DAY 11 - last day in Sicily, we touch base in Palermo for a quick visit. Thanks to Iole who maximised our short time: in 3 hrs we visited the cathedral, the little alleys around it, Palazzo dei Normanni and the Cappella Palatina, the church of S.Giovanni degli Eremiti and had time for a brioche with gelato!  http://guidaturisticapalermo.eu

DAY 10 - sunset walk inErice. We didn't like this hilltown so much, very touristy  and crowded in August. But the ride up the hill on a funicular with a spectacular view and the local patisserie with the excursion (try the warm "genovesi" and the side streets like this one!)

DAY 9 - Riserva dello Zingaro, a protected area with amazing views and "calette" ... you can reach the sea just on foot, and it is suggested to go there very early ...even better, enjoy it in low season (not in August) http://www.riservazingaro.it/index.php?lang=en
