Sicily tips for visitors

If you are traveling to Sicily please read this.

  1. I get many mails and requests of tips about Sicily; what to see, hotels to recommend, restaurants where to eat, what to eat, what to buy ecc. I rarely answer because it would be a full time job and I already have couples of activities to run every day. I recommend to go to the right side of this blog and click on Categories. There you find a collection of ten years of information about Sicily; places, towns, cities, beaches and much more. You also have a Search tool on the top where you can write key words and posts will come up.
  2. Abandoned cats and dogs. If you come here for a week or two and start to take care of street dogs and cats, do not expect to find a solution for the situation when you leave. In Sicily many animals lives on the streets, BUT many Sicilians are treating them well and leaves food. In many municipalities they have e.g. Cat Places where the municipality informs that they get fed daily. Here I have learned to always have foods e.g. in my car even if I do not have domestic animals and I leave foods outdoors every evening. Best way to help an animal, if you like, is to take it to the next veterinarian, fix a pass port and take the creature with you when you leave. The cat and dog was here before you came, and if it’s still alive it means they have foods somewhere in the area. Don’t expect to find a shelter or contact someone else to take over the “problem”. It is not always a problem, it is just a different system.

Welcome to Sicily!

Om du reser till Sicilien, l?s det h?r:

  1. ?Jag f?r m?nga mail och f?rfr?gningar om tips om Sicilien; vad att se, hotell att rekommendera, restauranger d?r man ska ?ta, vad man ska ?ta, vad man ska k?pa ecc. Jag svarar s?llan f?r att det skulle vara ett heltidsjobb och jag har redan ett par aktiviteter att ta hand om varje dag. Jag rekommenderar att du g?r till bloggens h?gra sida och klicka p? Categories. D?r hittar du en samling av tio ?rs information om Sicilien; platser, byar, st?der, str?nder och mycket mer. Du har ocks? ett s?kverktyg p? toppen d?r du kan skriva nyckelord och inl?gg kommer att komma upp.
  2. ?vergivna katter och hundar. Om du kommer hit f?r en vecka eller tv? och b?rjar ta hand om gatuhundar och katter, f?rv?nta dig inte att hitta en l?sning p? situationen n?r du l?mnar ?n. P? Sicilien finns m?nga djur p? gatorna, men m?nga sicilianare behandlar dem v?l och l?mnar mat. I m?nga kommuner har de t.ex. Kattplatser d?r kommunen informerar om att de f?r mat dagligen. H?r har jag l?rt mig att alltid ha mat, t.ex. i min bil ?ven om jag inte har husdjur och jag l?mnar mat utomhus varje kv?ll. B?sta s?ttet att hj?lpa ett djur om du vill ?r att ta det till veterin?r, fixa ett pass och ta varelsen med dig hem n?r du l?mnar. Katten och hunden var h?r innan du kom, och om den fortfarande lever betyder det att de har mat n?gonstans i omr?det. F?rv?nta dig inte att hitta ett hem eller kontakta n?gon annan f?r att ta ?ver “problemet”. Det ?r inte alltid ett problem, det ?r bara ett annat system.

V?lkommen till Sicilien!

La Falena – my first restaurant visit ever

When I came to Sicily the first time 2007 I spent my four week holiday in Marina di Ragusa area. It is also the area where Montalbano is filmed. There I found this amazing restaurant called La Falena and we eat there almost every night during these four weeks. Every time I travel here I alwasy eat at La Falena.? Do reserve a table as locals eat here and it is full almost every night.

This young man designed our dinner which of course was fish. The south sicilian cuisine is more innovative than other areas in Sicily and here we eat herb cooked fish and an amazingly beautiful sicilian Cannolo for dessert.? Best way to eat in Sicily is to let the chef decide your meal, or the waiter. La Falena has remained as one of my favourite restaurants in Sicily.

N?r jag kom till Sicilien f?rsta g?ngen 2007 tillbringade jag min fyraveckors semester i Marina di Ragusa-omr?det. Det ?r ocks? det omr?de d?r Montalbano filmats. D?r hittade jag denna fantastiska restaurang som heter La Falena och vi ?t d?r n?stan varje kv?ll under dessa fyra veckor. Varje g?ng jag reser hit ?ter vi p? La Falena. Reservera bord d? lokalbefolkningen ?ter h?r och det ?r fullt n?stan varje kv?ll.

Den h?r unge mannen designade v?r middag som var naturligtvis fisk. Det s?dra sicilianska k?ket ?r mer innovativt ?n andra omr?den p? Sicilien och h?r ?ter vi ?rtkokt fisk och en otroligt vacker siciliansk Cannolo som dessert. B?sta s?ttet att ?ta p? Sicilien ?r att l?ta kocken best?mma din m?ltid, eller servit?ren. La Falena ?r en av mina favoritrestauranger p? Sicilien.
