Tuesday 16th & Wednesday 17th July 2013


We hired a car and spent the last couple of days touring the picturesque hinterland, including visiting Caltagirone, San Michele di Ganzaria, the Roman Villa del Casale with its amazingly well preserved mosaics and Piazza Armerina.

Thursday 18th July


Returned early morning to Licata and Bootlegger which we put to bed before

taking a bus across the island to Palermo, where we stay overnight before flying home via Gatwick the following day.



We take a quick look at Palermo and are slowed down by...

... a demonstration commemorating the 21st anniversary of

judge Borsellino and his 5 security guards’ assassination.

The next day, we take off from Palermo and see a sailing yacht seen from our plane
