Cefalu and area

Our second campsite at Finale near Cefalu and we are exploring the mountains again. Cefalu is a very nice City with a wonderful Duomo or Cathedral, great sandy beach and lots of shops and cafes.

This picture is a modern sculpturs idea of a cloud, we will leave that one to your imagination.
The back streets are narrow and cobbled. Lots to see here including many mountain villages.
The cobbled street in the picture however is at a Greco Roman town in the hills called Halaesa, circa 1st century BC


Arrived in Sicily after short ferry crossing. Took a ride up to Etna valley. The Volcano looked very grand. It erupted four days after we were there.
The island is wonderful, mountains and valleys everywhere. It is also much cleaner and friendly than southern Italy. Weather is good and we are staying for the rest of the winter.


Moved down to Tropea ready for Lee Han and Lucy to visit. Had a great week with them. Very sad when they had to leave.
