THE CITY OF WINE AND SALT

Marsala is a port city in North-western Sicily. It is famous for its Marsala wine and for its Saline...salt ponds.

Here are some pictures around the city




Do you believe the size of this cannolo?  It's bigger than we are!  



This is where we get our salt from. 






Pizza and Nutella....Italian icons!

  1. I was just wondering why some of the pictures looked so familiar, and clicked a few posts back - how relieved I am to discover that you posted most of this already on April 3rd! :-)

  2. I do like sea salt. It looks like you and your daughter had a nice time in Marsala. I like what you are wearing for the trip. Pizza and Nutella are so very well known all around the world.

  3. it looks like a beautiful place to visit (and also have some cannoli, if they're so bigger!, mwhaha)
    You look cute, even when wrapped in clothes, and love your hats!

  4. Francesca, I didn't know about Marsala's salt flats. Years ago when I lived in the San Francisco area, I discovered that the bay was home to a similar collection of salt flats. Also I thought that Nutella was an English affectation. Thanks for straightening my out! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
