    We loved the company and all the places we visited. The only problem was the farm produce lunch at Selinunte. This was not the fault of the Blue-Roads. Or the lovely place we visited for lunch. However 6 of us got food poisoning. I vomited all night and had to miss the next day. Fortunately we were staying two nights at Antico Convento Dei Cappuccini Ragusa so I was able to spend the day in bed recovering and I was OK by the next day. We think it might have been the turkey which apparently had come in from another farm but someone from your company should contact the people at Selinunte and let them know there was a big problem! tI must have been food poisoning as so many of us were sick. Also noone could get the internet in our rooms at the convent, which was annoying as I had to spend the day in my room and had to go downstairs to get it. . However the convent was ideally situated for the main street of Ragusa so it was probably excellent for convenience to the town (except that I was too sick to enjoy Ragusa).
