I have decided to re-launch this thread prior to my upcoming, fourth visit to Sicily: a land that I have been entranced & intrigued by for many years. I have re-organised, re-edited and re-selected some of the pictures from my previous thread; of my various trips to, and travels around, Sicily

Sicily has so much to offer the visitor or traveller: Arabic, Greek, Roman, Spanish & Norman architecture, and remnants of those various cultures & cuisines; beaches; vineyards; an active volcano; a variety of island archipelagos; and its own unique culture and identity - very distinct from mainland Italy.

On my upcoming trip I will be based in Ragusa Ibla - a baroque town in the south-east of the island - a town I have yet to explore at all - but feel very familiar with already due to the 'Inspector Montalbano' series having being filmed here ( based on the Andrea Camilleri novels). I will, of course, post those images upon returning in September.

The pictures I am about to post will have minimal accompanying information, mainly location & place names - but I intend to post more information, alongside any new photos I may take and post in Ragusa and its surrounds.

I'm Italian from Tuscany, i also have been in Sicily many times, some fantastic destinations you forgot in your pictures:

- San Vito Lo Capo
- Taormina
- Sciacca
- Cavagrande del Cassibile (the canyon near noto)
- Turkish Staircase (near Agrigento)
- Messina Area (Tindari)
- Piazza Armerina, the roman mosaics
- Pantelleria
- Lampedusa
- Eolie Islands...now for example Stromboli the other Volcano is erupting

and so on...

There is still so much to watch for you i think )...Sicily it's a very incredible Land...

I have actually been to Taormina and to San Vito Lo Capo - but the photographs were neither very good nor very numerous.....

Look in a few weeks for my pictures from Ragusa... :)


Thanks everyone for the nice comments..... :cheers:
