Where are you wintering now in Sardinia? If in Cagliari or along the western coast, I'd suggest you do a loop around Sicily's south coast. Sciacca is worth a stop for multiple reasons - just walking over to the commercial fishing
harbor and watching them start with huge tree trunks and end up building a 90' fishing boat
is fascinating - and it's located inbetween the two main Greek city states that were located in Sicily. And the comments about Siracusa is spot-on. Rarely do you hear cruising folks describe disappointment with visiting there. And then...assuming you make it to that point, a stop in Malta
is definitely worth considering because of its unique historic sites and multi-cultural/multi-ethnic history
. Of course, if you are on Sardinia's east coast
, the sirens of Italy are calling and doing a southern loop around Sicily won't appeal.
