San Lucido to Ficcarra on Sicily

Today we continued down the Italian coast to the ‘toe’ of Italy where we caught a ferry across to Sicily. A separate ferry was loading big trucks as our ferry was loading cars. It was impressive to see the giant semis making a 90 degree turn onto their ferry.

The whole operation was very efficient. They were loading and unloading our ferry at the same time. It was all very fast.

It is a beautiful day so the views as we cruised the Mediterranean were great. It actually was a very short ride

We are staying up in the mountains above the north coast of Sicily. The place is called Villa Ginevra.

For dinner the hotel made us a reservation at a restaurant even farther up in the mountains. It was a good thing we had a reservation because there were two big parties going on there too.

  1. Maddie, thanks for your comment!❤️😊 I love it when people comment on my blog. We didn’t go swimming in that swimming pool. But I think we will go swimming in the pool at the place we are staying tonight.
