Today is beach day, but before going to the beach we would visit a small town (old fisherman village) called Marzememi. first of all the trip that looked easy on the map turned out to be a long trip through forgotten streets in the middle of nowhere. Anyway ultimately we got where we needed to be. As such a nice village, but of this 'old fisherman village' little was left. It looked very touristic (nothing wrong with that) plenty of ...
... big quantity.
We stayed the evening at home with some home made (?) anti pasto's and wines etc . But what started on the terrace was quickly disturbed by a large number of wasps so we had to retract inside the house to finish our meal. Once the food was gone it was OK to be outside again and enjoy the lovely evening with beautiful views of the sea, the stars and the 'nothing’ around us.
... down between these 3 streets. A bit easier than Ragusa and Modica with their maze of streets.
But in the end too much churches is too much churches…
We went back to our home just outside of the city to drop our fruit and food for tomorrow morning and take a quick dive in the pool, ready to go back to the city for dinner. Of course outside, of course hot, of course nice food…
... as the Sicilian variety. This was quite amazing as the setting of a good colour for the oranges is said to be determined by the number of low night time temperatures, the optimal being around freezing point - and temperatures never sink to freezing point at our coastal village of Crowdy Head.
Our trip for the day would take us across the Plain of Catania to historic Syracuse, a coastal city some 70 kilometers south of Catania.
Sunday we decide to tour the Islo of Ortigia a short 10 minute walk from our digs.
This little settlement is established in 734BC and as you can imagine the history is just boggling in comparison to our own. Funnily enough the kids sucked it up, it is a very beautiful space.
