  During the 2012 Chinese New Year break, Tina and I spent a week in Sicily as it's one the warmest parts of Europe in winter (or so we thought). We flew Qatar Aiways via Hong Kong and Doha to Rome, and landed in Palermo's Punta Raisi Airport to begin our 1-week tour of Sicily.

Starting in the northwest city of Trapani and hilltop town of Erice, we then headed south to the ancient Greek ruins of Segesta and Selinunte. We continued clockwise along the southern coast to the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, and a slight detour to savour some 2 Michelin Star cuisine in Licata. Our last two days in Sicily were spent visiting the Baroque towns of Modica, Ragusa and Noto in the southeast, and the little island of Ortygia in Siracusa. Then finally, a flight from Catania back to the Italian mainland and quick afternoon of shopping in Rome before our flight home.
