We left work a bit early and headed off to Gatwick airport and met Mum and Dad to catch a BA flight to Catania, Sicily. We arrived in Maggiore at 7pm and went to the car hire place to pick up the hire car for the week. We were given a brand new gleaming white Fiat 500 X which was a bit scary to have after we had been reading that Sicilian's consider road rules to be optional.
Driving into Catania to our hotel confirmed this and it was going to take a bit of time to get used to the driving. We made it to the hotel Al Duomo , however. unscathed.
That evening we had a really fantastic dinner in a little alley way near our hotel.

In the morning after a nice breakfast in the courtyard at the hotel. We then wandered around markets in Catania seeing all the very colourful fruit and vegetibles.
We then jumped in the car and headed north for a day trip to Taormina
