Jude loves lighthouses. So we just had to visit San Vito Lo Capo, which sits at the very north west tip of Sicily.
To get there, we attempted to drive the direct route over the mountains, which, even this close to the sea, rise to over 1,100 metres (3,600 ft). But, silly Mike had read the map wrong before setting off and we ended up on an extremely bumpy quarry road and had to turn back.
Going the longer route did, however, allow us to take in some of the beautiful Sicilian countryside. In between the mountains, the rolling fields were well manicured and a lot greener than we expected.
