Photo Montage: Western Sicily

The old saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" is repeated so often because it's true. Today, rather than write about our trip to Sicily, I thought I'd share some of my favorite scenery photos. I like some for the quality of the shot, others because of the subject. I think they give a good overview of what the western side of Sicily has to offer. I hope you enjoy them.

Locals told us Sicily is the "Wild West" of Italy. Indeed, we experienced the different interpretations of laws in Sicily than on the mainland. Sicily also has stunning natural beauty like the western part of the US. Sure the landscape is different, but it's breathtaking in places. 

Have you been to Sicily? What do you think?

  1. Great stuff! I have been to almost all of these places when on a roadtrip around Sicily years ago.

    Just a word of advice for those of you thinking of going there. Don't make the same mistake as I have - don't go there in the beginning of august, when every Italian is there. :)

    1. True enough, Marko. I've heard its rather crowded in August. Late June/early July was fine, though.
