    We stayed here for three nights in early May. Nothing much to add to other accurate reports apart from the fact that our first attempt at anchoring stern to did not work out as the anchor didn’t dig in. I was being cautious after reading reports of snagged anchors. Second time I made sure it dug in well and all was good. We had some strong winds but no problem. When we left the anchor came up with lots of mud. A great place to stop.

    This is Syracuse's free town quay. Request permission from Harbourmaster before tieing up. Extremely well protected with N winds. Bit of swell creeps in but its bearable. Despite some trepidation around reviews of fouled anchors we were lucky enough to get away unscathed (albeit with an anchor covered in mud and clay - testament to the very good holding). Syracuse is a must-see in Sicily.

    Caution must be exercised when mooring here. Was tied side to with plenty of room and no problems for 2 days. On the third was told to Med Moor by the Guarda Costiia. This was a problem, with no mooring balls or bow lines provided, at the north end you must use your anchor. Two other boats snagged a large 5 inch braided line that was on the bottom and I fowled my chain on an obstruction. They managed to free themselves, I needed a diver, at the cost of €240. The not happy with having to med moor when there was plenty of space to side tie. Apparently snagging is a regular occurrence here. When the wind blows it can be a challenge to stay off the wall too.
