Sicily, part VI

Like in most of Southern Europe, there isn’t much to do on a Sunday also in Sicily. People are mostly in church and there isn’t much activity on streets. Also, most of shops are closed at least most of the day.

On our fifth day we visited Siracusa (Syracuse) in south-east Sicily, an ancient Greek city that is also known as the birthplace of Archimedes. Then we moved inland into mountainous territory and visited little towns of Noto, Modica and Ragusa.

Ragusa Ibla – the old town of Ragusa. The town of Ragusa is in two parts – the old town is on top of one mountain, and the newer part on a hill just next to it.
