Hey dolls, how are all of my lovely readers doing? Its been a while since I’ve done a post, I keep meaning to and, oops – life gets in the way. But I’m very excited about this one!
I’m finally posting about my lovely little holiday break to Italy with my boyfriend. We loved Rome so much in December 2016, so, we decided to pick another beautiful place in Italy to visit in December 2017, we picked the amazing Sicily and it definitely didn’t disappoint!
Here are the top 3 places we explored, and I hope it inspires you to visit one day – Enjoy!
There are so many wineries in Sicily, it was a very hard choice between them all wanting to get it right. We ended up choosing Murgo out of convenience as it was closest to our hotel and Sicilian taxi’s cost an absolute bomb – but it ended up being the best choice!
Everything about Murgo was great, their fresh wines, home grown and made food, beautiful views at every corner, orange trees and the cutest friendly dogs running around!
Mount Etna – Europe’s Tallest Active Volcano
I was so nervous to go up mount etna but I knew I would regret it if I didn’t! We rented a car and drove up the winey roads with the most magnificent views you could ever imagine. We thought it couldn’t get any better, but we we’re absolutely blown away once we got to the first stop – 3000 meters high!
For our first time on Mount Etna we we’re recommended by a local and our hotel receptionist to go up there and explore alone rather than get a guided tour, and if you plan on going I recommend the same too!
If there is enough snow on Mount Etna you can ski on there, which is what we hoped to do but unfortunately, we had amazing sunny weather when we went.
Taormina – Ancient Greek Theatre & Villa Comunale
Taormina is such a pretty and authentic Sicilian town in the hills, the pretty and picturesque houses and streets are beautiful enough, but the views from the town are mind blowing.
We visited the ancient Greek theatre & the villa comunale before having lunch in a cute restaurant sitting on top of ancient roman ruins – I’ll let the pictures tell the story for this one.
There are endless places to explore in Sicily that you are literally spoilt for choice, but these are the places we chose for our 4 nights in Sicily.
I hope this has inspired you to visit Sicily one day because it is definitely worth it.
(If you are thinking about it – I recommend staying in Taormina or Palermo and booking your tours to these places from there)
