With stunning views of the valley below, Caltagirone is one of the oldest cities in Sicily and where ceramic pottery was born. It's celebrated throughout the streets and shop windows, making the city centre very colourful and unique.

Built in Baroque style,the city is classified as an UNESCO world heritage site. Its most famous landmark is the magnificent Santa Maria del Monte stairs with 142 colourful ceramic steps which are adorned with candles, flowers and stars during festivals. On Saturdays, wander around the bustling markets while in the evenings, roam around the wide range of bars and restaurants. Well connected with buses and a train station, Caltagirone is a good location to visit other places of interests in Sicily. Sicilians are truly the warmest and the most hospitable people who are both curious and welcoming to foreigners. Being Irish myself, I feel right at home here and I'm in love with the food, weather and cheap and laid-back lifestyle.
