Des Etrangers Hotel is located on the shores of the gorgeous island of Ortygia. It is ideally situated for strolls to the local historic sites, interesting shops and fascinating narrow lane ways of Syracuse. Formerly an old private home, the hotel has been beautifully restored to its former glory, with wonderful marble flooring, and adorned with fine furnishings. Rooms are tastefully appointed - if a little dark and austere - and very comfortable. Our room had a small balcony with splendid views of the Ionian Sea. The beautiful top floor bar and dining room has fantastic views and is a wonderful place to while away a few very pleasant hours over a gin and tonic - or two.

First erecting as temple by the Ancient Greeks over 2,000 years ago, the building has now been converted into a Basilica styled cathedral. It stood as the largest building we visited in Sicily, and was unmatched in beauty ...
St. Mary's in Siracusa, Italy has a history in its walls alone. Each part of the building has its own place in time and culture. The structure has columns still standing that the Greeks originally put up for the temple of the virgin Artemis. The columns are as wide as 4 feet and go back for around 12 columns. This temple covered a large area and would ...
I was trying to catch a flight to Shannon from Sigonella NAS, so I fight an overnight ferry from the port of Naples, to the port of Catania. From there I took a cab to the NAS. The flight to Shannon was canceled, so I am doing the waiting game thing again. I need some rest, so I am staying in an actual hotel room for the night. Hopefully there is a flight tomorrow to get ...
