    Ok so you haven't seen the old Sicilian police drama Montalbano but I couldn't resist visiting some of the locations as they are near where the ferry from Malta arrives in Sicily. First was Punta Secca the delightful small harbour with lighthouse (Montal fans will recognise it). Then on to old Ragusa town perched high on a hill top with LOTS of steps and 30 degrees in the shade. For those who noticed that in Montalbano there were very few people walking around apart from the main characters the reason was they alI probably had died of heart attacks... And Ragusa was nearly the death of me too as i went intensifying shades of red. While the beardy one (who had very little sleep last night and we got up at 5am) was deffo a bit peaky. Pics uploaded including friendly bloke who showed me a short cut to avoid more steps x xRead more

    Day 369: Val di Noto

    February 18 in Italy

    Next world heritage site time! Hopped in the car and headed out of Syracuse, heading westwards and inland. As I mentioned yesterday, a devastating earthquake struck this area in 1693 and during the rebuilding over the next century, most of it was done in baroque style unique to this area. There are a bunch of towns on the world heritage list for this reason, so we picked out a few interesting ones and headed over.

    The first stop was Noto itself, which turned out to be quite lovely. Nice quiet streets, picturesque buildings and lots to see. It was all very charming - a little touristy but that didn't really bother us. We wandered around for a couple of hours, ducking in and out of churches and other buildings and just enjoying the atmosphere. It was also warm and sunny which helped!

    Drove to the next town of Modica, where it was a little quieter and a bit cloudier. Not as impressive, and nowhere seemed to be open for lunch which was a bit distressing! Eventually we found a place selling fish and chips, which turned out to actually mean fried anchovies and chips which was also a bit distressing! But at least the buildings were nice.

    We headed over to the final town of Ragusa, though by now we were both a bit over it and wishing we'd stayed in Noto. Ragusa was more of the same, though just as quiet as Modica had been - at least we weren't trying to find lunch though! Looked at a handful of buildings since we felt obliged, then drove the couple of hours back home to Syracuse. Felt very lazy and went to the pizza shop nearby for dinner. Not the greatest pizzas we've ever had, but still good enough!

    Ragusa Ibla

    June 18, 2017 in Italy

    Ragusa ist eine uralte Siedlung... Sikuler, Griechen (ab dem 3.Jahrh.vor Christus), Karthager, Römer, Byzantiner, Araber aus Nordafrika, Normannen usw. Nach dem Erdbeben von 1693 wurden 2 Städte wieder aufgebaut, Ragusa Superiore und Ragusa Ibla, der alte Teil. Wir sind die 264 Stufen zwischen Ober-und Unterstadt rauf und runter gegangen, Gott sei Dank bei nur 26°.
    Der alte Teil Ibla vefällt in Teilen, so richtig zum wohnen finden die Leute die vielen Treppen usw. nicht mehr bequem genug. Die Anzahl der leerstehenden Häuser ist erschreckend, sowohl in Superior als auch in Ibla. Für Touristen hat das alles den besonderen Charme. Die vielen Kirchen sind auch die Besichtigung wert, allerdings spielt sich nachmittags lesen erst ab 16Uhr ab, die Siesta von 12 bis 16:00 Uhr wird strikt eingehalten.Read more

    Marina di Ragusa

    June 16, 2017 in Italy

    Wir wohnen in einer Seitenstraße ca. 3min vom Strand. Der Ort ist ein Badeort, Mitte Juni noch ziemlich ruhig . Die Restaurants sind nicht schlecht.
    Heute Strand, morgen wollen wir Syracusa besuchen. Das ist ca. eineinhalb Autostunden entfernt.

    Punta Braccetto

    April 10, 2017 in Italy

    Lundi, 10 avril 2017 bis

    Le trajet d'aujourd'hui (100km) nous fait traverser une région comme la Costa del Plastico de l'année passée. Des km2 de serres où poussent tomates, aubergines, brocolis etc. pour nous, qui voulons toute l'année des légumes frais. Notre lieu d'étape se trouve à Punta Braccetto, le camping Scarabeo, où nous avons un emplacement de rêve pour au moins de jours. Une bière va accompagner le magnifique coucher du soleil.Read more
