Return to Catania and Etna

A travel blog entry by sam.tank on Jun 08, 2014

On Friday I came back to Catania, mainly as a link to get to Naples, and partly because I wanted to be in the town for the weekend, and see it from a slightly different point of view than last time.

The place I am staying in is more like a b&b than a hostel, which has gone through some refurbishment meaning that there is no use of a …

Well, last full day in Sicily, so off to visit the town we have based ourselves at. We are down near the coast, but the old town itself is 200 metres high up a very winding, steep road. It is an old Sicilian town with narrow streets and plenty of shopping, both low and high end. Reason for the high end is that other than airports, it is on of the few places you can buy expensive items without having to pay the VAT if you are a non EC person. Usually you ...

... about doing a "tour" around Palermo for a few Euro! After some bartering, we decided to take an "alternative" tour of the sights of Palermo. Wow, what a tour, down very narrow streets, which we had no idea where we were...could have been off to an organ donation centre! Saw a few markets, including seafood, meat, goods etc. The churches were a surprise. You can see the Arabic influence in the city and churches, some of the design and work was stunning. The opera house is ...

... the town inch by inch. We got some irritated looks from the locals as we should not have been there! We got past in some places with mills to spare. Thank god we did not need to reverse! To say I was not sh8$&4!g myself is an understatement! Neil had to get out of the car (Volvo SUV) to guide us through! When I saw we had got through to the other side, I was relieved and considered getting out of the car to kiss the ground! We decided to stay the night ...

Etna

Early start to make the Ferrovia Circumennea train that goes around Mt Etna. We managed to find the train station thanks to Sue. After seeing us 4 passengers on the platform, we noticed that they pumped extra diesel into the train! At 9 we set off on a 114km journey which took just over 3 hours. The landscape contrasted from market gardens, vines, orchards to waste land of volcanic black basalt. It ...

    Lovely friendly staff. Room was comfy, and breakfast was more than enough, though seemed very stale on the first day and fresh on the second. Refurbishments meant no access to the advertised shared kitchen or laundry facilities. Great location and price. Very noisy when other residents were up and about!
