Discovering Sicily in the middle of October with family
Most of the time you hear about people visiting Sicily during the Summer months to enjoy the sun and swim in the beautiful beaches the Italian island has to offer.
Well for us it’s a different story. Having to work most of the time during the Summer it is hard to escape and enjoy those aspects.
So we decided to take a short flight from Athens to Sicily.
After a short flight delay due to volcanic activity from Mount Etna, we arrived in Catania. From there we drove to Palermo where we stayed for a few days.
Palermo is somehow forgotten by time in many areas and is justly called the Havana of Europe.
I think the images speak for themselves.
Our next stay was in the beautiful town of Taormina.
After spending some time during the Summer in Amorgos Greece, going to Taormina was an epic way to live another portion from the movie “The Big Blue”.
Ancient Greek ruins, pizza, the blue Mediterranean Sea and the constantly erupting Etna in the background was breathtaking.
And best of all, during our trip, the weather was warm and sunny.
