This was also my first time spent on a cruise ship and my first time spent over night on a ship. It was my first time cruising around the Tyrrhenian sea. The first boat was called Ausonia (Palermo to Livorno) and the second was Smeralda (Livorno to Palermo)
I moved to Italy three years ago. I worked for two years in the Tuscany region and this year I've travelled through Rome (6 weeks) Pisa (3 months), Genova (2 months), Bologna (2 weeks), Venice (1 week), Naples (5 days.) Most of this trip was done under the second lockdown when Italy was empty of tourists.
I moved to Palermo, Sicily's capital at the end of May 2021 and lived there for 2 months, I left Palermo and spent 7 days in each of the following cities in this order - Agrigento, Trapani, Taormina, Ragusa, Siracusa, Catania. I finished up in Catania and I am currently there.
