Here is an example of nearly all the points where we have stopped for a break or stayed for 1 to 2 nights. Sicily is divided in 9 provinces: Palermo (capital), Agrigento, Catania, Caltanissetta, Enna, Messina, Ragusa, Syracuse and Trapani. For our planning we visited 6 out of the 9 in which Caltanissetta and Enna were excluded. Our trip started in Catania (see Fiat500 icon on the Western side of the island) and ended at the same place (finish flag).Ayumi Kuramae Izioka
That is my favorite quote by Goethe and I can say I totally agree with it!
For me Catania is number 1 sicilian city but if you have more time to spend on the island you have also to visit Palermo ( it is the “capital” or the chief town of Sicily). Close to Palermo you can find also an amazing beach called Mondello.Dessy Ivanova
How to reach the town
Aidone is not easy to reach, but as all the good things, it’s worth the try. From Catania airport there is a bus who connects the town three times per day, and the journey takes two hours ( http://www.interbus.it/). Bus is the only public transport available in this part of Sicily, but it’s is also possible to rent a car in the airport and transform the journey into a On The Road adventure. Anyway, the car is not essential in the town, but it’s a good idea for travelling around in the neighborhood. For the accommodation, there are a lot of nice and cheap Bed&Breakfast, where it’s easy to feel the hospitality and the warmth of the inhabitants…the feeling is to be at home!The Rovers Curly
Eat, Pray & Fall in Love with Catania
Wowf**k. Excuse my brusque way of describing my state of mind when I first touched down in the city of Catania. Incredibly overwhelmed and in disbelief of the beautiful city that ringed around me, that the only words traversing both my brain and mouth were ‘wow’ and ‘f**k’. Wowf**k!Finlay May

Aidone: a tiny jewel hidden in Sicily
January 1, 1970
There is almost nobody in Europe, and also in the entire world (I dare to say), who doesn't know Italy and it's bigger island, Sicily. But, not...
