Take a local breakfast on the Mediterranean island
Travellers planning to take a solo holiday to the Mediterranean island of Sicily should embrace the southern Italian way of life, through the region's food.
That is according to Liz Boulter, a subeditor and travel writer for the Guardian newspaper, who travelled to Sicily recently.
"Locals' breakfast in the fishing village of Scopello, west of Palermo, is bread still warm from the bakery, dipped in olive oil from down the road, sprinkled with salt and eaten with pecorino cheese and, of course, a good strong 'caffe'," she wrote in the news provider.
Ms Boulter suggested that travellers should embrace the Sicilian way of living through the Sicilian way of eating.
The writer also recommended taking trips around the whole of Sicily, from the capital - Palermo - to the less-popular western regions of the island: "Sicily is a big place. It's bigger than Wales, but there's more to Wales than Snowdon and the Gower," she noted.
