Odd to see quite so many visitors John
John Prior: Thanks Chris, I do my best to avoid them smile
I guess you were not alone in your enjoyment of Italy.
John Prior: Thanks Mary very true, not always possible to avoid tourists, and places like this in the south are gradually becoming more popular tourist destinations, although that has only happened fairly recently, so not as overrun as places like Venice, Florence or PIsa.
it reminds me a bit of Siena in Italy too...
John Prior: Thanks Chantal, yes I remember roof top views at Siena.
I would be one of the crowd, its to good a place to miss! smilelovely detail on the roofs smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, Shutterchance is still playing up, I can't access previous posts now.

Stunning colors, I've never been to the south. I always stuck to the North smile
John Prior: Well worth a visit and Sicily is amazing. Thanks Scarlet
It is quite a big place isn't it. It would be a shame if it become totally over-run by visitors every day.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, Yes indeed, although the locals would enjoy the money it brings in.
