British astronaut Tim Peake took this great picture of Italy, including Sicily and Sardinia - and also Corsica, though that's part of France. If you follow the link to Flikr, you can enlarge the picture by clicking on it.

In April I was on a ship that sailed through the Straits of Messina which separates Sicily - just off the toe of "the boot" - from the mainland. From the angle of this photo it looks as if it's attached, but there is water there!
