Best of Sicily and Southern Italy

I dare you to look at these photos and you not fall in love with the best of Sicily and Southern Italy. Stunning beaches, ancient towns; it is all here.

We have covered a little of Southern Italy in the past. My wife Maria has a great feature on the Amalfi Coast  and there is our popular page listing the best beaches in Sardinia! Then we've some "secrets" of Southern Italy and a lot about the Cilento region too.

Not satisfied with that though we have been searching out new places; first was our discovery of the best beach on the island of Sicily, which we feature on our Italian wines site. Of course, with our trip being part of our wine research we discovered plenty of great wineries too, as well as amazing places to stay 

We took many photos but so few of them really capture the beauty of the place.

Thank goodness then for our photographer friends like Doug Porter and others who have solved the problem by sharing photos that truly capture the magic of Sicily and Southern Italy.

The photos above are of Savoca, Sicily. This is the village where Francis Ford Coppola filmed many of the Sicilian scenes for Godfather Pt1. This bar is where Michael Corleone asks Appolonia's father if he may see his daughter.  There's an incredible hotel nearby where an entire Godfather style village is now the hotel, you can read more and see the pics here.
