Just adding a few comments here on our travels to Sicily in 2016. ekscrunchy, I hope you do get there soon, though given the current restrictions, it’s seeming more and more unlikely for this year. I do have a trip report which I’ll repost.

I’m one of those folks who stayed in Scicli and absolutely loved it. I had initially planned to stay in Modica but I do have some mobility issues and since it’s basically all uphill and downhill, I was glad we stayed elsewhere. But we found Scicli to be a perfect city - just large enough to have enough of interest for a few days and small enough for a feeling of intimacy. And as a huge Montalbano fan, we were thrilled when we ran into a filming of an episode!The Fodorite who inspired me by her description was Dayle.

We also stayed in Selinunte at the B&B that is mentioned above. We loved it! Yes, the decor is a bit odd, but the host couple were most warm and welcoming, and the breakfast was superb. We also loved the site nearby. It was a bit too cool to swim when we were there but the extensive garden is lovely and a great place to relax.

Trip report:
A brief but selective report on our Sicilian sojourn

He may not be wrong.

Trip to Sicily has been loss of money and all hotels/inns have been incredibly kind.

Not so for trip to Patagonia which I can discuss on another thread.

So sorry about that eck. I was very jealous when my friends who live in Venice managed to get their 2 week holiday in Sicily earlier in the year. Glad that the hoteliers were so kind.
