Very busy and then a funeral convoy of cars and people needed to get through. Shopping is interesting but there are less crowded parts of Sicily!

I was told by a shop owner that the day we were there was “quiet”. It must be hellosh in high season. Having said that, it is an interesting street, nice shops and views and about a million restaurants.

Charming town. Road to the town very curvy with beautiful views. You park in a parking garage then take elevators to top to walk into the town. A lot of gift shops, cafes, churches, medieval walls and arches. We loved the beauty of this town.
