Godfather t-shirt, Sircusa


Since we were at sea this morning sailing to Sicily, we had a lecture on the Mafia. Very interesting how crime syndicates can rule a country. You will see a "Godfather" t-shirt we saw in a shop.

It was a beautiful sunny day!! Finally!! We had a walking tour through the city; visiting a beautiful cathedral.

Siracusa was part of a Greek colony in the eight century BC. Before the colony settled in what we know as Siracusa today.

Europe's oldest ritual baths can be found in the Jewish quarter.

And of course, Silvia had a surprise for us again. Coffee, canneloni, and a wonderful chocolate cookie.
