To me, the most amazing aspect – among many other amazing things – about Sicily were the mountains.
Maybe it was because I hadn’t expected them. Maybe it was because I had moved from Lithuania whose “highest mountain” is a field which is somewhat higher than the surrounding fields. Or maybe it’s because Sicily’s mountains are simply awesome in their number, their size, their proximity to the coast and their beauty, covered in lush and healthy green.
The photo shows Mount Etna as seen from Dinnamare, a mountain right next to the Strait of Messina. This is what a large part of Sicily looks like: one chain of mountains after the other. You could go hiking for a great many years here.
