Sì sì! Sicily! Day 1 & 2
View from the plane of Mount Etna
And once again: I'm back, baby! Sicily was fun, interesting, and incredibly hot. Unfortunately, when arriving back home I was welcomed by wind, rain and Netherlands losing from Argentina in the World Cup semi-finals, so I'm a bit blue :-(
Luckily I could look back to a great vacation with some nice holiday photos!
Day 1: Catania - Enna - Agrigento
When we arrived at Catania Airport we picked up our rental car and first drove to Enna (tip: never hire from Greenmotion! We had an awful experience! We were ripped off, and they are totally oblivious to the term 'customer care', both at the counter in Catania and at their 'customer service' in the UK.)
Luckily the rest of the holiday went pretty smoothly!
Jeans: Zara / Top: Mango / Shoes: Mint Velvet / Jacket: Tatiana's Delights on Etsy / Scarf: Alice by Temperley
Belt: Mango / Bag: Longchamp / Sunglasses: H&M / Necklace: Cristalina
Via the hilltop town of Enna we went to the Villa Romana del Casale, famous for its largest and most complex collection of Roman mosaic floors in the world.
Dress: Mango / Hat: H&M / Flip flops: Havaianas / Earrings: Cristalina
If you ever want to spent the night in a hotel room that is completely over the top, B&B La Dolce Vita in Agrigento is a safe bet! I just couldn't say no to that awesome baroque bed when I came across it on Booking.com ! But apart from the crimson red and gold interior, their service is great too!
Day 2: Agrigento - Ragusa - Noto
The next day though, I had rather a loud wake-up call....
After a yummy breakfast, the first stop of the day was at the 'Valle dei Templi', an extensive archeological site of ancient Greek temples and other architecture just outside the town of Agrigento. The photos pretty much speak for themselves. It was gorgeous!
After a 2.5 hour drive in our tiny Smart car, we arrived at the little baroque town of Ragusa. Very picturesque and a great atmosphere, so the perfect place to enjoy some 'Insalata Caprese'.
After getting lost in all the wonderful small streets in Ragusa, we luckily still arrived just in time at the Kallikoros Resort, just outside Noto, for a quick swim in the pool!
To be continued in tomorrow's post!

Love this post Tatiana, not just because of the wonderful repliKates, but because of all the wonderful photos and descriptions of where you were. I think my favorite was you jumping on the bed! :)

Thank you Susan! I always love reading other people's travel stories, so I thought I'd share mine as well :-) And I felt jumping on such a bed was mandatory ;-)

Hi Tatiana. I enjoy your blog very much. Love to see the travel posts and your outfits when you travel -as well as pics of foreign locations! I'm a Kate fan from the U.S. My favorite outfit of yours from the Sicily post is the navy striped dress. I love it because it is your choice and not an outfit you copied from Kate Middleton. Trust your instincts because what you choose on your own looks beautiful on you. 😊

Thank you Vanessa! That is so sweet of you to say! I'll keep it in mind and plan to post some more outfit posts that are more originally 'me' ;-)
