Can't wait. One more week until we return for our stay with Nico at Sant'Antonio. Taking tests with us, just in case. Don't want any nasty surprises sprung on us!! Hopefully, all will be back to normal for you tomorrow, Our first three days will be spent at the Albergo Milano in Varenna on Lake Como.
Hopefully, your days in Rome, will be free of this dreadful Covid.
I’ve been thinking about this and my first reaction was “no way”, but you may have a point. I do like a wholewheat honey cornetto.5. A good cornetto is better than a croissant.
Hi Jim, just now seeing your message so sorry for the late reply. We started in Palermo and then went to Agrigento where we stayed in a wonderful Agriturismo, Passo dei Briganti and then went to Siracusa. Tomorrow is our last day in Siracusa and we will go to Napoli for about a week. It was my first time in Palermo and I loved the chaotic, craziness but my partner Sam, not so much. I would like to return as I found six days was not enough time to explore everything and see the outskirts. From Agrigento, we went to the Valley of the Temples, Villa Romana del Casale and Caltagirone. On the way to Siracusa, we stopped in Ragusa and today we visited Noto. I am tired just writing this.Thanks Cathy...I hope we are on the mend.
Happy birthday and have a great trip to Sicily. Let me know if you need any recommendations. Where are you going to be?
We are there now! Finally! Although we have to leave Thursday to get home in time for our granddaughter’s high school graduation on Saturday. We have to take a COVID test on Wednesday and test positive before we are allowed to fly. I’m getting nervous.Good idea! When we stayed nearby at Sant Antonio a few years ago, there was a good place to get prepared foods. It was in a small strip mall at an intersection east of Montepulciano where you turn for the road to the town. There was a fruit and on Wetesvegetable place plus this prepared foods place next door, owned by the same family. We got dinner from there a few times.
I’m so sorry you had to miss part of your vacation because of COVID. Go again sooner than later.
