    We were shown around this beautifully restored palazzo by la Contessa Federico herself. She gave a lot of her time and was very open about what it was like to live her life. Fascinating.

    03. 09. 2021 Etna visit - We went alone, without a travel guide, we parked in the parking lot at cratères Silvestri, we didn't even take the cable car, we walked. The routes are quite noticeable. Just every step in the ashes was like two steps, a lot of it slid back. Perfect experience for about 5 hours. We didn't get all the way up, but we saw and went through a lot. I recommend.

    This is really a gem! Take the opportunity to visit this place before the sunset and enjoy the view and its colours. Because the restaurant, it's possible to have lunch or aperitivo sitting in front of it. Absolutely recommended for couples, friends or families. Usually it's really windy, so just be careful in case of small children.

    We had a great day here just wandering through the pretty streets and looking at the beautiful buildings on a very hot day, which gave us the perfect excuse to enjoy the cafes and piazzas and watch the world stroll by.

    Built by the Greeks, modified by the Romans. Still in use today. Long climb up, but worth it. Climb even higher for greater views.

    Go early to avoid long lines.....this is not a quick in/out. The palace apartment rooms are ornately decorated but contain modern furnishings as they remain in use by the Sicilian regional government. The show stopper, however, is the Palantine Chapel with its gorgeous mosaics. The ceiling of the chapel is constructed of ornate woodwork reflective of its Norman heritage while the floors and walls are covered in intricate, detailed, beautiful mosaics. These mostly Byzantine-styled mosaics depict both Old and New Testament Bible stories - we were fortunate to visit twice and, each time, we discovered something new.

    Beautiful Cathedral and worth the time going to visit! Just a pity to see some areas in need of renovation!

    The guided tour was well worth the 10€, you get a short yet comprehensive tour of the building in both Italian and English.

    There may still be some fishing, but it's a popular tourist sight now. Lovely to walk around the small streets, visit some shops, sit out and have a meal/drink. We drive past the overflow car park and straight into the village. There is a small car park that could accommodate about 10 cars.

    It is a strange and eerie experience, on reflection of the visit you have to always bear in mind the reality of what happened Poggioreale and why it was abandoned, a tragic earthquake which took the lives of hundreds of people only 50 years ago and it is a living memorial to those who passed; this fact should always be front of mind if you visit. Should note that it also isn’t “open” to the public, it is fenced off with locked gates but getting in isn’t difficult and you can get over the wall very easily. We went because I am fascinated by deserted places not because we wanted to see a disaster zone (and make no mistake it is a disaster zone) but it is a time capsule and the fact that it isn’t a “tourist” spot means that you won’t have much, if any, company (we were there by ourselves). A fascinating place to visit of a bygone time, but treat it with the respect that it deserves!

    The best beach of the island by far, but also the busiest one. By walk it takes about 15 minutes from the street down to go there. It opens at 8.30.
    If it is constantly rated the best beach in 'Europe' it must be a reason!

    The water and colour of the sand are so unique. Speechless.

    Lampedusa has also the advantage of having a convenient airport to travel from Catania or Palermo, and the norther airports on summer time.

    Interesting information about tonnario, nice bird viewing. The beach has a lot of vegetal
    Debris. Once your got through it the water was clear and refreshing. 3,500 e to park and 3 e for park ticket.

    Beautiful city with lots of bars and restaurants. Plenty of room on the beach in May and the weather was brilliant.

    This is a small church that only allows a few people in at a time. It has its charm and is a nice complement to the two other churches in the square.

    Visited here and did the walk that showed the different stages that the salt workers do and the Salt Museum which was very interesting though small. They do sell some salts including bath salts that you can take home as a souvenir
