Very few tourists brave southern Italy at any time, especially in August! However, it proved rewarding for me, as I chose to visit the ancient city of Siracusa (Syracuse) on the east coast of Sicily. Beautiful old city with narrow streets, ancient buildings, beautiful blue mediterranean water, where I would jump off the "swimming rock" into sea to cool off during the scorching summer days. This part of Sicily still has that quiet, undiscovered ancient character, where you can easily fall into the locals routine of buying your groceries at the market in the late morning before it gets too hot, haggling with the vendors over the price of capers and tomatoes. Afternoons are for lying in the sun and basking in the refreshing waters of the mediterranean. At night as it cools outside, long conversations over a glass of the fabulous local wines which are just making their way onto the international scene. Savour this little piece of the undiscovered before this jewel attracts the masses, which it inevitably well. This is too good a secret to keep for long!
