Look chic in Sicily—or just down the street.
We thought we'd share our latest discoveries
from our last photo shoot in Catania, Sicily
and the perfect flats for travel.
Start the day with a brioche and granita in Siracusa—yes, the sweet Italian ice is considered acceptable breakfast food. Explore Greek ruins in this town, where light plays off limestone. A stretch ballet with a single piece sacchetto construction molds to the foot, so it's comfy on the stone streets.
Catania isn't a direct flight from most airports, and generally requires a stopover in Rome. A slip-on stretch boot looks chic for a long day in the airport. (Always wear a boot versus packing it to save space.)
Sicilians love their fresh food, and there are gorgeous street markets everywhere featuring local products like prickly pears, seafood, and spices. Be sure and tour the market at Palermo—famous for its street food stands. A driving moccasin is a no-slip way to navigate the crowds.

Etna is an active volcano on the outskirts of Catania, and the nutrients in the soil make for delicious produce. Wear a sharp pair of flats to have oogoli (a special egg-colored mushroom) and hand-rolled pasta at Lo Drago. Afterward, we walked it off with a tour of a nearby vineyard.
