7 reasons we will visit Sicilia again {plus: a BIG news!}

why everyone should visit Sicily it's quite obvious. if you can't figure it out yet you either a) don't have enough informations b) are insensitive to beauty.

anyway, i feel that one time is not enough either. Sicily is a region you should visit over and over again. here, i tell you why we will.

7 reasons we will visit Sicilia again

1. breakfast with granita and brioche
it's a ritual. a round and chubby pastry, a thick layer of fresh cream, coffee {or almond, strawberry, mulberry, and more} flavoured water ice. the best way to start the day, the best breakfast habit i've ever met while travelling. i can't understand why we are not adopting this amazing tradition here in Veneto, too. shall we sign a petition?
2. there is everything a traveller dreams
natural reserves, UNESCO world heritage sites, amazing seaside and crystal clear, blue sea. mountains. museums, great theatre tradition, dramatic landscapes that look (and sometimes are) a movie setting.  and island that has it all.

3. food and wine
we filled ourselves ou with cassatelle, cannoli, fish, fried anything, gelato, the tastiest vegetables.. so we'll soon suffer of withdrawal symptom. on the other hand, there is so much more to try and taste, as local delicacies and WINE. we haven't had any proper wine tasting as the region deserves, except for the few aperitivi, so we need to arrange another field trip to make up for it.

4. it feels good
we do love travelling, discovering new places. sometimes it feels good to take off already knowing what you're expecting, though. knowing that you're going to a wonderful place, where you feel comfortable. seeing it again with new eyes. noticing all the minor changes.

5. there is so much we haven't seen yet.
we arrived to Catania on saturday at lunchtime, and didn't make it to see the famous and picturesque fish market, which is closed on sunday. that's on the top of our to-see list now, together with the western part of the island, that wasn't included in our itinerary, with cities like Trapani, San Vito Lo Capo, Erice, etc.

6. friends
old and new ♥ 
{aren't friends the best local guides? don't you love when a friend come visit your home and you can show it to him/her?}

7. a special place
there is a place where i left a small piece of my heart. a place where i was happy of that happiness that make your face tender because your're smiling too hard and can't stop. and i want to visit this place again and again to celebrate.
we're proud and so happy to announce that, on a southern and sandy beach in front of Isola delle Correnti,
we got engaged!

this last one reason alone would be enough to another visit, don't you think?
