La Terrazza di Carolina, Agrigento, Sicily

The town of Agrigento is a popular place to stay for travellers visiting the Valley of the Temples. We chose to stay at La Terrazza di Carolina – a lovely small hotel located in Cortile Modica I, just Via Atenea.

Many of the small streets in the old section of Sicilian towns are for pedestrians only however the day we arrived we could park on the street just opposite the B&B. Carolina  helped us carry our luggage up the small flight of stairs into the B&B and into the spacious reception area.

B&B Porta Bagni, Sciacca, Sicily

On a trip around Sicily, the charming town of Sciacca was an overnight stop on our travels – it is well placed between Selinunte and Agrigento. Arriving in Sciacca around 6.30pm on a Saturday night, there was a lot of traffic in Piazza Saverio Friscia and we could not access the street where B&B Porta Bagni was located as it was closed to vehicle traffic at that time.

We phoned our host, Guiseppe, who kindly came to meet us.

La Nicchia, San Vito lo Capo, Sicily

La Nicchia is a small bed and breakfast located on Via Mondello, a short walk to Via Savoia, the main street of San Vito lo Capo, and about 5 minutes walk from the beach.

On arrival we phoned the number given on the door and a charming lady called Paolo was there to greet us in moments. Paolo did not speak English however we used Google translate to communicate! Paolo gave us a map and recommended a few restaurants nearby.

B&B Il Cappero, Lipari, Sicily

B&B Il Cappero is a charming guesthouse on the island of Lipari – the largest of the Aeolian Islands in Sicily.

We caught a ferry from Mizzaro, on Sicily’s mainland, to Lipari. It is a very pleasant trip of just under one hour. Arriving at Lipari’s Marina Lunga at around 1.47pm we phoned Il Cappero and were advised that the driver who was to pick us up to take us to our accommodation, did not work between 1pm and 3pm! It was a good opportunity for us to enjoy lunch and we found a waterfront bar called Fratelli Laise with outdoor seating overlooking the water at Marina Lunga, and had a Panini and salad.
