Our next stop was Siracusa, known for its architecture and ancient ruins, and as the birthplace of Archimedes. The old town is on an island called Ortigia, connected by a bridge that makes it seem […]
We started our way around Sicily after crossing over from mainland Italy with a quick no-fuss ferry to Messina. Although I had done a short visit years ago, I hadn’t quite realised how much this […]
We peppered our trip through Croatia with stops in a few of its coastal cities: Zadar, Trogir, Split and Dubrovnik.
