    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.

    A brilliant day dawned and Etna was in a much better mood. Resplendent in the glory of the dazzling morning sunlight and beaming her huge icy cone, Mount Etna looked magnificent. From our hotel window it was a true delight to witness the enormity of the seething volcano which has been, and still is, such a dominant feature of the life and profile …

    ... it ain't there. Second, don't even think of touching that peach unless you're really into high drama and being ostracized in public. Tell the man (yup, they're all men) what you want. (Hold up your thumb for one. If you hold up your index finger he will assume the thumb, and you just bought two.) Once the man knows what you want, he will place it in a bag and take your pennies. You will bite into it ...

    And the countryside is gorgeous. Much of Sicily is very rugged terrain, whether along the shoreline or far inland. We traveled the narrow, steep and windy roads, stopping in the little villages ...

    ... come back in an hour or so to get one for ourselves. We made it about 40 meters before we both simultaneously realized that it would be too risky to wait (we'd been burned by midday siesta closures already) so we went strait back and got in line. Got our sandwich, bought a bottle of wine and took it back to the rooftop terrace of our B&B for lunch. Fantastic.

    One of the more unusual and interesting sites in Ortigia is the Casa Bianca ...

    ... their customers, the homemakers and the buyers for the local restaurants.

    While the fish, fishmongers and their customers take center stage, the fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats, and unidentifiables made me want to live in Catania just to have a kitchen here and be able to shop the market every day. Sorry. but it makes Pike Place look like the corner market. We couldn't resist the onions, eggplants, artichokes and ...
