Volcanoes of Sicily

Sicily is an attractive location with lots of good scenery, interesting little villages and hill-top towns, and lots to see in terms of culture and history that illustrates its tempestuous past. It also seemed to be populated with friendly locals wherever we went – and quite a few really engaging characters.

Scintillating Sicily

The holiday to Sicily went very well – I only wished there had been more than 3 of us on our own, 16 others were pairs – but very friendly!The hotel was good, but we found it hard to enjoy cooked veg – not as hot as in UK! Also as a veggie I found the main course sometimes rather plain – cheese and cheese!
