  • Il Primo Giorno di ScuolaIt is lunedi which means it is our first day at school. We made sure our alarms were set early enough so that we could get our coffee fix before we went to class. Feeling like locals, we went to Posted by Signorina in Italia 2016 | Jan 4, 2016
  • Il Vaticano con Il PapaWe discovered today, while crossing the bridge towards Castel Sant' Angelo, that we had Saint Peter's just down the road.

  • Chapter 54: Lost and Lovin' itThe beautiful sunshine and warm temperatures of Italy were a welcome change from the quickly declining winter weather in Switzerland.

  • Thanksgiving in DomodossolaWhere is Domodossola? Well, if you couldn't have Turkey for Thanksgiving, what is the next best food to eat? Italian of course. So we drove to Italy. I picked a random spot off the map and we drove there. It Posted by trackers in ¡Global Nada! | Dec 18, 2015
  • SalernoThe Italian portion of our trip is rapidly coming to a close. Tomorrow we drive to Rome airport and fly to Athens. We left Modica early to spend another day in Siracusa, and the women who run the Posted by jonshapiro in Vagabonding at 60 | Dec 5, 2015
  • Modica and SurroundsThe next day, somewhat reluctantly, we left Siracusa, and made our way to Modica Alta. Once again our GPS failed us, and what should have taken about 1& 1/2 hours took at least twice that long. We ended Posted by jonshapiro in Vagabonding at 60 | Dec 2, 2015
  • Mt. Aetna and Siracusa (Sicily)To get to Sicily we took the ferry to Messina, which was quick and easy. Then we drove on to Nicolosi, near the slopes of slopes of Mt. Aetna, which took Posted by jonshapiro in Vagabonding at 60 | Nov 30, 2015

  • Syracuse - Sicily in a NutshellIn so many ways Sicily is a microcosm of Italy. It has volcanoes, mountains and beaches, together with ancient cities containing a wealth of historical architecture. Its volcanic soils and sub-tropical climate nurture an abundance of oranges, lemons, almo Posted by Hawkson in Blissful Adventures | Nov 26, 2015
  • The Baroque Cities of SicilyAt 9.00pm on January 11th 1693 a massive earthquake struck southwestern Sicily. It completely levelled several cities that had already been badly damaged by an earlier trembler and killed more than 60,000 people. The epicentre decimated Noto – a medieval Posted by Hawkson in Blissful Adventures | Nov 24, 2015
  • Picture the PastLook around you; look out of the window; look down the street. Then wonder just how much of what you see will still be around more than a thousand years hence, or even five hundred years, or just a hundred. Posted by Hawkson in Blissful Adventures | Nov 21, 2015
  • TropeaIt was with some reluctance that we left Matera, and drove to this small seaside town on the Tyrrhenian coast in Calabria. Bustling in the summer, it is largely dead at this time of year, and many of the restaurants Posted by jonshapiro in Vagabonding at 60 | Nov 20, 2015
