Sicily July 2016

A very good GUIDE for Sicily travel




Nebrodi Mountains












An oak forest on 1500 m altitude




A stop for coffee and Pizza slice


On our way down from the mountains on northern Sicily.
You can see the 2 volcano islands of Volcano and Lipari


Breakfast at the hotel in the ancient hill-top city of Erice day 2.
The hotel Il Carmine is an ancient monestary from 1423.


On this view from Erice you see Trapani


The city of Corleone


Corleone is a fictional Mafia family in Mario Puzos book
and Francis Ford Coppola's film trilogy "The Godfather".
The real family name was originally Andolini and they lived in Corleone.




The valley of temples at Agrigento


Our hotel on day 2




South east of Sicily




Arrive at the old town on the island Ortygia in Siracusa


A good exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci with a lot of models of his inventions.




Here Claes is building a bridge




Fontana di Artemide






Narrow streets and no traffic








The imposing cathedral of Siracusa was built around a Greek structure
the Temple of Athena (or Minerva) and its massive columns very evident.


Take an old temple, build a new front and voilą, you have a new church








Madame, MADAME, M A D A M E!!!. Not allowed to take photos here.
But Claes managed to take one picture.


No person on Sicily is without balcony.
ALL apartments on second floor or higher have a balcony
Like a good human rights or decent living assurance here
