What is it about the Island of Ustica that makes one want to return over and over again? Perhaps one of the things is the warm welcome one receives from the people living on the island. Another is the feeling of connection with your ancesters and perhaps that is the most compelling reason.... have found that even people who have no ancesters from Ustica fall in love with the island and its residents. Louisiana traveled to Italy and visited Rome, Venice, Florence and Ustica. Rome,Venice and Florence were very interesting and beautiful but Ustica was the highlight of the trip with so much warmth, beauty and welcoming arms. 7 LADIES: Baton Rouge, La. Slidell,La.
