    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.

    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.

    A wonderful site high in Taormina. Great views and an excellent opportunity to see a Greco/Roman theatre.

    This does not always feature on top lists for Palermo which makes no sense. There is so much to see here in what is also a working government building.
    In a city with many churches the Palantine Chapel is still a stand out. Next up are the Royal apartments which are interesting and beautiful.
    The garden is a welcome change of pace but I would give the cafe a miss.
    Then there are the art galleries. When we visited this includes Steve McCurry "Freedom" which is very powerful, there will be something for everyone though.
    Tips:
    Not everything is always open so make sure in advance. We went on a Friday when everything was open but I don't know if that is always the case. On Thursday hardly anything was.
    It gets very busy with many groups including schools so definitely try to get there for opening time.

    It's a fantastic cathedral from the outside, it has a great view from the roof and it is beautiful on the inside.
    We visited in May 2022 on a weekday and there are restoration works going on inside and some scaffolding outside but no sign of any work being done on the 4 days we were there.
    It is set in a small square which like the church is open at 7.30am. The roof etc don't open until 10. This makes little sense as the early morning would be a much better time to see it.
    We got there just before 10 and there were plenty of people there and it is busy all day. I would recommend getting that first slot as it just gets busier after that.
    Well worth it, I can't see why they don't do more and the scaffolding will be there forever if no one ever uses it.

    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!

    This is a lovely cathedral and if you are interested in history a really great example of the Norman architecture in Sicily. You can climb the tower with a spectacular view. Some of the stones outside have the mason's signs visible so look out for those! And try to find the pillar with Noah!

    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.

    Lots of folks show up to see the clock and bell tower come alive at noon. All the parts move to the music of Ave Maria. The tower is beautiful the show is a bit underwhelming.

    You need to book a tour, and try to do it the day before, because this is a very popular place to visit. There are visits in Italian and English, and they are held by former factory workers, very passionate about their jobs/lives. The factory has been renovated for the purpose of the visits, and contains very nice exhibits. A must!!!

    In November 2021, I spent four nights in the historical center of Noto with my husband and elderly parents as part of our 14-day private tour with HandySicily. I will include a couple of pictures because even the most extravagant adjectives could not possibly describe the beauty of this city. Just...wow!

    Incredible and most enjoyable 2 hour visit was about the minimum time. I would have enjoyed another hour. Easy entrance to the site 10 euros very well worth it. Amazing views of the temples particularly Concordia. Good place to stop for a sit and a drink part way along the walk. Recommend the freshly squeezed orange juice.

    Notto, this Southern City of Sicily has a unique look, a golden look.
    Yes, It is not Venice, Rome nor Florence.
    Neither is it Ortigia nor the Old City of Taormina which are more beautiful and special if you look just in Sicily.
    But still Notto is very beautiful , and if you happen to visit it on a sunny day (which actually is almost always the case) its golden color gets even richer.
    Best time of the day is of course...Sunset.
    Try to be there then, and take many, many pictures!!

    When you visit a world famous place like this you wait a capable staff, sadly it wasn't like that. We had a tiny guide that learned some lines trying to speak in english but was really hard to understand what she was saying. I want to think that was an unfortunate day even because the red group had a better experience.
    The place itself is amazing, so quiet and peaceful. Walking around the salt pans I made a thousands pictures with amazing colours even if is fall.
