Forget everything you thought you knew about Sicily. Sure, the Godfather t-shirts are plentiful on the streets and the cannoli, the best in Italy. A typical breakfast is a brioche with granita (where else is ice-cream/sorbet eaten for breakfast?!). Sicilians don’t dress like what you see in “Cinema Paradiso “, but you know what? It is truly a slice of paradise and one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever set eyes on.
Pretty little beaches dot the coastline north of the peninsula
THE FOOD!! Oh the glorious food! Every street and corner were full of eateries where one could mangia bene (eat well).
Clockwise L-R: coffee granita, giant cannolo with chocolate chips, busiate pasta with clams and cassatella (fried pastry with gooey warm ricotta inside). Insert ridiculous drooling face here!
The sunset leaves me at a loss for words
We spent a wonderful day on Favignana island, which is famous for its tuna fisheries.
