First stop on the way from Ragusa to Prizzi, was the Valle dei Templi in Agrigento in the south of Sicily…well, unfortunately we didn’t exactly have enough time to stop, but here is the view from the car. Wish we could have gone in!
The stunning view of Ragusa Ibla, Sicily, Italy 🇮🇹from our balcony at B&B Belvedere All’Idria. I would highly recommend to stay here, not only for this amazing view, but also because the B&B host, Simone, was exceptional! He cooked his guests breakfast every morning and offered an additional service to take us around to see the nearby cities of Scicli and Modica during our stay. This view is one of my favorite memories of our trip around Sicily ❤️
The spectacular view of Mount Etna from my balcony at Villa Greta Taormina. After having our flight from Malta to Catania canceled, we were forced to take the next flight the following day at 5am. After a sleepless night and stressful travel, we were so happy to arrive to a friendly and accommodating staff and this gorgeous view!
For a vacation of relaxation away from the hustle and bustle, this is your place! Our room had been newly renovated with a chic design! Breakfast every morning had good selection with savory and sweet options. There is also a restaurant on site serving dinner. Central Taormina is only a short walk down the mountain with pedestrian stairs to the city. While it is easy to get to Taormina, it’s a bit more difficult to get back up to the hotel. The location is not in the city center, but as a result, it has an amazing view!
The skyline view of Valletta from the ferry ⛴to Silema, Malta 🇲🇹. Valletta doesn’t have a ton of hotels, so Silema is a popular place to stay since it’s a short ferry ride away from Valletta. Silema is not a particularly nice place to visit, but there are definitely lots of stores, restaurants and a transportation hub catered to the tourists in addition to a beautiful view of Valletta.
VALLETTA –> SILEMA & SILEMA –> VALLETTA
From Silema, the ferry is across the street from the store Zara near the harbour. From Valletta, you must go downstairs from the main city. On the map, the ferry stop is called VFS Valletta. A round trip ferry ticket is €2.80 and can be bought on board. There are an average of 2 ferries an hour. Click here for more information.
As my time to Malta is coming to an end, today I went to the Blue Grotto which was quite magnificent to see. Since it’s winter (and dangerously windy) there were no boat trips to the Grotto. As a result, it was a lookout for photos, but not a place to hangout as it’s just on the side of the road. So in my opinion, the Blue Grotto is better for photos while St. Paul’s Pool is a better place to hangout for the afternoon.
From Valletta, go to Bay A5 at the main bus station. Take Bus 74 for around 30min until the stop Panorama. You will have more than enough time to take your impressive photos of the grotto and still make it on the next return bus to Valletta. Unfortunately, Bus 74 runs very infrequently (like once per hour). To make this inconvenience worst, the bus returning to Valletta was 30min late.
