Never a good night’s sleep, when you set two alarms to make sure your awake at 4am. Not for me anyhow. I don’t know why I booked a 6.30am departure. From memory I think it was to avoid having to overnight in Pozzallo again and paying another €26 to the proprieter of the sosta, who I didn’t like. Anyway we bid a sad goodbye to Camping Malta and set off for the last time along that rotten road out of L-Armier. There was no traffic until we are making our way through central Valletta to the ferry port.
Back on the road we drive on north-east to Syracuse or Siracusa as the Sicilian’s know it. There isn’t much to choose from in the way of a campsite, so we call into Ippo Camping a Sosta dedicated for motorhomes. Less than 2 kilometres from the archialogical site of Syracuse and not much further to Ortygia it’s easy to get everything with the scooter. Better still it the parking places have good shade. We chill out with the help of the A/C and catch up on a sleep with an afternoon nap.
By this time we need a little relaxation, so we find a nice little bar and take in the atmosphere as well as some alcohol. Our original intention was to visit the archeological site in Syracuse early and move on. But after enjoying Ortygia, we decide to spend another day in Syracuse.
Next morning we are up and on the scooter at 9am, down to the TIM shop to top up our sim. It turns out it cheaper to buy a new sim than top up the old one. We don’t really care, we have another 30gb to burn for €30. Then we continue on the Parco Archeologico della Neapolis, just up the street or via. By 9.30 we can feel the heat in the sun as we pay €10pp and start exploring.
That enough ruins for today, so we make our way back to the Hymer for lunch and rest. In the late afternoon we scooter back into Ortygia. Enjoy a swim before chilling out in a little bar for an hour and calling it a day.
