  Flags Italy and Sicily  
2 weeks vacation of coastal Sicily with the tramper. Sicily the multicultural island in the south of Italy offers manifold impressions. Our round trip of coastal Sicily with our VW bus started in Messina where we 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 we 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!! We also had the chance to visit two vineyards in Sicily: in the south Valle dell´ Acate as well as De Batoli Marco e C., which is an outstanding vineyard in Marsala. On the way back home we stopped in Tuscany at the very impressive Tarot Garden of Niki de Saint Phalles...
