This seaside Greco-Roman city is definitely worth a visit. It’s the southernmost point of Sicily and, whilst being home to a number of archaeological sites and ruins due to its importance in Ancient Greek times, it is also a haven of little identical labyrinth streets and quaint shops.
Via Cavour – shopping street
Also a great place to stock up on Sicilian foods. I bought pistachio pesto and limoncello.
Piazza Duomo (Cathedral Square)
Santa Lucia Alla Badia in the Piazza Duomo
The Maniace Castle (Castello Maniace)
In front of which we ended up in a pop up music bar that evening…drinking ‘Godmother’ cocktails (just pure vodka & amaretto!)
The markets…full of gorgeous looking food
and crystal clear water
...which you can access from little ‘beaches’
…and the food was only ‘okay’.
Then in the evening we went to Trattoria Pizzeria Pescomare
where the food was tastier but it was always difficult to find a member of staff for food or drinks – everything seemed very confused!
Whilst overall the food wasn’t the best here, this charming city is a ‘must do’ in Sicily.
