During our tour of Sicily we did a two nights stop at a lovely homestay Agriturismo Conte Ruggero in what seemed like the middle of nowhere, but a short ride from Mount Etna. We weren’t really expecting much in terms of events that evening, but we ventured into the nearby local town and were surprised to find some lively local Easter events parading through the streets with Maria and Jesus.
