From Naples to Sigonella, Sicily

A travel blog entry by joshualyon on Dec 05, 2014

Sicily was spectacular and we are thinking to include it in our 2015 travels. Syracuse is just beautiful with lovely old buildings, quaint streets and magnificent churches - no ...

  • Traffic lanes are a guide only. ...
