The first snowstorms happened on the Alps, which are very visible even from the city center, especially the Monviso, which is an amazing landmark for us being shaped as a perfect pyramid which stands out among the major mounts of the Alps.
Tropea is located along the Tirrenian coast on a rocky spur which overlooks the whole Gulf of St. Euphemia and the bluest sea. On clear days, like the one I have been so lucky to experience, you can see also the island of Stromboli, in a distance, one of the Eolian Islands
On my last day in Palermo, the capital of Sicily, I decided to go visit the UNESCO heritage sites of the city, listed under the title "The Arab-Norman sites of Palermo, Monreale and Caflù". In fact it's not a single site but a complex of buildings located in 3 different cities, all of which dating back to the Arab and the Norman domination of the Island.
I finally went down to Palermo. I lived my whole trip to Sicily in anticipation for this. I had great expectations about Palermo, especially after its Arab-Norman Cathedral was listed by Unesco among the world heritage sites.
I left Marsala after a very good and very abundant breakfast and started driving my car, direction Palermo I decided to add another cultural pit stop in Monreale, a world famous place for Mosaics.
I choose to visit Marsala for two reasons: the Unification of Italy and the Salt Pans.
Leaving Caltagirone was sad but necessary to complete my grand tour of Sicily. I drove approximately 1.30 minutes to reach the city of Agrigento which is famous for one of the most important attractions of the antique times: Valle dei Templi.
