Awaking in our new favorite Nonna's yard we hit the road to catch the short ferry over to Sicily to see what it was all about. Arriving the port of Messina it got us just about excited as every other port town. It seems if you have a major port your town is usually a major let down. After a quick pizza stop the decision was made to navigate Sicily anticlockwise and chopping down the middle. Thus, we zoomed Harold west bound toward Palermo. Along the way we passed ...

The arena in Syracuse was a round center for games much like the Colosseum. It was the second largest to the Colosseum and was used for a variety of things such as chariot races and gladiatorial fights.

In his left hand, he holds a ...

Agrigento is not very exciting but in its day it was a major Greek city with many temples dating from the 5C BC. The site is large, 3km in total, so it was rather a long hot walk and we were pleased to ...
