    However the temperature is around 35 degrees throughout the day and even the wind is really warm! We have no complaints. We are falling in love with Sicily.

    ... way to one of the local agents and there answer was 'follow us'..

    So we finally got there in the Villa. It is a wunderful place with a relatively well preserved Roman Villa from 300 years AD, with lots of mosiacs.

But the most fascinating thing are ...

    From there to the ...

    A quick 2 night stay to see the couple of attractions here.

    The first one we visited was the Scala dei Turcha (or Turkish Steps).

    It is made of marl and when wet is even said to have skin benefits.

    We climbed all up and over it.
