Sicilian blue... skies, tiles, doors and more.

Posted by Suzanne Turrisi on 31 Aug 2019



Blue, blue and more blue across Sicily:

Doors by the seaside painted a vibrant Mediterranean blue reflecting the closeness and depth of the sea; evening skies in a splendid cobalt; a blue sky, clear and crisp in the interior mountains of the Madonie;

'Full moon' blue in a mountain village; a white dome against a spring sky; golden stone framed by the bluest skies; festive lights in a dazzling blue adorning a church facade... the best blues.

Enjoy these images of  'Sicilian Blue' plus a few short travel notes from some of my Sicilian wanderings.


By the Tyrrhenian sea, Cefalu


Cathedral of Cefalu in its full Arab Norman splendour, against the bluest of skies.


The Mother Church, Polizzi Generosa, in the Madonie mountain light, striking against the clearest blue


Casa Cuseni, Taormina blue ...stay a while here when travelling Sicily


Classic blue majolica tiles in the Il Mercato delle Pulci tucked in behind Palermo's exotic Arab Norman Cathedral


The palest blue by the Ionain Sea, Ortigia. Linger a while here at Hotel Gutkowski along the Lungomare di Levante Elio Vittorini


Full moon blue, Polizzi Generosa up in the Madonie 


Striking cobalt blue in the spring, along Corso Umberto, Taormina
