Sicily 'On My Mind'

Posted by Suzanne Turrisi on 26 Aug 2020



Sicily - Trapani, Segesta, Erice, Polizzi Generosa, Petralia Soprana, Taormina, Palermo... 

It is well over a year since my last visit to Sicily, in spring 2019. 

That visit was spent enjoying ancient festivals, Sicilian music, delicious food, welcoming guests, history, mountain drives, wide vistas and travelling Sicily to wonderful spots including Cefalu, Petralia Soprana, Alimena, Taormina, Santa Tecla, Palermo and also staying in Polizzi at the house, high in the mountains. 

Looking through my photos I have chosen most, for this blog, from my last trip to Sicily and a few from previous years.

Some have been seen before yet, it's nice to revisit them.


To Go to Sicily 

I look forward to the day when overseas travel returns, full of the ease and confidence we stay in Polizzi Generosa, explore Sicily more and to go further afield.

Enjoy these photos.
