2 weeks vacation of coastal Sicily with the tramper. Sicily the multicultural island in the south of Italy offers manifold impressions. My round trip of coastal Sicily with a VW bus started in Messina where I drove in clockwise direction around the island: Messina, Taormina, Mount Etna, Brucoli, Augusta, Siracusa, Noto, Acate, Agrigento, Marsala, Trapani, Palermo, Cefalu, Castelbuono and back to where I have started (Messina). Sicily has more to offer than you can grab within two weeks! Very impressive was the crest of Mount Etna, the viewable richness of former days in Noto, Palermo and much more!! I also had the chance to visit a few vineyards in Sicily: in the south Valle dell´ Acate
as well as De Batoli Marco e C.
, which is an outstanding vineyard in Marsala. However; no recommendation is given for COS
as 7 of 10 wines failed - not sure what they sell to one-time-customers.
