You might have heard from the news that last week a massive storm hit few areas in Northen Italy and Southern France.
After visiting Noto, the so-called capital of the Baroque style I drove just few kilometres, along the Valley and ended up at two cities that really surprised me: Scicli and Modica.
I drove approximately 30 minutes on the highway following the signs for Catania. Taormina is halfway between Massina and Catania, located on a rock overlooking the Ionian Sea, the Etna Volcano and the plain of Naxos, which is well known for its citrus cultivation (lemons and oranges).
Marsala is not just a fine that is perfect for desserts bit also a city in Sicily where the largest and most colorful salt pans of the mediterranea sea are found
I posted a photo on my facebook page today and to my great surprise it went viral.
Palazzo Madama is a National Monument. Before being a Museum, hosting a prominent collection which spans from the Romanesque and Gothic artifacts, to the local Renaissance paitings and the Baroque architecture, it is one of the oldest building in town, as well as one of the oldest in Italy.
I believe that a simple and cheap way to discover a new city, including the areas that are out of the tourism circuits or that are not home to a famous or specific attraction it to buy a tickect for a tram and ride it from its origination until the final stop.
