We spent our first day trying to explore the town and all it has to offer, but we spent most of the time trying not to run into the hordes of vacationers and cruise ship groups that all seemed to have that there-are-too-many-things-to-look-at-so-I-will-look-at-them-all-without-watching-where-I-am-going oblivious saunter down pat. We ended up finding a safe place in an Irish Pub (of course) that had some good eats and pints of cider to help quench the thirst created by having to play 'dodge the tourist' in unbearable heat for a few hours.
The next morning we got up to yet another gorgeous but swelteringly hot day. We were told that it hasn't rained in the area since May! For some reason we thought it would be a great idea to hike about 300 vertical metres up the mountain to the wee town of Castelmola. We quickly understood why we were the only two people on the path up... whew. It was more than worth it however as the town was really cute and the views were breathtaking. Once we got back to town we decided if you can't beat'em, join'em, so we did our best to meander about the streets and just take in the views of some of the most beautiful coastline on the Mediterranean.
Tomorrow it is off to San Giorgio di Morgeto!!!
