During my trip to Sicily in August I had the pleasure of staying in Caltavuturo for two days. It is a small town with a population of about 4,400. It’s in the mountains of Sicily, about an hour and a half away from Palermo.
It’s not a tourist destination, its old school Sicily. Expect to be given strange looks, don’t take it personally. They are staring because you are a new face. OK, I did get stared at more than the bf and his parents because there are no foreigners and the braids didn’t help. However, when in the bars or gelateria the people of the town are very welcoming.
If you go in summer spend the night and enjoy the fresh cool mountain air, away from the heat of the city.
Do you prefer to visit small towns or big cities?
